The Adventure, Part 1 - The Trip

Hi everyone!  Big Ern here!  You will not believe the weekend I had!  It started on Friday with Mama running around getting things packed and getting me all ready to go for a long ride.  Check out the awesome new sweater and collar she bought for me!

Then Aunt Jess showed up at our house when she was done with work.  We loaded our stuff in her car and drove to her house where she packed up Princess Mia.  Then we drove all the way to Columbus, OH.  We stopped at a restaurant called the Claddagh.  It's an Irish pub that allows dogs on the patio.  We sat right outside the window from where an Irish band was playing!
Mama and Aunt Jess thought this king statue was funny so they insisted on posing in front of it with us.
After dinner we drove to the hotel where we spent the night.  In the morning I helped Mama pack and was ready to go!
 Mia was also excited to find out where we were going!
Can we please go already?
Not far from the hotel was this restaurant.  We thought it sounded like a neat place.  We guessed it was a restaurant started by military veterans!
One more stop before leaving Columbus...Dunkin' Donuts!  We were surprised that this one included a Baskin Robbins ice cream shop, but it was a little too early for ice cream.
It's not chocolate, but it sounded interesting...French Toast ice cream!
We drove all day on Saturday through Ohio, Pennsylvania, and New York.  When we got to Pennsylvania, the corn fields disappeared and were replaced by vineyards!  Lots and lots of vineyards!
We had to stop for a potty break and saw this horrible thing.  Can you see the deer horns on the back of that truck?  Someone killed Bambi!!!!!  The horror!!!
Well, we finally got to our destination...Webster, NY.  We went to the home of Aunt Punchy!  We spent the night there and then on Sunday we all got dressed up for a pawty!  I had my necktie.
Mia had her dress that Aunt Nancy sent her.
Stewie got his bowtie on.
Oh, hi Marty!
 Come on, Rosie, we have to go to the pawty!
Oh look, it's the birthday boy!!!  Does anyone recognize this KPR pug?  It's Vinny!!!  He used to be called Napoleon, but his new mama Linda renamed him.
That's all for part 1.  Stay tuned for our Wordless Wednesday post of pictures from the pawty!!!

Pug hugs and kisses,
Ernie and the Pug Posse
