Sunday Sharing

My trek to The Tundra has turned fur homeI've taken up my pawsition as we head from Iowa to Indiana
Here we go again
This sign made us think of one of our CHAT pals en France!
The Mighty Mississippi River
Oh how I loved my khorner!
Khurled or standing!
My Monday evening spot whilst in Mishawaka IN
Snoozy and woozy from all the fun
Eva Brice Summiiii Khady Lynn Thor Marco Polo and All The Nice Pawrents I fuzzed and snoofed!
Tuesday morning's breakfast prep spot - I tukhked it there - Mom pikhked it up and brought it along fur the ride - chekhk out the video below fur that!
Tuesday AM tour of the grounds
There were some blooms left
I had to snoof 'em!
We were on the sekhond floor at this Country Inn&Suites so I got to do the steps each time we went in and out
Leading Mom down the hall to our room - the last one on the left - but it wasn't skhary at all!

SIDE NOTE FROM MOM - the weather had the potential for being scary - we traveled from Iowa to Indiana with tornado watches in place until 2am Tuesday - we saw the footage from Northern Illinois - and if you check out the Photobucket from this last part of the trip, you'll see the changing skies as we headed East - we knew something was up as the temperature was upper 60's to low 70's!

One last pikh in the room
Heading bakhk to Pawsylvania with SO many memories!!!

Making sure she was heading in the khorrekht direkhtion although I REALLY wanted to head bakhk to MN and IA!
Turn the Xterra around Turn the Xterra around
Oh well - woo khan't blame me fur trying!
Sorry this is a bit blurry but I told Mom to inkhlude it anyway
The BEAST awaits us - I hope we khan get past her!!! Akhtually, we had pawed each other about trying to get together fur some shopping and then some smoothies but the timing wasn't going to work fur us - we hit Da Burgh around 4:30pm - and given the day prior to the day prior to the holiday traveling, we had to take a snowchekhk this time - hopefully we khan get together sometime!
We made it!
It looks like I remember - minus some leaves on the trees!
Getting khloser
It was truly a khool time skywise - we wished we khould have gotten some better sunset pikhs - there are some in the Photobukhket - akhtually, Mom inkhluded them in this week's Sky and Stuff slideshow too

About an hour from here, the tunnels start - or end depending upon your direkhtion - along The PA Turnpike - with the furstlast one being a double dose - we exited to the just past full Full Beaver moon - Mom khouldn't get any pikhs since it was like 6:45pm with vehikhle lights and highway overhead lights - she tried - but it was a pawesome welkhome bakhk to my part of PA!Of khourse, this was another pawesome AND tasty welkhome bakhk!

Here is the last Photobukhket Slideshow of THE TRIP

It khovers our Monday and Tuesday from Des Moines IA to Mishawaka IN to York PA!

Here is the video Mom shot Tuesday AM as we bid farewell to Indiana!

There isn't a transport this weekend so Mom and I get to spend more time together! We'll be bakhk tomorrow to share a furry special transport opportunity! I know some of woo have seen it already but we'll make our grand announcement here on Monday MOMday!

Once again, we are furry glad all have enjoyed sharing our adventures!

We enjoyed the pictures of the final leg of your trip. We thought you did a really good job of securing your biskhuit before taking off for Pawsylvania. One thing we didn't understand was why your mom said you couldn't have any khake. We must have heard wrong.

JackDaddy said...

I hope you remembered to get your biscuit before you left. You wouldn't want housekeeping to find it and take it home to their puppy!!!

the_Dogfather said...

Stella said...

Khyra, you sure are a good traveler!! What lovely pictures and places you got to go! I love the way your biscuits and treats are placed in hiding spots for you to find. That's a great idea!! We can understand you wanting to stay but wasn't it great to get back home!! Lots of love, Holly and mom

Tweedles -- that's me said...

The photo bucket photos are awsome. You shared so much of your Tundra trip. I never heard of a Beaver moon before,,,, did it look like a beaver?
We are so happy the wildness of mother nature did not scare you with a tornado or anything.
Thank you for taking us along on your journey,, what a memory for you.

Gus, Louie and Callie said...

Oh the soup was awesome.. Dad found the recipe but Mom can't find it right now. He found it on some beer website.. It has cheese, cabbage, onion, one bottle of dark beer, chicken broth, dig-ion mustard, flour, and smoked sausage in it.. Mom used brats she thought it would have been just great without the brats like a cabbage cheese soup..
