Beautiful day to be outside..

So we decided to go fishing Saturday and enjoy the nice weather. Of course mom couldn’t resist taking some pictures of me!

I don’t blame her I am very photogenic ๐Ÿ˜‰

Enjoying the outdoors..

Just a basset enjoying some quality outdoor time in the sunshine…I have my eye on a pile of deer poop to roll in if mom doesn’t get it first ๐Ÿ˜‰

Note from Mom : ( I did not get to the deer poo pile first, it’s a nice day for a bath)

Adventure day

So we went on a little outdoor adventure a couple weeks ago… it involved hiking, rock climbing and waterfalls. Even though I’m very athletic I was still pretty pooped afterwards..luckily we stopped at my favorite pizza place ( it’s my favorite cause they have picnic tables outside and I’m allowed to sit at them for dinner) I got a nice drink and some pizza bones, all in all a good day!

Roast Basset

It’s been so hot here lately I can hardly keep up with my duties…patrolling, barking, fertilizing….you get the point.

Mom caught me baking in the sun the other day…I was too exhausted to move…I thought I wasn’t going to make it.

Luckily she was able to revive me with some ice cream…it was a close call.

Note from mom: at no time was Miss Lilly in any danger of overheating…she can sometimes be a tad over dramatic.

Sunny day spree..

Miss Lilly has been out enjoying the nice sunny weather the last couple days…which means moving from sunny spot to sunny spot to relax.

She did manage to hop up on her favorite garden bench to survey her kingdom in between naps. She found everything to be in order except for a few leaves!!

Too hot to Garden!

The weather here in the northeast has been unusually hot and muggy with temperatures reaching 80 by 10AM. Now while Miss Lilly is sort of ok with basking in the heat her sister does not share her enthusiasm. She spends most of the time inside right beside the air conditioner, outside in the shade or in her pool. While lying in the shade she does get a lovely view of some of our flowers around the house which have been blooming like crazy thanks to all the rain and heat.

Gardens

Since it is too hot to do anything else she had me take some pictures of a couple of her favorites from around the house.

Now it is back to the pool to cool down and of course get a nice refreshing drink!! Stay cool everyone!!

Our Weekend Find

So we had some lovely weather this weekend and the entire family spent a lot of time playing & working outdoors. (this means mom & dad did a lot of work and baby boys and dogs played!) While we were having one of our outdoor adventures Miss Lilly spotted this strange creature over by some of our flower pots.

Our Weekend Finds

Our first look at our new friend…

Obviously the rest of the family had to come and take a closer look, this resulted in me telling dad to keep Riley away until we know what it is, both the girls running away everytime it flicked its wings and us trying to get some pictures before it flew away!!

Our Weekend Finds

My first close-up…still couldn’t tell if it was a butterfly or a moth..

I was able to get one more good picture in before all of the commotion scared our friend away…

Our Weekend Finds

Definitely larger than it appeared at first glance!!

The girls diligently tried to find it again by going around and searching all of the flowers around the house (some of them were due for a good trampling anyway!) but to no avail! Our winged friend was gone and we are left with the mystery of trying to find out whether it was a butterfly or a moth. What do you think it was? Any insights would be appreciated!!
