Hanging out in Durham

tommycarrietownes  In October I stayed with with Townes and Carrie here in Durham.  I thought we’d be traveling to upstate New York, but our plans were changed into a “staycation”. Even though we were relaxing at home, Carrie and Townes sure do keep busy!

I went everywhere with Carrie and Townes.  I felt so special because they would fight over who got to hold me – ALL THE TIME.  I went to choir, soccer, and many other places with them.  When we were home we read books, played video games, and watched movies.

One of the first days we put up Halloween decorations.  I dressed up in a bat costume! tommylionsI liked the skeleton and creepy spider webs in their windows the best.

Townes and Carrie played a game at a friend’s house with monsters in it called Dungeons and Dragons.  I just watched, but if I ever get to play I would like to be Tomolot, the half moose, half elf spearman.

(But no other moose!?) The lions we’re scary, but the lemurs we’re so cute I wanted to take one home with me.  I was excited to learn how big giraffes were.  I loved looking at the cool animal skulls, too.

A Wedding in Florida

Hello everyone! floridaI just got back from a visit to Florida with my friend, Savanna. We had such a great time, but boy, did we drive a lot! We drove 16 hours to get there and 13 hour on the way back. Phew! I sure have spent a lot of time in cars these past few months. 🙂 We drove to Florida so Savanna could be in her aunt’s wedding. Yay! I asked Savanna to write a story about our adventure, so check it out!


Tommy and I went to a wedding. Tommy never came out of the car because he does not like weddings! The wedding was in Florida. Tommy gets car sick, so he had a hard time going all the way to Florida.
