I Used a Towel!

Summer's hot humid weather has descended upon us and it is a blistering sticky mess outside. What's a Doodle to do?
Go to the pond of course!!!!!
Just dive right in 
and swim and swim and swim 
and swim some more! 
Now that I am soaking wet 
I know the perfect spot to dry off
Heh Heh Heh
What? I used a towel!

Three Little Puppies

Three Little Puppies went out to play 
They played follow the leader 
Freeze Tag 
Red Light Green Light 
and Ready or Not.... 
here we come! 
Nothing is better than being a puppy 
So many things to explore 
And it is always fun getting there! 
But eventually three little puppies........
got very sleepy
and said
We are ready for our nap 
But we will be ready again when we wake up!

A Peach of A Summer Sandwich

Mr. Yesteryear Acres has been diligently landscaping and trimming and raking and mowing. He has been working every night until dark and we have been eating dinner quite late.  Last night he wondered
"What's for dinner?"
I didn't have the heart to tell him that I had not made dinner yet and I didn't even know what I was going to make.  It was time to come up with something fast and easy! 
Let's see.  We have fresh picked peaches...... 
Time to make a creative summer sandwich! 
I made a fresh loaf of buttermilk bread earlier that day.  I spread winter white honey on one piece and a french whole grain mustard on the other. I layered some thinly sliced genoa hard salami and gouda cheese and topped it with fresh sliced peaches.  
A Peach of a Summer Sandwich! 
I have to say ... DELICIOUS! 
This will go down as a new summer favorite!

The Growing Tails of Ernie McDoodle: Camp Yesteryear Acres

This week has been so much fun for Ernie McDoodle! Ernie's brother Bailey has been staying with us while his Furever Family is away on vacation. Always Amelia and Camp Yesteryear Acres has been in full swing! Ernie has been showing Bailey everything, but their favorite activity is.... You guessed it, playing in the pond! 
Brothers = Instant best friends! Ernie weighs 88lbs and Bailey weighs 68lbs. They are the biggest lap full of love!

"This is where we wait until Amelia says we can come outside and play while she works"

Say 'Cheese' Bailey! Your family misses you and wants to see your adorable face!

Good Boy! Alright Come on Bailey! Let's go on an adventure!


"Oh I just love to play in the water!"

"I love to swim just like Ernie!"

"Catch me if you can!"

"Tag you're it!"

"I am so fast! I must be...."


Camp Yesteryear Acres is the best!!!

I am so happy Bailey's family brought him back again for another Always Amelia and Camp Yesteryear Acres Adventure!

Grounds Crew

Another nice day of no rain here at Yesteryear Acres had the grounds crew busy at work getting the landscaping done.
Perfect circles
By the way Mr. Yesteryear Acres looks, you probably think he did all the work. 
Or perhaps it was team work, supervised by Olive.
Nope! It was the newest member of the landscape team. Hank!
"I did a doggone good job if I do say so myself!"
