Last Friday was my birthday, woohoo! Because we were entered to run in the Trinity 5K at 9AM Saturday morning we kept Friday’s celebrating pretty low key. We got breakfast at Manhattan Bagel (my favorite) and worked a full day while hydrating like crazy for the race. After work we took a nice walk with Bailey at Ridley Creek State Park before eating a pasta dinner and getting a good night’s sleep. Here’s a photo of my Ridley Creek walking buddies… the perfect birthday companions! 🙂
The weather was gorgeous during our walk. Since we weren’t planning on doing any running in the park I brought my camera along to capture the beautiful autumn colors and my favorite photo subject, Bailey. Here are a few of the photos I took:
Bailey hasn’t been to Ridley Creek State Park since I hurt my foot in late September. She was so happy to be out and about again! She was sporting her new ‘walkeez’ fleece harness and she paused for lots of photo ops. She’s such a good dog!
Hiking in the park with Matt and Bailey was the perfect way to spend my birthday. What’s your idea of the perfect birthday afternoon?

Happy Birthday! Sounds like a great way to spend it. Gorgeous pictures of your walking companions!
Happy Belated Birthday!!! Gorgeous photos, and it looks like you had an awesome day. Ridley Creek is so pretty. I wish it wasn’t such a drive for me.
A friend of a friend of a friend posted a link from your blog on fb. I have a Vizsla and have tried so many harnesses I lost count. The harness on your GSP looks perfect. Where is it from?
Hi Amy! It’s a Walkeez harness (http://www.walkeezharness.com). The orange parts are all soft fleece and I like it a lot. Bailey is a size 4 and she weighs about 45 lbs in case that helps you with sizing. 🙂
Very helpful. Thank you. Also, I poked around your blog and found it inspiring. Looking forward to following you.
Bailey is a gorgeous dog!
