but we visited their web site and
checked out some yummy natural treats

Since we showed you that we follow Finn
last week 
we wanted to show that we love Gizmo too!

Take a walk in a Nature Preserve
Sunday morning we went for a walk in
The Edson Fichter Nature Area

the trail is part of the Pocatello Greenway

There was a sign to tell us about the trail
and who it is named after

This is the Portneuf River
it feeds into the
community fishing pond

a walking path goes all around the pond
 While we were walking we met this
lady peep and her little peep
this was a place where it looked like
they would give nature talks
It was a beautiful walk all the way around
Find a sculpture
This metal sculpture was at the entrance to the trail

Find Flowers
we really liked these purple flowers and

 there sure was a lot of them
We had a great time
It was a beautiful morning for a walk

We want to do it again!
We would like to thank Finn & Gizmo
for hosting Park Day 2.0 
and inspiring us to get out and see some new places.
We had a blast!

Field of Heroes

2013 Idaho Field of Heroes Memorial


Memorial Day Weekend 2013, May 24 - 27
at Century High School in Pocatello Idaho



The Field of Heroes is a community volunteer project. The materials required for its production are all donated or purchased with funds donated by the general public. That includes everything from the wood, paint, lamination of the plaques, lights, and portable toilets, to the metal connectors, signs and additional needs. These volunteers include Veterans, Boy Scouts, and kids out of school, professionals who take time from their workday to come out, housewives and regular patriotic citizens. Other volunteers include local law enforcement and members of the local National Guard and Reserve Units, many who have served in Iraq and Afghanistan. Volunteers take time out of their busy lives and come out in all kinds of weather to make the tribute perfect.
The Field of Heroes is a one of a kind tribute to every service member who has died in Iraq or Afghanistan since the beginning of Operation Iraqi Freedom (now Operation New Dawn) and Operation Enduring Freedom.
  On Memorial Day weekend, the soccer fields at Century High School in Pocatello, Idaho are transformed into a temporary memorial in the spirit of famous national cemeteries such as Arlington National Cemetery which is located in Washington DC.
The engineers begin with a largely empty soccer field at Century High School...
  Each wooden marker is handmade, painted white and affixed with the name, rank and the date of death of an American Service Member who paid the ultimate price in the name of freedom.

The markers are then carefully spaced and placed into the ground. Once the field has been constructed
 it is then dedicated as hallowed ground
and opened to the public
for those who wish to come and pay their respects.
We did not get to go on the Memorial Ground
as pets were not allowed
but a nice lady offered to take our picture
with Mom & Dad just outside the memorial
Mom and Dad then each took a turn visiting the Memorial
From Mom
It is hard to describe the power of this memorial
Although this is its 10th year,
this was the first time we made the trip across town to see it.

Stan & I decided to return Sat evening without the pugs
so we could take our time experiencing it together.
In front there was a special section for Idaho
 two rows of larger crosses
each with the name, rank, age,
where killed, hometown and a picture

We went up and down the row pausing to read each one
before walking out into the rows and rows of crosses
Those who had been awarded the Medal of Honor
their story was displayed with their cross

The Price of Freedom

   As Americans we hold the right to free speech, freedom of assembly, freedom of religion, the right to be represented in government, the right to keep and bear arms, and the right to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness above all else. The men and women who have fought and died in every war and conflict since we won our freedom, thought that the rights of others, the freedom of their children, and the right to choose their own fate, was far more important than their own lives. This is the price paid for your liberty, your freedom, and your way of life. Honor this gift because it is the Price of Freedom.

On this Memorial Day
we honor all those
 (two and four legged)
that have fought and gave their lives
 serving this country. 

May God Bless America

Mom found a park that was easy for Miss Vickie to find.
 Here we are waiting for them to arrive!
They are here!!
Look! It's Bert! 
He is just as handsome in person

 Greta, Bert & Mom saying hello!

Bert is real good at posing for pictures

And talk about some playground fun
Bert knows how to have a good time

Look! Bert's King of the World!
Bailey & Bert went for a stroll together
working things out cause
they kinda got off on the wrong paw
(sorry Bert buddy, I wasn't a very gracious host)
And after a good roll in the wet grass
we posed for some more pictures
