There and back again (and the pictures to prove it)

We're home from our Easter holiday. It's still Easter, but Mom is working today. She didn't really have Easter off, it was just her regular weekend (she works every other weekend, so her weekends off are usually more than two days). We're posting a zillion pictures of our trip and hope we won't bore you too much. We've got plenty more (slightly more silly) pictures for you to see later.
Heading off in the morning. The humans were too slow and ended up having to drive to the station to make it in time. Then parked as the train was approaching and we all ran. Much fun.
Aboard the train we were pretty good. Nimbus barked at the ticket-lady (of course) and Coco tried her very best to charm the man across the isle.
Then gave up and decided PA was her best shot.
Hey! I'm just good so you don't mention me? Huh?

In Oslo we took a great walk before heading for the second train. We'll post those pictures separately. They're lots of fun. We promise - you just wait and see!

Taking the elevator down to the underground platform at the Nathional Theatre station. A bit scary - but not as scary as the escalators (according to Nimbus who's afrait of them, too).

This sort of art is on the wall across from the platform. Mom likes the concept. We don't care. It's various sorts of pictures and patterns made with holes in metal plates.

Rubbing against PA's legs. Wearing a coat is sooooo irritating.. Especially when we have to stand still for like minutes!

Our train.. Getting into this train we had to climb very steep steps. Rather difficult for short pug legs.

After arriving we did some relaxing..
Bajas does it really well.
Coco - and Nimbus is in the blanket somewhere...
Pretty moonlight across the lake - Mom attempted pictures.. But it's hard to keep the camera steady. You can see it's pretty, though!

It snowed! See the silly whippet butt in the right bottom corner.
Coco heading off for a walk on the beach!
Nimbus having a run - you can see the house at the top of the picture. Not far to get to the lake ;)
Pretty, pretty..
Sniff, sniff.. The water is really low during winter so in summer we'd be under water by now.

Got anything yummy?
The view towards the city.
We took a long walk, too.. And Mom fell and hurt her back and her elbow. She's rather useless at walking, apparently... Sigh.. But it was cold and windy, allthough pretty, so we didn't mind staying inside and just relaxing most of the time. It's what we do best, anyways.

After our evening walk Mom suggested we come outside with her in the cold to attempt more moon pictures. We didn't like the idea very much. See our faces??
She made us come outside anyways!! But then we ran into the neighbours yard and found a big bone!! Hah! That taught her a lesson! All in all we had a very good trip and behaved very well on the train. Mom hadn't tried taking us all along at once before, but we were no trouble. Really.
We hope you've all had fun too!

You got to go on a train!! How'd it feel? We've never been on one before.
Your pictures are great!! We especially like the first one (it's kinda funny!! Hee hee), the first moon one (even if it's blurry, it looks amazing!), and the beach ones!!
We're glad you had a good time!
Wags and licks,
