Tail wags, all. It's me - Storm. Before I turn today's post over to Ammy, I just want to wish my little sister a VERY happy birthday today on behalf of me and the boys! That's right, our sweet, little redhead was born 10 years ago today! On Groundhog Day! Quite apropos for our resident meteorologist, wouldn't you say? To read more about Groundhog Day and Ammy, please see this link. It explains a lot. OK - over to Ams; Storm out.
Hi everypuppy and everykitty! It's me, Ammy! Thank roo very much to Stormy and my brothers for the birthday wishes! Both Storm and Davy have already tested being 10 and said it's really fun, so I'm looking forward to this!
It was a funny weather day on Friday; the temps tried to hover around 50, but we had 20-30 mile an hour very cold winds, so the temperatures kept going up and down. It was very nice. Zim and I decided we should take a walk to CiCo Park. It's only about a mile from Ao4 HQs to CiCo and we go there a lot. This time we got to walk WAY around it and through it and everything - we walked for about an hour and a half and had a lot of fun!
Here we are in one of the pavillions they use for all kinds of things. I like to look for pigeons in there; sadly, there were none that day.

Zimmie hopped up on some benches and did poses in his very cool Steelers bandana.

We wove around a bit on some cool paths...
...then got to the far side of the park. We headed down the main path ... and there it was!
The Trippy-Trap Bridge
When I was a little girl, I was a little bit afraid of crossing the Trippy-Trap Bridge. I heard there were big, gruff billy goats that lived under there. Or hung out there. Or maybe something about a troll. I don't know... but I didn't like the Trippy-Trap Bridge. My daddy taught me there's nothing to be afraid of at all, so now I go over it with no fear!
Let's go, Zim!
Shouldn't we check the AO for billy goats or trolls or something?
Nope! We're good. I don't believe in that stuff anymore!
I assured him there was no need, we continued on across, then eventually headed home. It was a great trip to the park!
You were real brave back at the Trippy-Trap Bridge, Am!
I hope you enjoyed coming with us to the park!
