Mother-Daughter Week

In between her time visiting Ron as he builds the new Hobby Lobby in NY, Mom came out to spend some quality time with her favorite child - her grand-doggie Emma. Just kidding! The two of them totally bonded, but I'd like to think she was here to see me. I still had class, so Mom had to go explore a bit on her own. Emma loved all the extra walks.

On my Wednesday off, we headed up to New Hampshire to do a little hiking. Up in the mountains it was rainy and cold, so we ditched our first idea and headed to the Kancamagus Highway to do a little exploring.

 We hiked along the path and decided to venture into Sabbaday Brook. Emma wasn't a huge fan of water and a little hesitant, but once we got in the water with her, she loved it!
On our way out, Emma decided she didn't want to follow me.
She tried to follow Mom, but Mom was on the rock and in her way.
We also stopped at the Swift River to see the Rocky Gorge. On the way back to the car, we gave in to Emma and let her go back in the water. So funny! She even laid down in the water. What a crazy dog!

We had a great time exploring. Emma loved being able to roam around in the van! We stopped at this little roadside ice cream place for lunch and she loved sitting at the table waiting for our leftovers. Oma (aka Mom - Emma kept going to Mom instead of me so thanks to Facebook we came up with our new name for her) totally spoiled her!
Having a great time on our road trip!
