Baby Autumn and Puppy Kemper
“My Bed Now.”
Brinkley is just so thrilled about the new year… ha!
We hope you had a wonderful time celebrating with your family.
The day started with presents for everyone, lounging around, a 2 mile walk for the dogs, lounge around, and then more lounging around. There was food and play time in the mix with all of that too. The day ended up with Chinese food take out, as usual.
The dogs were spoiled throughout the day, including getting bacon at breakfast and then some dumplings from Autumn’s wonton soup. Sweet pups that need diets in the new year, just like all of us who have had an extra cookie, or 5!

I’m not a big fan of all the Black Friday madness.
I actually prefer what REI does- close and encourage people to go outside. See, this is helpful to avoid getting into fist fights with someone over the latest toy and it helps burn off all that dessert you had the night before.
Their #optoutside campaign is great and I really wanted to particaipte in it, but the weather was lousy on Friday here. So we hung around at home and went to 2 post offices to get Hunter’s passport processed for our upcoming cruise. Fun stuff! ha!
But on Saturday we hit up Lettuce Lake Park to stroll around the loop and take in the greenery.
The park isn’t too far from our house and the City of Tampa, so we like to come here when the weather is nice. The oak canopies are just to beautiful that I can’t resist it.
And the dogs like any excuse to be out in fresh air.
We use these “In Training” bandannas (from Pooch Crafts) just to help other’s know that we like space since the dogs get a little too excited.
Also, I give them a lot of praise and corrections while walking, so I swear people also judge me a little less when I am talking to the dogs if the bandannas are on.
Besides the main loop that takes you around the park, there is a boardwalk that takes you over the lake.
Strollers and dogs aren’t allowed on it as it’s pretty narrow, so I stayed back with Hunter and the dogs while Price and Autumn went to stroll around on it.
While Autumn was playing with some kids at the jungle gym, Price walked around with the dogs testing their training by starting and stopping walking, thus making them ‘heel’ and sit without verbal commands. They did such a great job.
Can’t wait for our next visit!
$2 CASH per vehicle. Up to 8 people per vehicle. Rentals are extra.

These Peanut Butter and Banana Frozen Dog Treats are so super simple to make so whipping up a batch will be quick and easy for you. And before you know it, your dog will be giving you extra kisses to thank you.
These treats just need 3 ingredients: Bananas, Peanut Butter, and Coconut Oil.
Each of those ingredients provide different great nutrients and vitamins that are great for your dog to stay fit and healthy.
Plus, you won’t believe how easy they are to make!
You just need to beat everything together until smooth, pour into some fun molds, and freeze.
I picked up these fun dog bone and paw print silicon molds that are great for these frozen treats, as well as ice cubes for your dog to munch on to stay cool. You can even make ice cubes and add them to your own drinks. I won’t tell! #dogmom
The best thing is that they are super healthy for your doggo.
I first featured this recipe on my other cooking and travel blog, I am a Honey Bee, but wanted to share it here with you as well. Now your pups can enjoy these delicious and healthy Peanut Butter and Banana Frozen Dog Treats. Two paws up!
For Brinkley’s 2nd birthday, at the end of June, we made her some fun puppy approved cupcakes. Pupcakes, if you will.
They are loaded with dog approved ingredients like peanut butter, while limiting the ones that can irritate their bellies, like grains.
The birthday girl gobbled them up in no time at all. She even shared with Kemper and he loved them too!
I first featured this recipe on my other blog, I am a Honey Bee, but wanted to share it here with you so that your pups can enjoy these delicious Peanut Butter Pupcakes that are topped off with Peanut Butter Frosting. Yum yum yum!
