    Glad you had such nice weather for hiking. We had a gorgeous weekend, too – 70+ in early March in Kansas is always welcome!!!
    Sounds like Bella won’t have to be in the crate much longer!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yep I think the time has come!

    Gah, love your temps! We’ll get close to 50 degrees every day this week, so I am hoping that it will melt all our ugly snow. Love your hike – and that plate of Mexican food you had? I could eat that every day and never get sick of it – I actually have radish for my taco at lunch today – love the added crunch!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      We honestly don’t eat radishes very often (Michael gets heart burn from them). I enjoyed them a lot though so I think I’ll get some and add them to my tacos and salads. You are right, it’s a nice crunch!

    That is some beautiful hiking! Really beautiful! Cracks me up that your husband was making you walk a lot faster, sometimes my husband does the same thing to me on hikes. It was the perfect weather where I lived for hiking as well. Lots of sunshine.

    I love that Bella can be left unattended now. She is turning into such a great dog (not that she wasn’t to begin with) and she always looks like she is so happy!!

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Usually we’re the same pace, sometimes I’m faster than he is but he’s also taller than me. I couldn’t believe he was speeding up! I thought I was dying. LOL

      Bella is doing SO GREAT. She’s definitely growing up. I am so happy with her and she’s so well behaved. Love it!

    What a gorgeous day. I was happy to hit 44 degrees yesterday LOL! We have such a long way to go before seeing the ground.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Oh no!!! I hope you guys see the ground soon. LOL

    Once again your photos are gorgeous !! Hooray for Bella – she is such a cute dog. It seems like the hike just wore her out. What a great way to exercise. We are having 87* weather here in Orlando. I feel summer right around the corner. It is so hot here the a/c is on.

    you SHOULD be so so so proud.
    and my GOLDENDOODLE agrees.

    Wow what a lovely weekend, I enjoyed looking at all the photo’s so much. We had a very good weekend too and Bella got to go on a hike with me on Saturday and we went to a park on Sunday. She was really exhausted by Sunday night LOL.

    I love the area where you live, such great possibilities for hikes.

    I think Bella is ready to stay out of her crate when you leave the house. She knows you come back and that she isn’t allowed to destroy anything. She’s a super cute dog.

    1. Lisa Eirene

      Yep I think Bella is ready!
