Backyard Pugs

April 11, 2011

Homeschooling, Pets & Animals

Before we moved into my parent’s place to save money for our upcoming adventure, we had a backyard.

Oh the possibilities!

One afternoon, it was particularly hot and everyone was particularly cranky.  We decided to seek comfort under the big avocado tree in our backyard.  We set up a fan (because we’re classy like that), spread out a blanket, and read a book.  Everyone’s mood changed dramatically.  It was a small change of scenery but since we normally read on the couch reading outside became an “adventure” (kids are so easy to please).  Adventures always help bad moods.  And the fan!  Who doesn’t love a fan on a hot day. We weren’t the only one to enjoy ourselves so did the pugs.

With love,
Jenn

I'm Jenn and I'm so happy you stopped by our little corner of the web. My favorite moments are cuddling with my boys, listening to the purrs of my cat, and sipping warm cups of tea. The smell of orange blossoms conjures up delightful memories of childhood even though I grew up in Indiana hundreds of miles from citrus groves. I love animals and when I'm stressed I dream of owning a goat farm. I love art, road trips, books, and food. Vintage clothes make me ridiculously happy. Red lipstick is my friend.

    Hi! Janetha turned me (and all her readers) on to your blog, and I’m making my way through it from the beginning so I can catch up, and join you in real time. The pictures of your pugs (I want at least one, but need to wait until I can move to a pet-friendly abode) – especially those of Nigel – totally cracked me up. The expressions are simply hilarious.

    I so admire/envy your journey. If I was to do something similar, I would be driving a classic pink and white VW bus, and pulling a tricked out pink
    third wheel, detailed with whimsical flowers. I love pink. And flowers. ;-)

    Can’t wait to read more!
