Have Puppy, Will Stay Home

David and I both enjoyed a week of vacation this past week. We might have gone somewhere, but we have this new puppy. So we had fun at and around home instead. We went to Branson for the day with my parents and ate some great barbecue at Famous Dave's at the Landing. We took a drive to Arkansas to see if Buffalo Point would make a good camping spot. We raked. Well, David raked. I whined about how much I hate raking. We ate breakfast for supper. On Saturday, we went to my aunt and uncle's to see the cabin my uncle built. It's really cool! It doesn't look at all new - looks like it's been in that spot in the woods for many years. Riley really loved being a country dog! He ran beside the four-wheelers with the other two dogs, dipped his toes in any available water, and generally had a great time. All the world's problems disappear when sitting on this porch looking over the creek. I wish I could go there everyday! Riley might too, although he was worn out by the time we got home.
Today, David had to go back to work. Vacation over. Mine lasted one more day and Christina and I decorated some fall cookies. We may have sampled a few too! It feels like fall outside again, and it was nice to spend the day with a good friend in a warm kitchen.

I'm already looking forward to our next vacation! It was just as relaxing and renewing as going somewhere would have been. And Riley sure has enjoyed having his people home. He may have a rough day tomorrow!
