Minooka dog park

Over the weekend, I went with my parents and Molly, the mini golden doodle, to Minooka dog park. If you live near Waukesha and have a dog that loves to run off leash, this is the park for you. It has both a small & big dog area. It's a beautiful park surrounded by big trees. Molly enjoyed herself and meeting new dogs. She recently went to ER, being dehydrated, hence the right leg that looks like she didn't pull up her sock all the way.
The other dog had such stunning eyes, and didn't seem to mind my camera, I took a few shots.

Amarillo, Dumas, and Cactus , Texas

Cadillac Ranch, Amarillo , Texas
I was in Amarillo,Texas last week on another photo shoot with John Sibilski photography. This time we were in Amarillo, drove through Dumas and than shot in Cactus, Texas. We had an entertaining meal at The Big Texan. Known for it's 72 oz steak. Eat on a stage, under an hour, and you don't have to pay! While we were there a young couple got up on stage and got all "handsey" as our waiter called the guy's technique. Plus while dining three cowboys came over to our table and sang the song "Amarillo by Morning." The next day we had some time before flying home to stop by the Cadillac ranch. My favorite saying was "It's Hot Out Here!"

Happy 4th! Tosa parade

Happy 4th!

Joe and I , walked in the Wauwatosa parade this morning with Wisconsin Wags, k9s and their owners. We were sporting my new Stephanie Bartz Photography shirts, while handing out fun k9 smiles. Thanks to all my friends who helped me with this project! We handed out about 500.

Wisconsin Wags also handed out goodie bags.
BIG thanks to Linda for asking me to be in the parade!

It was a good time seeing so many happy faces watching the parade.
