Field Trip

The Pickering family had an enjoyable weekend working a little and playing a little. Back to school for Pickles. Her class is going to the Virginia Marine Science Museum today. What a beautiful day for a field trip!


Pickles and Rufus are still asleep this Saturday morning but the day ahead brings big plans. Dad will till the garden with Rufus while Mom and Pickles plan what they will plant this year…spring is in full swing!

Back to school

Pickles and Rufus had a fun time with Nana and Papa this weekend. They always do! Now it is back to school for Pickles and nap time for Rufus as he sleeps by Mom while she works from home.

Nana and Papa

It’s Friday! Nana and Papa are visiting this weekend and that is always good news for everyone in the Pickering family. Nana always has a special treat hidden away in her suitcase for Rufus:)

Spring garden

Pickles and Rufus had a great time playing outside all day yesterday. Today, Mom and Pickles are going to the nursery to buy kale and swiss chard. It’s time to plant their spring garden. No digging in the garden Rufus!

Vet visit

Rufus had to go to the vet for his yearly shots today. He is not in a good mood but Pickles will be out of school soon and his day will brighten immediately!
