Home Sweet Home

After our trip away at the Oregon coast, it was time to help unpack.

Some of us helped more than others.

It was a lot of work getting everything organized.

On her way to work, Alexandria grabbed her scarf and...

Surprise! Jinky had been hiding in her scarf the whole time!

He had come all the way from the Pacific Northwest to live with us.

"I missed you guys so much!"

We had so much fun all day together.

But the next day, Jinky started to look a little glum.

I tried to ask what was wrong, but Jinky wasn't sure...

"What's the matter Jinky?"

"I'm not sure..."

So we threw a welcome home party in hopes of cheering Jinky up.

 But Jinky still looked sad.

As he sat on the scarf he liked so much, I brought up some tea 
so we could talk and I could try to cheer him up:

"This tea should make you feel a little better."


"Hey you sure like Alexandria's scarf!"  

 "The pattern on this scarf kind of reminds me of the sea"

  "Hey! That gives me a great idea!"

 "Come on! Follow me!"

"Where are we going?"

"You'll see!"

 "Hey Sweet Peg, I need you to..."

 "Already on it!"

"Wow! I just don't know how he does it!"

"Oh wow! Is that for me?"

"Sure is!"


 "Ah, Just right!"

"Welcome home Jinky!"

July Fun and a New Critter?!

July 1st started off with a bang when I surprised Alexandria with her favorite birthday cake!

"Surprise! Happy Birthday!"

Wow is she getting old! I nearly burned my leaf off!

"Don't forget to put a ring around a candle for an extra birthday wish!"

But of course it wasn't long before Sweet Peg started chowing down.

"Whoa there Sweet Peg! Don't ya think it's too big to eat all at once?!"

Next we took off for the Oregon coast for a little 4th of July fun!

I met two little Octopi named Inky and Jinky.

"Oh,  hello! Nice coral"

"Why thank you"

Jinky invited us to play in his sand box where he sells soda.

Sweet Peg drank a little too much soda, but it was a party!

Somehow, I don't think Jinky minded our company. I have a feeling that 
we will be seeing Inky and Jinky back at home very soon!
