Serene Scenery Sunday

Hello, everyone!  It's me, Cammie, here with Serene Scenery Sunday.  Today, after our walk and after we helped with the tomatoes, Mom wanted to get some shots of Maggie and me in the backyard.  It was nice and shady and cool back there - so very peaceful!  I thought I'd share those photos with you!

Here we are, posing on the second tier:

"This 'sit and wait' thing is sooooo hard, Cam!  And BORING!"
"I know, Peeps.  Pay Mom back by not looking at her."

You can see some of the Purple Emperor Sedum and Blue Oat grasses behind us!

Mom wanted to work on Maggie's "sit and wait" thing, so she backed up and shot this:

"Yeah, yeah.  'Sit and wait', blah, blah, blah."
"Wait.  I think she has treats!"

There is nothing wrong with being food motivated!!!  Nothing!

We moved up to where the first and second tiers intersect and Mom asked us to pose. Maggie jumped up on the retaining wall - she likes doing that!

"Hi, Mom!"
"Whatever.  I smell food!"

I'm pretty sure the neighbors were cooking breakfast!

Here I am, by some of the other sedum and some bigger Oat Grasses:

Me.  Cammie. 

Maggie was starting to get bored, so it took a minute for her to get into place. Here we are together:

"Good girl, Mags."
"Thanks, Ca---oooh!  Do you smell that?"

Apparently, the neighbors on both sides were cooking breakfast!

Mom was so pleased with how cooperative we were that she unhooked my leash, put Maggie on the really long one - then she let us ZOOM!

"Wheeee!  Chase me, Cam!  Chase me!"
"I'm going to get you, Mags!!!"

And ZOOM:

"Zzzooooom!"
"Here I come, Mags!"

And ZOOM some more!

"Wait!  I'll chase you now!"
"OK!  Let's GO!"

Mom apologizes for the poor quality of the chase scenes; all she had on her was her iPhone!

We tossed some wrestling in there:

"Gotcha, Cam!  Hi, Mom!"

The little one has some amazing moves!

"Watch my over-the-back flip!"
"Impressive, Mags!"

After a good, long play session, we ran up and played on the lower deck for a while - then made our way upstairs to the door, where we did one more pose for Mom.

"Time for a water break!"
"That was fun, Cammie!  Let's play some more!"

Mom agreed with me that it was time for a water break, so we headed inside. Oddly enough, while I got a nice, long drink, Maggie did zoomies through the living room, dining room, and kitchen! She's tired as can be now, and Mom said that makes her feel nice and serene. Me, too!

I hope all of you have a wonderfully serene Sunday!

Cammie!

  4. Well, we think you BOTH have some pretty good moves - Ciara runs like that too - one big blur. Lightning runs like a race horse - three or four gallops and he is across the whole yard.

    Your yard is so pretty - sighs from the Momster.
