Now, as if I haven't had the best weekend ever already, this morning the mom, dad and I went to where dad works in Omaha which is called "the campus". It is very pretty, surrounded by big shady trees and there is a lake with lots of ducks and geese and swans and some of the BIGGEST fish ever!!!!! We have so many photos to share but we are going to have to spread them out over a few days.

Here is a picture of me in front of the building where my dad works when he is in town. And then here is dad and I as we walk down to the lake that is just behind the building he works in. Isn't it

the coolest that my dad has his own park to walk in whenever he wants to. We walked right around the outside of the lake until we came to the War Memorial and dad was not happy that they not lowered the flags to half mast. These is a wonderful bronze sculpture called 'homecoming'. We stopped and gave silent thanks to all the brave men and women (and doggies too) to have fought to keep us all safe. And then lastly you can see a picture of downtown Omaha. Normally my mom doesn't like to go down town as she doesn't like the traffic but it was almost empty today because of the holiday and is was just perfect. We also met some very nice people who said I was very 'regal' looking. I am not sure what they meant but I guess the bath I had yesterday must have impressed them - it sure didn't impress me !!!!

Now I know some of think I exaggerate occasionally - but check out this guy! Mom says this is a cat fish and it was about four foot long - there was no way I was going to chase this kitty-fish!!!! And there was lots of them of the lake this size!!


  1. Wow! What a great day you had! Wasn't the weekend just wonderful! I'd stay away from catfish that big too!

  2. Wow, that's awesome that your Dad has his own park to walk in! Our Dad has to get in the car first and drive to where he likes to walk... he calls it the 'big outdoors'. Thank you for the prize, we'll email you our address :)
    Hugs, Josh and Jessie

  3. Giant Kitty Cat fish and Toad-o-sauruses. What kind of place is Omaha?

    Glad you enjoyed your walk in the park.

    Essex & Deacon

    I would stay away from that fishy too!

  5. Congratulations to all your pee-mail winners!

    Very nice way to spend Memorial Day!

  6. What a very nice visit to your Dad's work. I like the memorial and I glad you took the time to do rememberings...

    As for that Catfish, that look scary. You sure it not really a monster, the lock ness monster maybe? I off to go ask Martha and Bailey, cos they be wise-ish.
    ~lickies, Ludo.

    Peeess! Woohoo!

  7. OMG, that looks like a killer catfish!
    We can't believe we won! We totally screwed up on your contest because our stoopid mom misinterpreted the whole thing and we ended up winning! Thank you so very much! We are super psyched!

    Love ya lots,
    Maggie and Mitch

  8. We came to check out that thing in the water - Ludo told us to check it out!
    Our advice would be dont go near it but it is not the Loch Ness Monster!
    Really nice to meet you and visit your blog.
    Martha & Bailey xx
