Pound Ridge, NY- Memorial Day Weekend 2010

3 Comments

We decided to head to Pound Ridge this weekend to see Mom and Dad #2!  It was a blast like always!  We all (Oscar, Ian and myself) LOVE to escape the city to the beautiful suburbs of Westchester County, NY!

Excuse the blur and evening pic, but this is our gorgeous view when we pull up to the MIL/FIL house!

Mm MOM 2 and DAD 2 (plus LOLA-dog) live in a beautiful house in Pound Ridge, New York.  We just LOVE it there.  Our getaways there include MUCH outdoor time in their spacious and lush yard and pool area…

While the doggies LOVE the pool…

Uhhhh....OK, so maybe Lola likes the pool a bit more than Oscar... 🙂

The adults like to chill on the deck…

Being in NY definitely brings the outdoorsy-ness out in ALL of us.

We hiked in the local nature preserve and at a beautiful nearby ravine.  It was awesome.  BUT, of course I got a lil shoppy-shoppy in.  I purchased some adorable digs for our trip to Europe this summer (more on that to come) along with a VERY European hat and pair of Raybans LOL.

C'est la Vie!

Overall, a great time with the MIL and FIL.  We were fed great food- thanks Dad 2 for the amazing grilled steak-and saw a FANTASTIC movie—The Blind Side-

PS:  LOVED it!  Did you see the Blind Side?  Did you love it as much as I did?!?!?

A Walk in the Park

Leave a comment

Hi all!  So,  I feel like I mention walking in the park with Luxy and Stephie a lot, but don’t elaborate much.  Well, today’s the day… recapping a walk in the park!

Steph and Lux

Poor Stephie needs to walk Luxy girl every day.  Luxy is a very large (130 pounds) mastif and is as cute as can be.  BUT, she certainly needs a lot of exercize.  Sometimes I volunteer to meet these two lovely ladies in the Norristown Farm Park for a walk.  The farm park is very large and has a few streams flowing throughout.  There are trails and many wildlife to be seen. It is like a little nature preserve in the middle of N-Town 🙂

Ya know, everything was going soooo well…I was in SUCH a lovey mood…even hugging trees!

SUCH a hippie~!

…UNTIL Luxy and I got a LITTLE too lovey.  She headbutted and gave me a bloody nose an a fat lip!  Let’s assess the damage…

...and for a close-up

So…we got a lil’ rowdy.  BUT, all’s well that ends well- my fat lip deflated as the night went on, so no worries.  Husband met me out out Steph’s and we were off…to New York!  Stay tuned for a post on those shenanigans!  Toodles!
