We’ve had another little trip this weekend to visit Mt. Townsend Creamery. I did not plan to post about it… but, oh my, Port Townsend is such a nice place, NOT to mention they’ve had Annual Rhododendron Festival this day ;o)

Pt Townsend05

The place was interesting. We tested cheeses and they even told to us how to make cheese.

Second Birthday ;)

Pixie 2

Our Pixie is turning 2 years today! She’s absolutely amazing, cute, lovely and sweet girl with such charming personality. Kristin got an idea to cook Pixie Birthday cake, based on doggie’s  favorite food and decorated with her favorite treats – let us see what we get ;o)

Pixie Bday

The only thing, she is overweighted already … for whole o.1 lbs – hehe, I hear your laugh ROFL!! We also got a good one when we were told in veterinary clinic that her normal weight should be 4 lbs. Funny, but her mom and dad were 3 lbs and 3.5 lbs respectively… an acceleration ;o)

P.S.: BTW, the second picture was taken by Kristin and we are both so happy with this cool shot!! Pixie doesn’t like to be model and it is really a big luck to catch her on photo.


Happy Thursday everyone!!
