Packing for Nantucket

We leave first thing tomorrow morning at 4AM to head to Hyannis to catch the ferry to Nantucket! We are all super psyched! We can't wait!

Mom has been gathering stuff and piling it in our dining room so she can then move it all to the trunk of the car later today!


We girls are the packers and mom told me to choose toys that Mitch and I would like to take with us! Okay - I can do that! Notice my Nantucket collar! I'm ready to roll!


We definitely need these mom! Maybe we can chew them on the ferry for the ride over!

The beach umbrella is in A-ok shape, mom! It's ready for loading!

Before we go I have to tell you about the new koiMaggie! Can you see that she's a Red Hatter just like I am! The first koiMaggie got eaten by a nasty Kingfisher birdie so I'm hoping that this won't happen again! I hope her pretty red hat protects her forever! Thank you, Butchy and Snickers!

And we also have to tell you that we won a silver medal in the team synchronized sleeping event! OMG, our second medal! This is so exciting to both of us!



Mitch and I rarely sleep together in the house! It's usually in the back seat of dad's truck and it's because stingy Mitch won't move over and share some room with me! I get tired too and I like nappies just as much as he does but he could care less so I plop on top of him!

We also have to tell you about our latest award from Eduardo! This is what he wrote about us: "Maggie & Mitch were the first dogs to comment on my blog & they are there at every single blog, I think they are at every body's blog! I stop at a random blog that seems to have just started & there they are! Maggie & Mitch enjoy making everybody in the blogging world feel like you can come here & blog! That this can be your outlet! That they are here to read your thoughts even if no one else does. That makes me want to go find other blogs that haven't found friends yet and welcome them to the blogging world. Maggie & Mitch thank you for making me feel welcome! Thank you for letting everybody know, it's nice to be nice!"

Is that just about the sweetest thing you ever read?! Thank you so much, Eduardo! We will display your award with pride! You are the sweetest friend any doggie can ever have!


We also have to tell you that dad is taking his laptop to Nantucket and our sissy has downloaded a dialer on there so that hopefully we'll have dial-up on the Island. We can't promise anything until we give it a go but we're hoping that it works so that we can keep in touch! We have no clue how blogging works with dial-up so this will be something new for us!

We're hoping to read some of your blogs while we're on vacation and we'll post if we can! We'll miss you all LOTS!

See you all in September!

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Hi, Maggie and Mitch -

Have a great vacation! Mama, Papa and I (Hershey) will be going to the Cape on Labor Day weekend. Mama's aunt is having a birthday (her 80th).

Love -

Hershey and Kaci

P.S. Dial up can be slow sometimes - just another frustrating thing to deal with when you do computer work.

Oops! We forgot to congratulate you on your award. Mama is having all sorts of brain burps this morning.

Me and Teka are very Jelly (to quote Asta NY) of your trip to Nan Tucker. We have never met her, but we have heard lots of good things.

Muzzer had dial up when she went to PHX a couple weeks ago. She says..."save the pictures, they take forever," But admits that you can read blogs pretty good.

Hi M&M!

I howled for you while your ferry passed by Martha's Vineyard. Didja hear me???

Have fun in the waves. They are really fun to chase and nip at. I've got a beach umbrella, too, and also a little 3 sided tent for when I need to take a beach nappy.

Hey, doesn't it make you feel VERY IMPORTANT to have your own luggage when you go on family trips?

Your pal,
Fenway

PS: Eduardo said the truth about you two. You are GREAT bloggers & friends!

Booker the Treeing Walker said...

We bet you are having a lovely vacation! Enjoy!

Maggsie!

Do you clean houses too?! Cuz, if you do, you've got to come help us dig out of all the junk my girl has around here! We'll let you pack it up and send it away... so long as it goes away!

I bet Nantucket will be SO HAPPY to see you pups! I bet some people wait all summer just to see you guys coming. Nantucket to me means daily ice cream runs, walks on the beach, and LOTS of admAire-ration!

Have a blast guys! I'll miss you!

Goober love & smooches,

Rudy said...

I'm so sad 'cause Mom never gets to go to the beach and she's so unhappy this time of year 'cause everybody goes...
I'm afraid if she ever does get to go, she won't come back and then what would we do???

Rudy

Hana said...

I forgot to mention to you that when my Mom made the lemon oat bars, she also added sliced almonds and sunflower seeds to the topping!

Hi Maggie and Mitch,
