Mitch welcomed Putter with a big smoochie kiss! He's lovin' the girls the older he gets! And he has such good taste!
With the hello's all taken care of, we all decided to move inside the barn into dad's workshop. It's a beautiful day but hot outside! We all exchanged gifts. Asta gave me an orange Wubba! Thank you so much! How did you know that Mitch destroyed mine already. No way is he getting this one! This one is actually for swimming and it has reflectors on it. It's very neat!
And she gave Mitch a green Cuz-like toy with an awesome voice! Mitch is going to drive us nuts with this thing at 7AM - you can bet on that!
We also got bags and boxes of all sorts of yummy treats!
Now to get down to some serious playing.
Mitch, Asta and Putter were all racing around like pups having the best time! One of the favorite toys to play keep-away with was the big lip fish that Stanley sent Mitch! Everybody just loves that toy! Putter has it at this point but not for long!
The hoomans all had lunch in the workshop. Mom made sandwiches and they had chips and cookies and they were just having the best old time getting to know each other. My dad's name is George and Asta's dad's name is George and both George's love woodworking so they connected immediately. Mom and Putter's mom and Asta's mom talked about blogging endlessly and yes, we all did have a moment of silence for Oscar. There were a couple of times that the moms got all choked up and teary-eyed.
After lunch there was more playtime until Asta's dad pretty much said that it was time for them to hit the road. This is just the start of their vacation! Mitch and Asta said their tearful good-bye's~
The hoomans hugged and thanked each other for all of us being able to get together for this brief and totally wonderful time! I sure hope we can do this again! It was a blast!
Thank you so much for going out of your way to visit us Asta! We are sure happy to have met you in person. You're one sweet girl. Mitch is nodding his head to the point that I think it might fall off! And Putter, thank you for visiting also! It's so special every time we get to visit with each other. We sure do have some fun adventures, don't we! I hope we have many, many more! Come back anytime Asta! We'd love to have you!
So until next time..............
Love ya lots,
