Busy and a birthday!

Remington Drive is now in WI!

We worked outside yesterday and 
got the yard ready for the fairies 
and gnomes.  They should be arriving
any day now. 

I even got my flag up and a nice 
light to shine on it....

It is SO hot here!  105 degrees yesterday!

We cut it short on the outside work but 
before we did I had some fun!

It felt GREAT!

Today is Mr. Ripley's 
1st birthday!

I can't believe a whole year
has already gone by....

Seems like only yesterday he 
was just a little guy....

So tonight we are going to have a
birthday party!  Cake for all!

Also -- I am going to be gone again 
for a few days....
we have to unpack the basement now....

So until next week --

Have a funtastic weekend, 
my friends!

Later -- Remington --
loving WI!
-- out!

In one picture you remind me of a black bear! But your face is so much cuter! Unpacking=no fun.

A big Happy 1st Birthday to sweet Ripley! Enjoy your cake and pawty!

I think you got my heat. I have had those temps now for the past two weeks. Awfully hot! The hose is a great idea. I bet that felt pawsome!

Love your flag! And your street sign is pawsome! Have fun unpacking!


Ann said...

105 is a scorcher especially when you're wearing a fur coat. Happy Birthday to Ripley

Sagira said...

Looks like you had a great time in the hose.

Happy Birthday Mr. Ripley! :)

Happy Birthday Mr. Ripley! I was wondering how he and Ozabella were adjusting to the move. I hope you are doing ok and finding your way around. I know it is hot there, cause Mommy and Daddy both have relatives nearby and everyone is so hot. It is hot in Michigan too and we had bad storms. I was pretty scared, but I imagined you putting your big arms around me and comforting me and it was better. I can't wait to see you. Call me when you have a minute.

JackDaddy said...

You're not supposed to move AND do a blog at the same time! You're making me feel guilty! :)

I ran through our sprinkler with my cousin and youngest brother yesterday afternoon!! Fun, fun, fun!! The weather was not exactly hot, but enjoyed ourselves, anyway!! I transformed into a little girl again while running like some screaming maniac through that sprinkler!! I was no longer 28!! ;op
Love, Raelyn.... And Rose, my BEAUTIFULLY UNIQUE "Mystery Dog"!!

Rouky said...

Have a great week-end Remington! We are happy to see that you'll have plenty of space to run in your new place. Great!
We're sending lots and lots of energy to your human mom and dad! They sure have a lot to do, but it'll be worth it. A new home!

Jed and Abby in MerryLand said...

Wow, what a lot of major changes in your lives! Are the new owners of your MN house going to keep feeding the wildlife at your old house? We're looking forward to learning about your new neighbors - especially the animals. How do Forrest and Mr. Ripley like the new house? Can you root for both the Vikings and the GBP's? We can root for both the Ravens and the Redskins because they don't play in the same league.

105 is VERY hot!! Hope you got a chance to cool off and maybe go swimming or play in the sprinkler. Happy Birthday Ripley! OMD this year has gone fast! We see you are very important - a street is even named after you!!!

Trixie, Lily, and Sammy-Joe said...

It was 105 where we live, too! Mama would barely let us outside. We can't believe tiny little Ripley is already a year old! Happy birthday, Ripley!
