Wheelie Wednesday - Nantucket Vacation

Hi everyone! It's me, Autumn!
Mom has put me in charge of getting Maggie and Mitch packed for their Nantucket vacation! They leave the day after tomorrow!

The beach umbrella and the chairs are all ready to be packed into the trunk!

I bet you guys are really excited about feeling sand beneath your toes!
It's been a real battle deciding which toys to take! Mom says they can't take them all so we're narrowing it down and it hasn't been easy!
You guys sure have lots of toys!
Maggie and I have been deciding on which collars to bring! Mom says that Mitch can't wear his leather collar just in case he wants to swim so that one will be staying home. She bought him new Boomerang tags to keep him safe!
I think we've made wise collar decisions, don't you, Maggie?I'm really going to miss the family while they're gone but I do have plans to spend lots of time in the garden weeding and pruning and I'll also have lots of time for reading with a nice cup of tea! Does anyone care to join me?
Look what's blooming near the vege garden!
I had my doubts that we'd see sunflowers this year because it's been such a strange year!
Aren't they glorious!
See you in a couple of weeks!

Love, Autumn

It's never easy packing for a trip! We hope you have a REALLY great time! We wish we could go with you! Maybe...just MAYBE our mom will be done with her "project" by the time you get back so we can get back to blogging! Have a good time and stay safe!

Hi Autumn!

What a good Sister you are helping them to pack.
While they are away, I'm pop over the 'pond' and join you for tea - can we have icecream too?

Wheelie wishes & Foxy love

Sorry you have to watch the homestead. Will they be staying at the Obama's estate? Oh, wrong island. Well, we hope that M&M don't stuff themselves with too much Salt Water Taffy. We hope that they have fun and be safe.

Autumn - you are not going to the beach?????? How can you can go exploring all the wonderful gardens if you are not there? And what about the new plants you might see that would look right in your garden. I am sure if you have a word with the garden gnomes they would keep your garden safe. We were looking forward to seeing the adventures of "Autumn goes to Nantuckette"

Teesha and Bindie said...

Hi Autumn.
What, not taking you on Holiday. Shame on them, never mind. maybe you can use thats time to redesign the garden. have a peaceful time.

Mack said...

Wow - Yes, those sunflowers are pawsome!

I know you will miss M&M, Autumn, but you'll also enjoy your peace and quiet too!

BRUTUS said...

There are certainly some hard decisions to make - toys and collars!! I feel your pain!! My mom & dad just bought a wheelie house (wait till you see it in our post next week!!), so I'll get to go on trips now!! I'll take any advice you guys can give me on packing!

Unknown said...

You are going to have the best time. I can't decide which toys either.. but MV has lots of dog stores to buy more .. right?

Have a super time!

Packing for a trip is always exhausting. Mom says to pack what you think you need and then leave 1/2 of it at home.

We're glad you got the Boomerang tags. Piper's looks so stylish and we wonder when we girls are going to get one.

Have a great trip and if you get a minute, stop by our bloggie - we left an award for you.

Dexter said...

It will be nice to have some time alone to putter around the house.

We had those sunflowers one year and their stalks were like tree trunks!

Safe trip. Hope there aren't any hurry canes.


Astrid Keel said...

We hope M & M have a fabbers vacation and get all sandy and swim and eat tons of ice cream!!!

Clive said...

Autumn, we're so jealous of those sunflowers! Our summer has been so cool and wet that all the sunflowers we planted have only grown about 3ft and not flowered!!

Tell M&M to have a brillant holiday - our gang so wish they were back on Cape Cod and not here in the rain!!

Take care

Life With Dogs said...

I hope your vacation is perfect. We are hoping to make a run to the Cape, so don't be alarmed if you hear us barking at you from the mainland! :)

Two French Bulldogs said...

You sure did have some big decisions to make. Hope you have a great time. We'll miss your paw prints.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Our mom takes DAYS to pack for a trip.. she can never decide on what to bring.. and there are a lot of 'what if I need it'.. heehee.. so I can totally understand your dilemma!

Enjoy your vacation guys.. don't forget to take heaps of photos!

Stardust said...

Ok, I'll miss you. Have a good time! Good job Autumn. Think your pals got their right toys packed. Wish I could join you in the garden. Hugs.

Two Schnauzers from New England said...

Hi, Autumn -

What?!? You don't get to go on vacation with the family? We would love to have tea with you.

Mama says you are right about the sunflowers. Yours are really pretty but we have seen some not so healthy ones lately because of all of the rain.

Love -

Hershey and Kaci
