Almost this entire batch is from Mel's first trip to Canobie Lake Park. We met up with James and Muffie in Melrose and headed off to Canobie. At the time though, we didn't realize Muffie was with us... When James came to pick us up, he had Muffie hide in the way back of his car. When we got out at a rest stop in New Hampshire, Muffie got out and got into the front seat. We were pretty surprised when we got back to the car. Not bad guys!

Once at Canobie Rob joined us for a while, but he was with other friends so he didn't stick around for the entire day.

Unfortunately, my feet were nearly useless this entire trip due to some nasty blisters and some other strange affliction that made it hard to walk. Regardless of that, we still had a lot of fun, and Mel enjoyed her first trip to Canobie. We'll have to go back next summer when I can actually walk right (and the lines are smaller!)

The last set of pictures is of me, Mel, and Bailey bugging their cat Mo. Poor Mo.
