Early Birds at the BAR OR Day Zero

Before we start today's post, we wanted to let everyone know about an event Christmas over at Paw Province is 
hosting for Bailey at Sheltie Times, who had to go to the Rainbow Bridge last week.
Just post a picture of you taking a nap in Bailey's honor on Monday!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Now....Today we are going to start telling you about our adventures at the BAR!

Don't worry, we will tell you all about the Road Trip part of our trip in a Travel Tuesday series starting in a week or two!

We didn't EVER think we were going to get to Indiana...
Between Mama stopping to take pictures and us stopping
to take walks it seemed we were on the road for 870 days!!



Finally, after five sleeps in hotel rooms, INDIANA!!! 
We finally made it to the hotel and guess what?? We saw Madi's Mama and Daddy right after we checked in!!



Now Mama and I, being of a certain age, were ready to take a nap when we got to our room. But Arty was soooo excited, so we decided to go for a ride and make sure we could find our way to the park where the BAR was held!



The park is in a beautiful area in Brown County, Indiana, and it took about 20 minutes from the hotel to the park!



Mama stopped so she could take a picture of the Covered Bridge
at the North Entrance of the Park
(Frankie and Ernie, cover your Mama's eyes!)



  
When we came back to the hotel, we met up with Madi's Mama, Oreo and his Mama and YAM Aunty for a little while. While we were in the lobby talking, Casey and Jessie's Mama checked in!!
We all agreed to meet a bit later outside to watch the sun go down!



We decided to go for a nice long walkie in the big field behind the hotel!



A pup could walk for miles back there!!





I spent some time on YAM Aunty's lap while Mama gibby gabbed for awhile and then we headed back to our room, put on our jammies and....



fell fast asleep!!
It was a great "Pre-BAR" afternoon and evening!!

Stay tuned tomorrow for Friday at the BAR!
