Travel Tuesday on Monday!

Welcome to Travel Tuesday!!! This week I want to tell you more about my "14 States in 10 Days" adventure with Mama!



Today it is all about Day 4, where we drove from Cheyenne, WY all the way across Nebraska to Omaha!! This was actually the shortest day of our trip!



OMD Mama.....why must we leave so very early in the morning??
(Mama said something about me being a very good watchdog and yelping my most shrill bark when any person walked by the hotel room door making it a bit hard to sleep.)


Did you know the MOON is still out??




Again, I think she just likes taking pictures of the sunrise!!!




Anyways...after a VERY short walkie we hit I-80!!




Since our early morning walkie was short, Mama made sure we took extra long rest stops. The rest stops all through Nebraska were very pretty and probably some of the cleanest and well maintained of the whole trip!!



We were so very lucky and had lots of sunshine and perfect temperatures! Here I am soaking up some sun!!




We were glad it wasn't too warm...'cause then these guys might have been out!



Don't worry, I told Mama we should stay on the trails and keep our noses and eyes alert! No silly snakes were sighted!!



At one of the rest stops we saw lots of these pretty yellow birdies..Mama says they are about as big as Robins....do any of you all from the Midwest know what kind of birdies these may be???




I was headed over to take a look when.....




....This happened....
MOTHER!!!! You pick the WORST time for ussies!!




Mama made it up to me with a picnic lunch!!!
It was a bit windy, but there were squirrels to spy and collect intel on and the breeze was warm!




Just a little bit after lunchtime....we were in Omaha!!!!




You know Mama...I see your wallet still has green papers in it, and look what is over across the street. Maybe a bit of shopping is in order???? We could buy pressies for the Boyz.....





Teeheehee...Mama's are so easy sometimes! After we ate some dinner, Mama took me over and we bought some bones that I didn't like so we brought them home for the Boyz!



All that shopping, along with the big walkie we took around the Petsmart shopping center,  wore me out....plus Mama said something about being up since before dawn....so after some relaxing and light tuggy play we both conked out!!


We hope you enjoyed Day 4 of our journey. Make sure to join us next Tuesday for Day 5 when we travel through the infamous states of Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota and North Dakota!!



...and don't forget tomorrow is the Big Soccer Game where the Blogville Barkers take on the Slayers!! 

We will be hosting the After Game BBQ. You can catch the game over at Murphy & Stanley's and Easy's places. 
Sasha will have her food truck at the stadium and Ruby will be serving up her famous Rubyritas!!

There will be a hop set up so you won't miss any of the action!!

OMD you had me all confused with travel Tuesday on Monday(snickers). I don't know about those snakes, I am glad you didn't see any, but that sure was a pretty bird. I love picnics and I am glad you got to have one with your Mama and then do some shopping. It was nice of you to think of your brothers. I will see you at the game and at the party

We have gotten used to hotels now and rarely bark unless we hear another dog barking. My mom doesn't appreciate our watch dog help early in the morning or late at night either.
