Steve has been working around the clock lately, in town and out of town. He was thankfully able to take the 4th of July off, so we packed up the trailer and headed out to our newly acquired property. We were looking forward to getting away from Anchorage and all the Pongo-frightening, firework mayhem that comes with the 4th of July.
The day before we headed up, we had our driveway improved: cleared of brush, leveled and a circular drive built around the dry cabin for easy in and out of the trailer. There’s a lot of dirt right now but that just means more planting fun!
What is so nice about spending time at the property is Pongo gets to romp and roam (within eye-sight). He loves it and all the ball playing that comes with having more space.
What we weren’t expecting though was the HEAT. I LOVE the heat but unfortunately, my boys don’t tolerate it very well.
There was a lot of shade seeking…
…and trips to the creek to cool off.
We had an amazing time, and Pongo and I feel very fortunate to have some Papa time before he gets really busy again!
