Weekend Trails and Happy Tails

I am thankful that spring has finally arrived. Minnesota winters can be long and harsh and seem never-ending at times. I tend to want to hibernate during that dark, cold, icy season. But Spring has finally staked its place and I'm venturing out from my cozy den. Now that it is warmer, one of my favorite things to do on the weekends with my husband is to take our fur babies for a walk through the neighborhood nature preserve.

This is the view of Sadie enjoying some much needed freedom. I have a love/hate relationship with her right now. Some days she is "my husband's dog" (like when she chewed up my electric blanket) and on her good days she is my snuggle bug.

Cricket on the other hand is too smart to ever dare misbehave. She is seriously one of the smartest dogs. I know I'm biased, but she is. She understands most everything I tell her. I'm just waiting for her to burst out talking to me one of these days.

A little sniff here, a little sniff there...

And oh wow! We saw an Egret flying around and land way up there!

Oh little mallard, we didn't mean to give you a scare. We won't bother you, we'll just stare.

Did you enjoy our little nature walk? I hope you have a wonderful time on the trail you choose to venture down this weekend! xoxo, Jamie
