In January 2013 (Norm knows he’s late with this update), Norm went back to the East Coast for his first wedding. Norm really loves visiting his friends on The Other Coast!
At the end of March 2013, two friends were kind enough to let Norm tag along on their trip to Amsterdam! Norm especially enjoyed the Royal Artis Zoo.
Some of you may recall that back around Christmas 2012, Norm’s festive 3rd cousin Lloyd moved in.
For the most part, Lloyd has been content to be a homebody; however, while Norm was in Amsterdam (photos coming soon!), Lloyd got the travel bug. Being a holiday junkie, he chose Easter weekend to make his inaugural jaunt, down to Portland, OR. The weather was beautiful – sunny and warm – and Lloyd had a great time wandering around that quirky city!
In March 2013, Norm realized he hadn’t been on a trip in a little while. Since no human friends were traveling anytime soon, he decided to play tourist in his home city of Seattle, WA.
In January 2013, Norm decided to head somewhere warmer than home, so he visited San Francisco. Norm saw the Golden Gate Bridge, Lombard Street, The Palace of Fine Arts, and more!
After Christmas, Norm had a couple more days in Texas to explore Houston and other surrounding cities.
Christmas 2012 was spent in Richmond, TX, with Norm’s roommate’s family. Norm had a great time hanging out with his old family friend, Santa, and helping set out all the presents.
Now hooked on parties, in mid-December 2012, Norm attended his first Christmas party. He does not recommend eggnog wine, by the way.
As soon as he got back from Florida a couple of days after Thanksgiving, Norm was back in the social swing at his first party. He learned to play poker and met a wonderful new doggy friend.
Norm went to Florida for Thanksgiving 2012 and visited another military base. Norm probably wasn’t really supposed to get pictures in some of the places he did, but who’s going to arrest a gnome?
