Peace and Quiet

Addie's favorite place is wherever Julien is. 
Add in a paw to hold and there is a rare peace that creeps into each corner of my house. 


Crazy cat stayed this way for over half an hour.



It is not often that we have these kind of moments, but when we do, I cherish every single second.

Hoover East Ballpark - All Inclusive Playground

We visited the brand new all inclusive playground at Hoover East ballpark today and had the best time!

The playground is probably the most "Addie friendly" playground we have ever visited. 

The ground was covered in one solid surface which meant I didn't have to worry about Addie tripping and falling while walking from area to area. 

Other than keeping her away from the swings while in motion and the few open areas on the playground equipment, the rest she was able to maneuver around with limited concerns. 

Oh, the swings - how we love them so!!!!

Addie was safe and snug and never got scared - she loved them too!!!


She was able to climb onto and out of this - and Chris and I could even sit with her to help!


The slides were sturdy and safe and just the right height for Addie to gain her footing at the bottom. 



Pull ups - she tried and tried. 


Shaded areas of the playground gave much needed relief from the glaring sun. 


Umm, nope. 
Maybe she will give it a try next time. 


Addie explored every inch of the playground and we left only after SHE said she was ready. 

This park makes our top three list of favorite parks in central Alabama.

Way to go Hoover!

Sunshine and Car Rides

We are taking full advantage of the intermittent beautiful weather days and getting out as much as possible.

Although there were no fish, ducks or even turtles, Addie was insistent on feeding them - and so we did.


After feeding the water, we walked over to the park and spent an abundant amount of time pushing the baby on the swing.
It was a great opportunity for me to work on coordination with Addie, and as always, she did a great job!


We then went back home in order to retrieve Rudy and take him on his first ride in his new carrier.  

Oh yes, I caught Addie trying to unzip the carrier.
Rotten little girl just wanted to "hold him".  


Rudy loves his new carrier!
The first night we received it, I got him and put him in it in the living room.
Silly cat refused to get out of the carrier and even slept in it for several hours.
He's a very unique kitty.
