And now (insert drum roll, please), here’s a photo recap of my time with Critter:
I took Critter to a yoga class in Oldwick, N.J. Because, frankly, he seemed a bit stiff. Yes, he's made of foam and cardboard, but never mind that. Nonetheless, here is Critter on my yoga mat just before a downward dog. Or something:
Critter also joined me at my favorite Barnes and Noble bookstore in Bridgewater, N.J. We shopped for books, of course:
Of course I showed Critter around my part of New Jersey. I didn't want him to think that N.J is only about the exits on the Turnpike and some reality show about the N.J. shore.
Below is a picture of Critter with an assortment of tomatoes, corn, and cucumbers at a local farm stand.
I considered taking Critter to one of the beautiful N.J. beaches, too, but Critter seemed a bit nervous about the aggressive seagulls (they are rather infamous). Plus, the rip tides from Hurricane Earl (who didn’t really visit, but stirred up the ocean anyway) were intimidating. Also, I worried what sunscreen might do to Critter’s beautiful art work self. Instead, we went for ice cream and a ride on the back of hubby’s Harley Davidson motorcycle. Crazy Critter.
The next stop for Critter is the fabulous state of Texas, where the motto is friendship.
Lucky, lucky Critter.
