Vicky and Ody Visit!

One of the wonderful things about being back in the states is reconnecting with old friends. Here I am with my hubby, Stan, and my dear friend Vicky Alvear Shecter
She drove up from Atlanta, partly to see me, and mostly so that I could meet Ody!
He's a "Malta-poo" and weighs about 8 pounds, and he love, love, loved our fuzzy rug.
Even at his teeny size, you can't take doggies just anywhere, so we got creative with our destinations. First we hit a cider house. They had a band and it was super-crowded, so we went down the road to a produce stand that had a small, hand-made activity park. For instance, they had this awesome slide made out of a John Deer turbine.
And they'd done amazingly creative things with hay bales. There was the chicken...
and the Angry Birds (the sign says "don't climb on the hay bales," because, you know, it would make them angry)...
and there was the Piggy House!
We were having so much fun just walking around and talking, especially in the corn maze.
And we got silly with the straw men photo op.
Ody especially loved the chickens. Well, maybe love isn't the right description. HE was quite confused by the mini-raptors.
It was the perfect spot to hang out with a wee doggie and catch up on four years apart. So FUN!!!
