the joys of Go4aWalk? days #152 to #160: the dandelions are out!

the

joys of

Go4aWalk? day #152 to #160 . . .

day #152 to #160 complete . . . we took many 35 to 45 minute long pack walks this past week.  thankfully they were mostly dry as we planned our walks around many rain events . . . which was no small achievement in Calgary.  😉

we walked to the grocery store, the bank and just around our neighbourhood.  that’s when we noticed the most ubiquitous flowering plant in Calgary in full bloom.  😉  dandelions are colourful, edible and pretty.  children love them and never get into trouble for “picking some flowers for mommy.” 🙂

thanks for showing off

your mad skills

buddy.

the

joys of

Go4aWalk? day #148 to #151 . . .

day #148 to #151 complete . . . we took 30 to 45 minute long pack walks every day this weekend.  it also rained every day this weekend here in Calgary.  does Jake look like he is enjoying yet another rainy day walk?

his favourite part of the walk was at the very end,

when he got dried with

a soft, warm

towel.
