I was so lucky this week!  I got to go on three hikes with Mommy and her friends who were visiting.  I probably would have been taken on a fourth hike if it hadn’t snowed on Sunday!

I just love being outside on hikes, it feels so good to breathe in the fresh air and take in all the new sniffs.  On one our hikes at Staunton State Park, the smell of pine trees was so powerful – I’ve never smelled pine so strong before and it was fresh and clean.  There’s a beautiful pond at the park, Mommy asked me not to swim in it because my ears have been bothering me.   She thinks getting water in my ears keeps them from healing so I listened to her because I want my ears to feel better soon.

Our friends left this morning.  It always makes me a little sad to say goodbye to friends who visit but I know they had fun, and I did too.  It’s special to have people visit Mommy and me because it means we try new things and go on adventures.  This time the adventures were beautiful hikes in the Colorado mountains.
