Beignets Any Day

We are going to New Orleans the first weekend in October with Danny's family. One of my favorite eateries is Cafe Du Monde. The beignets beat pancake Sunday any day! This is my last box of beignet mix. The chickory coffee was gone long ago (even though Danny said I could just buy it online, it's not the same as bringing it home from a NOLA vacation).

If I Had To Choose...

...I don't think I could either. These are two characters in the Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels. My mom and I would read a new book every summer. Good entertainment!

Liebe's Larvae

This is just gross! Liebe had a knot on her side that she kept licking. We noticed it about a week ago and thought it was a scab from a scratch. WRONG! We took her to the vet today because it was getting bigger. Turns out it was a Bot Fly larvae. The vet asked if we were squeamish, then proceeded...

So for the next 10 days, we have to give Liebe an antibiotic, an anti-inflamatory, an antiseptic wash, and doggy neosporin. Just plain nasty.

Grand Lake Escape

This panoramic was taken by Tony's friend Tyler who went with us to Grand Lake this year. (They actually climbed this mountain to get this shot!)

Our little cabin! Danny and I could live here after the kids leave the nest!

In the meantime, the kids get the front room to hang out.

This beer is called "the white cap". Really good stuff!

The gas station in town. See the mountain in the background?
THAT'S the mountain the boys hiked.

Danny fishing in luxury.

The spoiled prince.
