While our weather hasn't been optimal (rain in February is Not Good), the warm, wet weather has actually given us snowball snow. Usually our snow is quite dry and powdery (giving us the Greatest Snow on Earth), but lately our snow has been quite wet. Not so good for powder skiing, but great for snowballs! And playing 'fetch' with snowballs is Way Fun!
|Unless your sister snooter-bombs the photo and tries to steal YOUR frisbee!|
|But I got plenty more snowballs!|
|"Snowball, you are no match for my Jaws of Doom!"|
|"Abs, THIS is how you catch snowballs."|
|"Yeah, um, something like that!"|
|I've got it in my sights!|
|And I've got it in my mouth!|
Of course, frisbee action is always good, too!
|I got it!!|
|A basic frisbee catch - part of the compulsory maneuvers required in the Olympic event.|
|Nice Angle of Retrieval - that will get her high marks in the open portion of the frisbee competetion!|
|Doodle Lake is sure to wow the Russian judges!|
|I've got it Mom - get ready to throw it again!|
|I've got mine for you, too, Mom!|
|Pay no attention to the frisbee behind me. I want THIS one!|
February is Heart Health Month, so I agreed to 'Go Red' to raise awareness for women's heart health!
For some reason, Mom is enamored with snooter shots. Luckily, Abby is always willing to show off her ginormous snooter!
|Holy Hippo-snooterus, Batman!|
|Thanks for making my snooter look, ginormous, too, Mom!|
|Yes, let's return to the original ginormous snooter. (Wow. That schnozz is HUGE!)|
|Yes, I AM pretty! Thank you!|
|Thanks for the treats, Mom!|
She really likes "the ephemeral nature" of paw prints. (So why does she complain so much about our muddy paw prints in spring? Apparently they aren't so "ephemeral". Actually, Mom has been commenting about how archaeologists will find muddy paw prints in our kitchen in 10,000 years. Gee, Mom, maybe you should break out a mop, if you are worried about archaeological finds...)
|Here one moment, gone the next!|
|Aspens in a blue-bird day.|
|Note the big slabs of ice - which is why Mom really wanted it to slide while we were far, far away!|
