Photo Finish Friday

Hello, everyone. It's me, Cammie. Yesterday, Zim told you about us taking a road trip on Wednesday. It was just a practice run to see how we'd all do in the vehicle together. As he said, we all did great - so we got to go again yesterday!!!  This time, though, we went to an incredible place!!!  I thought I'd share the best of the photos Mom took with you for Photo Finish Friday!

Zim had told me about this beautiful place he gets to go to sometimes where you can hike and hike and hike and see for miles and smell EVERYTHING in the entire state of Kansas and parts of Nebraska and oh, my goodness!  That's where we went!!!  Let me tell you all about it...

 We got into the RAV4 and Zim jumped right into the front passenger's seat!

"Sorry, Cam.  I called 'shotgun' yesterday."

That just did NOT seem fair!

"I get 'shotgun' next time!!!"

Zim claimed there is some rule about not being able to call "shotgun" until the next outing has been announced. Hmm.

"You wouldn't be trying to pull the Sibe fluff over my eyes, would you?"

I asked to see it written in the rule book. I mean, I AM from Missouri, the Show Me state! I think it's only fitting that he show me! He said he'd get right on it. Sometime. Hmm.

Anyway, I forgot all about that soon enough.  Dad parked the vehicle, then Mom jumped out and led me out by my leash.  We stepped right into that magical place Zim had described!

"Zimmie, it's everything you said it would be!!!"

We were at The Top of the World -- and it truly felt like we WERE on top of the world!  We walked and walked, and I think I did smell all the way to Nebraska!  When we got to this one cliff, Dad held our leashes and Mom went over the cliff a tad so she could get some pictures of Zim and me.

Zimmie and me!

"Did I tell you this place is great or what?!?  Take in those smells, Cam!"
"I love it here, Zimmie!"

Mom thanked us for not looking at the camera.  I think I detected a bit of sarcasm, but I'm not sure.  Zim and I were enjoying all the sights and sounds and smells too much.

We walked down a gravel road next; Mom took this artsy shot of Dad and Zim:


I like the purple wildflowers!!!

Zim waited for us to catch up with him and Dad:

"Let's wait for the girls, Dad!"

We struck some poses down where the road ends. Here's Zim:

My brother, Zim.  AKA Zimmle Mawson, Explorer Pup!

And here's ME!

Me.  Cammie.  D'Azul's Girl From Ipanema!

(We were safely home and all settled in before that storm hit, in case anyone noticed the awesome sky!)

We had a GREAT time at the Top of the World!  It was everything Zim said it would be - and more!  (Mom brought TREATS with her!)

Thanks for coming with us!  Happy Friday!
