A few days ago I heard the ZH say it was "spring break" week.  I really didn't know what that meant, at least not at first.  Now I know!  It meant that all three grandbeans would be here for a few days.  That's a "no win" situation for me.  It gets noisy and messy, chaotic and crazy.  I can't even privately use my litter box!  Treats, well, they seem to forget about giving me my usual treats.  Naps?  All my favorite napping spots get taken over by these little people.  The solution: hide, hide again, and hide yet again.  So, I spent most of my time under the bed or in the back corner of the ZH's closet (which had a lot of sneeze inducing dust bunnies).  I did come out once in awhile to do some fun things with everyone... see... 
 The house where I live has got trees 'n' woods all around it. 
One time the big grandbeans wanted to explore in the woods.  I went along. 
 It was really hot, like 85-degrees.  They had to cover-up so
they wouldn't get bug bites and tree-scratches.  My fur covered me up!
 Another time we went to a park nearby. 
The big grandbeans were on big swings and slides. 
But the little baby swings were just right for me and the littlest bean.
 At another park down by the river, the littlest bean was running around a lot,
while I just rested on the warm pavement and watched the river roll by.
 It was a good thing the ZH took the big stroller to the village. 
It had plenty of room for me to ride along.
We went to a different park.  It had lakes and fountains and lots of playground stuff
for the beans.  The ZH caught me strolling down to the lakefront
(you know, I do love water) and she screamed at me,
"ZOEY, outta there now -- that's a gator, there!"  Yes, friends,
that little black line you see, that really is an alligator. 
We went home right away!  End of spring break.
After all this, I really, really need an easy Sunday...
and an easy Monday, Tuesday, etc., etc.


  1. Bet the ZH needed an easy Sunday too.

  2. Sounds as though a lot of fun was had by all. That is realy good and just what the doctor ordered. Glad you had fun. Dont hide away too much because hanging out with the beans can be realy good. Hugs GJ xx

  3. Well since our boy beans are grown we loves it when they are on Spring Break cause we get extra pets and treats. They both are back in school this week.

    Looks like you had a Big Adventure with the Grandbeans, glad the alligator didn't get you.

  4. Spring break looks like bunches of fun! Better stay away from those gators - I hear there are a lot of them in Florida - especially the orange and blue ones. MOL

  5. Mom says she is pretty sure that ZH needed some easy time too - but the grandbeans had lots of fun. How lucky for you that you were able to tag along:) Just be sure to listen to ZH when she gives those very wise warnings.

    Have a wonderful, easy Sunday.
