Here's a few pictures of our trip. We finally made it to Tea Kettle Falls on Sunday. Such an amazing place!!
Ali is ready to go hiking w/ her adventure bandana on!
She was a wet little dog all weekend
A plant had grown thru this dead oak leaf.
Home sweet home (so glad we were not in a tent!)
Tea Kettle Falls from below. This area is just so beautiful! I love seeing God's majesty in places like this. The hike there was just gorgeous.
The look from on top
Ali was tuckered out after our hike. I think it was like 2 miles there & back and she treated the trail like an obstacle course just running all over the place like a mad woman. It's extremely entertaining to watch her on the trail...jumping over trees, and diving under branches, looping around anything & everything. Hysterical! She really wears herself out!
Sunday on our way home. She did not hardly move for the next 24 hours! LOL!

Here you can see how black the woods were from being burnt
She loves the water!
The more wet Ali got, the more the ash turned her black. So gross!
My dad the photographer
He took a shot of us
This is me hand feeding Ali her dinner. She gets so excited on the trail that it's the only way she will eat. Can you say spoiled???
Conked out! (before we even got there, though...lol!)
Us at dinner
This is Jeff accepting his "hockey puck". All the graduating seniors get a plastic paper weight that has their name engraved on it along with the Engineering department hog.

Starting on the trail
Family pic :-)
Ali loves the water. Has no problem crossing creeks or getting her feet (and body) wet. Which is good because Jeff and I spend a LOT of time in the water during the summer!
We stopped at Shores lake on our way home. It was sooo pretty!!
Crossing the dam
Tuckered out after a long day

Firs pic - sleeping on Jeff. She is very much a lap baby! Always has to be near you or on you. She gets severe separation anxiety. It's a little ridiculous.
Loving her new blanket!
Ali & Jeff runnin in the backyard. We were all so excited to have a warm sunny day on Saturday!!
She'll be too big to hold before too long! (notice my hair cut? It's short!)
Jeff worked so hard on building Ali's dog house. It is most definitely the coolest dog house in NWA! It is insulated, weather proofed, and extra large to allow plenty of room for her to grow. Here are a few pics
Ali helped supervise...
The finished product...
I chose the colors and painted her name and the dog house (well, most of it, but the trim). I went with chocolate brown & hot pink... it's a little silly, I know!! But I wanted it to be fun and girlie. I never splurged on cute, fun stuff with Nikita because I wasn't sure how long she would live (which is also silly). So I'm assuming Ali will be around many many years & we're going all out! LOL!
The door actually opens wider for the warm summer days when she needs a little more air circulation.
