Home Alone

Hey Pups,

We thought we were going to be starring in Home Alone: Kapp Pack this Christmas. The bipeds went away last week. They left Friday night and just came home on Saturday. Turns out they ran off to another country to escape the cold, windy, snowy, icy weather in PA. I had to look at pictures on their camera to find out where they went. It appears they were in Aruba (A-Roo-Bob in Little Biped speak).

Iguanas are a common sight in Aruba - Where's Waldo?


Mom with her Deeve bag on the beach.



A beautiful sunset. Yes, Captain Maverick - that is a pirate ship. You can go on a half-day cruise that includes open bar, lunch and snorkeling.


Amici, this is for you. Your own restaurant in Palm Beach, Aruba.

The little biped got her very own coconut. She's not making a face because of how it tasted, but because the sun was in her eyes.


The pool and the Lighthouse Tower of the Marriott Surf Club (where the bipeds stayed).

Another beautiful sunset.
A view of the pool from the balcony.

What a cool shot of the palm tree at sunset! Thanks to Gama for this picture.

The bipeds took a ride on a boat with a under-water viewing deck over the wreck of the Antilla. This was a German merchant ship which was scuttled so the Dutch couldn't capture it during WWII. It has become a reef. The fish on the lower right are yellow snapper.


This is the Antilla.

Dinner at Simply Fish at sunset - a restaurant on the beach.


The Marriott hotel, a few doors down from the Marriott Surf Club. There's a casino here. Mom and Dad played some and lost a little.


More sunset.

The little biped's favorite activity of the week. She spent about 2 hours on the slide every day.

The foreground is Aruba. The mountain in the background is Venezuela (about 15 miles away).


California Lighthouse. Named California because they decided to build it after The California sank off the coast.
Hope you enjoyed these pictures. The only thing that made Mom and Dad sad during the trip was seeing all the homeless dogs running around the island. So, public service announcement - support rescue!
Kisses, Skyboy

I think we should start a travel agency that requires the humans to take the pups to all the fun places. I'd love to run on the beach and play in the water. Wouldn't you?
