Western PA

kelsey spinning on the kitchen floor
We took a spin down the 270…and then I didn’t pay attention and we missed a turn off for the PA Turnpike…eventually, we made it into the down of Butler. We visited Kane – Mark’s best friend and his best man for our wedding…

It was a relaxing President’s Day Weekend. Kane and Missy were lovely hosts. Yummy home-cooked food and three adorable girls. We played Clue and Spades on our last night. I rocked that game!

A quick side note…I’m posting pix to flickr.com. We’ll see how this work’s out. Click on Kelsey’s spinning pix – if you want to see bigger pix.

Louie came along….I tried to introduce him to the girls – but they started pulling him away…and I figured Louie wasn’t ready to play with them. I’ve seen what they did to their toys. Louie’s a world traveler…and well…he’s not just any toy.

Louie can't figure out the remote control

Here’s me, Louie – trying to figure out Kane’s cool TV. It’s too complicated for a simple bear like me. Too many clickers.

This is Louie’s first trip to the Walmart Supercenter. I thought it was big. That’s a bit of a shock, since I’m such a big bear! I’m trying to help Markie pick out some sweats.

big house...some are on sale.
Kane told Mommy these houses go for something like $350 K – $750 K…Mommy was impressed. She said you can’t get a deal like that in Cali.

Redland Brick
Kane gave Mommy and Mark a tour of Redlan Brick. He should them how to make bricks.

Mommy said it looks like it takes a lot of dirt.

Mommy and Markie liked the cool robotic arms that swung the bricks around.

Kane shows Mommy and Markie where the bricks are dried out.

Mommy and Markie walked ontop of the kiln. Kane told Mommy the bricks are fired up in the kiln for about 7 days or so.

Queenkv and bricks!
Mommy got to take a brick home as a souvenir.

Louie and the Bricks!
Louie can’t wait to go home! I miss Andre.
