The "Hurrah!" comes because I didn't have to write myself, but instead blatantly cribbed it from my sister Susan's blog account of her family's visit with us last weekend: Did you know Detroit is an excellent place to vacation? You can go there to see all sorts of other cool photos of last weekend's family hi-jinks.
But first, a beagle haiku by Susan Riordan:
Beagle sniffs the air.
Is that a rabbit I smell?
Pesky leash holds me.

First a morning photo to cleanse the palate:
Atlee and Lexi fishing.
And now, off to the zoo!
And now, some less courteous animals!
As we were getting ready to go, the giant anteater came over to say goodbye to me and Malcolm. Here's an action series. Or, at least as close as you can get to an action series with the giant anteater when an anthill isn't involved:
Fun in the lake while we got dinner ready.
We all hope you enjoyed the pictures and your tour through the virtual visit!

We start today's recap with Henry, Atlee, and Monique on a beagle-walking expedition. Oddly, we don't see Katie the Beagle in any of these photos. So, to keep our Internet-leading Katie the Beagle quotient high, we start with a beagle haiku.
If a full beagle
Was walked, but not photographed
Did she really poop?
A swan nesting in the wetland.
A heron wading in the weeds.
Sunday was no day of rest. After a few rain showers cleared through, we put everybody to work.
Greeley digging a hole for the new canoe stand. Yes, indeed, Rich was at it again making more improvements around our house, this time using child labor.
Henry inspects the situation...
We put Arsen to work, too, weeding the hostas.
Naturally, a well-oiled machine like this needs proper management. Fortunately, I was equal to the task!
We ended the day with pizza and a movie, "Flash Gordon" (1980). Tomorrow's plan? We're going to the zoo. Come back to see what ensues: same Patio-Time, same Patio-channel!
