Granny came to visit

Grandma Rosie came to visit this past week. She lives an eight hour drive away.. well ten to eleven if she is driving. She stops a lot, for the dog. She brought the dog with her, monster molly. She isn't really a monster, granny calls her "high maintinance". She is a cattle dog, so she likes to be the boss and herd everything, including granny a little. Bug loves it when she comes to visit. They share a quirkiness between them.. they both start singing for no apparent reason ( I admit I do too.. must run in the family) and they both like to tease me.
Grandma likes to take lots of walks and so does Bug. We went for a couple nice walks with her and enjoyed the beautiful fall weather. Here are some pics from our adventures.
The goats followed us. Here is Molly the goat getting a snack of some douglas fir needles.
Here are some of our maples showing their color.




Granny and her dog Molly...



We had a super nice visit and on the way home from picking up Bug at daycare she called to tell me she made it to my brothers house. I got off the phone and Bug was pouting. I asked what was wrong and he said " I wanted to play with grandma when I got home and now she's gone"

I assured him that she would be back again soon.

PS. Mom if you are reading this don't start getting upset because I called you quirky.. or that I think your dog is a monster... I love you both.
