Working Hard or Hardly Working

Hi all, Bri here! 
Summer is back and in full swing with hot temperatures and the blazing sunshine. This can only mean one thing... garden time!! We are so fortunate here at Yesteryear Acres to have a bountiful garden. Mr. Yesteryear Acres works so hard each and every summer to get everything planted and growing. Last week we got all the seeds planted for beets, green beans, sweet corn, and zucchini. Well! Now those little seeds have sprouted! 

One whole row of onions! 

And a little baby tomato! My mouth is already watering. 

And who could forget the peppers! 

Most importantly.. Mr. Yesteryear Acres says if I work hard in the garden ALLL summer long, I will get to enjoy the harvest. Okay Mr. Yesteryear Acres! I did my part and took pictures of all your hard work! I can already taste the fresh sweet corn!

Tail Wagging Waiting

Back here at the Yesteryear Acres home front, all our doodle doggies are waiting with their tails wagging for the Super Zoo deliveries to arrive! They can't WAIT for Mr. and Mrs. Yesteryear Acres to come back home! We have been showing the doggies all the pictures and videos that our Mom and Dad have taken on their trip and MAN are our dogs PUMPED to open the suitcases and help 'test' some of the samples. They have started stalking the mail lady, UPS, and FedEx trucks that drive by. I think I am beginning to speak dog quite well now... I believe all their excited barks and yips are actually saying "HELLO! DO YOU HAVE THE BOXES FOR US?! EXCUSE ME HUMAN?!?! DO YOU HAVE THE MAGICAL BOXES OF HAPPINESS FOR US?!?" They say this to each truck that even slightly slows down on the road. I think the yard looks like it has been swept and dusted from all the happy duster like tails wagging on the ground. I told them they need to be patient! But BOY OH BOY are they going to love what is coming!
So here they are... Tail wagging waiting for all their goodies to arrive! 
Blue is wondering what goodies will be for her puppies due this summer
Maverick says "I can't wait to see what the new pond toys do!"

Sigh... Waiting is the hardest Part!

Don't Worry Doodles! We can't wait either!!!! Are they here yet!!?

Day 3 - Hurry!!!!

Today we hit the show floor running.  We had so much to do and limited time to get it done.  We decided the best strategy would be to divide and conquer.  Mr. Yesteryear Acres started at the 1000 block and I started at the 6000 block. One by one we re-visited our favorite vendors and finalized our orders. We cannot wait until all our Doggie Goodies start arriving at Yesteryear Acres!
Mr. Yesteryear Acres REALLY wants to bring home this dog tag engraving machine for all our puppy families to use! I am still not sure ....what if a new puppy family doesn't have a name picked out yet? It is really cool for those families who are ready for an engraved doggie tag though!
Just look at these Great Danes getting a drink from a dog bath system.  Just the right height for a drink! 
I know our Doodle puppies will love these! 
These caps turn any empty water bottle into a Squeaker Water Bottle!!!!  Then you can put the empty squeaker bottle into a toy! Cool! 
Of all our many many many toys at Yesteryear Acres - this one is the most coveted.  I can't wait until our doggies open a giant box full of nothing but squeaky basketballs! 
A mystery ring....can be used for a variety of games!
A puzzle for the doggies!  How do I get the food out?
Everyone loves squeaky doggies! 
The new fun toy for the pond!  It always floats upright! 
Doggies!!!!!  I bet you can't wait for us to come home! 
I love this clicker design!!!!  Can't wait to start puppy training with it!
Super Zoo 2018 - A Big Success!

Day 2 - Making Progress!

Today Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I covered a lot of ground and bought some terrific new things for our Doodle puppies and our Doggies.  It was fun finding new awesome goodies for them! We have one last day tomorrow to finish our list!
We found a cool machine that will do engraved doggie tags!
You never know what kind of dog you will run into at the Super Zoo!
Is it a Bird?  Is it a Plane? 
No! It's Super Zoo Dog!
Look! A Squeaker Toy that only DOGGIES can hear!!!!!
This little dragon wants to come home with us
Along with his stegosaurus friend 
Can't forget the poop bags!
Or the doodle puppy favorite - Crinkle Puppy!
We loved this dog trainer and their booth!

Did we even make a dent?

The first day of the big trade show is over and Mr. Yesteryear Acres and I are both wondering...did we even make a dent?  SO MANY things to see! So much to learn!  I think we only covered about 10% of the floor.  We will really have to pick up the pace tomorrow.  It is so hard when there are doggie goodies everywhere!
Good morning Las Vegas!
Let the shopping extravaganza begin!
Waiting for the doors to open! 
Pet happiness as far as you can see!  Wait for me Mr. Yesteryear Acres! 
This is why it takes us so long.  Must stop to see all the doggies!
Our Doodle Puppies will LOVE these 
and these 
and Mr. Elephant
There are so many cute things
Which ones should we bring home??????? 
Mr. Yesteryear Acres says, "ALL OF THEM!"

Best Days Feel Like This

Big events and holidays and major life celebrations are always something to remember but what I treasure most are all the days in between. Life's happiest and most precious moments can be found all around - each and every day.  Take a moment to pause and appreciate and be thankful....
A beautiful sun-filled day 
Spent with those I love! 
Watching the corn grow
Walking to our pond
Sweet Summer Time! 
Smiles all around 

 Tail Wagging Devotion
and best friend hugs 
and kisses! 

Best Days Feel Like This  
Country Living and
Grateful for every day!
