One week from today one of these good-looking boys will be coming home to us. Susie said "I love them all" so that should let you know how far we've narrowed it down!
Green Boy (Checkers)
Is such a ham.
Is very reserved and laid back.
Is a cuddle bug and lover, but will go and do anything you want him to do.
Is playful and ready for fun.
Light Blue Boy
Is a sweetheart and is very mellow and laid back.
The boys are 6 weeks old and less than a week until we make a road trip to visit. They are growing fast and look like fat fluff balls now just like Peyton was. Some also have name changes since they've ditched the nail polish for colors (good move for the boys).
Orange Boy is now Purple Boy
Is a sweet cuddle bug.
Checker Boy is now Green Boy
Is always up and going. He is always on the move.
Black is really laid back ...
The Golden boys are 5 weeks old now and we are less than 2 weeks away from visiting them and a week after that one will be coming home. We included personality updates from Laura.
Is such a little spitfire with personality. He is everywhere you go and is just a doll.
Is a cuddle boy. He is just not bothered by anything.
Is reserved and just like ok I'm here what now.
Was just not having any of it today he ...
The Golden Retriever boys are now 4 weeks old which means in 4 more weeks one will be coming home to us. Susie keeps telling Peyton that her life is about to change - well all of our lives will get a little crazy! Susie thinks that Peyton will be a little jealous and I think that Peyton won't leave his side.
We had never camped at Niobrara State Park and spent four nights there over Memorial weekend and really enjoyed it. It is a big park with a lot of hills and great views with a nice campsite at the bottom of it. We had some friends camping there and also met several new people. Our routine was pretty much the same every day - hike in the morning, have lunch at the campsite and relax, eat too much for dinner, then ...
The Golden Retriever puppies that we are getting a boy from are 2 weeks old now. We have 6 weeks left to enjoy our nice and quiet home. After that we'll be running from the razor-sharp teeth! The girls are marked on their bottoms and the boys are marked between the shoulder blades.

Fuji had a litter of 6 boys and 4 girls on Cinco de Mayo and Peyton will have a brother to play with in 8 weeks. The theme for the litter is "science".
It's going to be a busy summer with a puppy and putting up a pole barn!
In August when we were camping at Lake Red Rock in Iowa, we watched a story on IPTV about Jeff Grewe that included his nighttime photography. The photos were stunning and something I had never seen before and I wanted to try it sometime. Last Saturday was a day shy of a full moon, some clouds, and it was very nice weather for November so I took my camera and tripod out to our prairie.
All of these photos were taken around ...
