Our beautiful daughter-in-law, Sammy has been on a short jaunt with her husband, The Writer, to North Carolina. One of my favorite states! While they have been gone their "child", Stanley The Greyhound, has once again been
sleeping on our bed and couches staying with us.
I think he enjoys being part of a pack while he is with us as he seems to be enthusiastic about everything while he is here.
We took "the pack" to a nearby park this past week for a walk. The Maven and I discovered this little gem that we call "The Rose Garden" through YELP, of all things, when we were looking for somewhere different to walk the Bostons.
Watch out kid! They may be small, but...
It is a pretty oasis in the middle of Mission Hills in The San Fernando Valley - just 10 minutes from our house! Orlando Grandma may recognize the area somewhat since it is directly across the street from the Mission we visited during her stay with us.
Good dogs making a new friend afterall
A lovely tree-lined walk leads to "The Rose Garden" and is quite refreshing on sunny, warm days.
I love this arbor!
And of course, the roses...
Which way should I go?
Lots of pretty archways, fountains and benches.
No swimming, Stan!
Today is our lovely Sammy's birthday, so Stanley and I dedicate this post to her. The Maven and I are driving "over the hill" into the city to take Stan home to see his mom (and dad) and then go somewhere for lunch to celebrate her birthday.
Happy birthday Sammy, from your WHOLE family!
