Happiness is having your owner return to claim you

For the past four months, I've been watching over a number of favorite stuffed animals belonging to my granddaughter, Mae, while she's traveled to far away lands with her parents.

As I prepared for the family's return and the several days they would be staying with me, I had an idea.

The beloved stuffies should be as excited to see their owner as their owner would be to greet them after such a long absence. 

Obviously, these are both canines
Therefore, I created welcome home tags for each to wear. Here are only a few of the greetings that awaited. And, yes, Mae was thrilled.

 For someone who is determined not to have a stale blog, I'm not doing so well, huh. Well, now that spring has truly arrived in the Seattle area, and Bothell specifically, it's time to convey what makes it so special.

So here goes--an April update and small sample of our local beauty. Now is it any wonder I may have been a bit distracted? Sometimes writing something for a blog seems completely beside the point.
