Tucker is Molly’s preschool “Class Pet.” He goes home with one student every weekend and has many adventures. Here is the story of Tucker’s time with us this weekend:
My Adventures with Molly Hughart
Friday October 12th
On Friday I went home with Molly Hughart! Little did I know, but I was about to partake on a journey all the way to Bend, OR. That is where Molly’s aunt and uncle (Auntie Lo and Uncle Matt) live. Our adventure started with a long car ride with Molly and her family (that’s Molly and me riding in the car together). We passed the time watching the rain drops on the car window and the tall trees wiz by.
A couple of hours later, we arrived in Bend very hungry and tired. We met Auntie Lo and Uncle Matt at Flatbread pizza. Molly and I made our own pizza and it was very yummy. Following pizza, we went to Goody’s Ice Cream parlor in downtown Bend for a little desert.
When we finally arrived at Auntie Lo and Uncle Matt’s house later that night, I was in for a surprise. Turns out, I wasn’t the only Tucker in the house. That’s me and Tucker the cat. Tucker also has a brother cat named Trigger.
After a long day, it was time for bed. Molly and I read books with Auntie Lo and dozed off to stories of polar bears.

The next day, we went to the Central Oregon Pumpkin Company, a pumpkin patch near Smith Rock outside of Redmond, OR. What a fun time! We went on a pony ride, got lost in a corn maze, rode the animal train, and picked out the family pumpkins. Molly and her family (Daddy, Mama, and baby brother Brendan) capped off the day with a family picture.
Later that day, Molly and I made chocolate cupcakes. We then watched the Oregon State Beavers beat the BYU Cougars. What a season so far for the Beavs! 5-0!!! I love my Beavers!

On Sunday, we all went out to breakfast and then we went to visit Auntie Lo’s classroom at Bear Creek Elementary School. Molly’s Aunt teaches Kindergarten there. Boy did we have fun in her classroom and on the playground!
After eating lunch we said goodbye to Bend and started the long drive home to Tigard. Molly and I didn’t see much of it though. We both fell fast asleep before we had even left the city limits!
Back in Tigard at Molly’s house, I got to play with the Hughart’s beagle, Cassie. She loved having another dog in the house! Then Molly and I played with all her stuffed animals on her bed. I almost got lost in that big pile!
I enjoyed one more night snuggling with Molly (This time in her own bed!) Molly loves me so much! What a fun weekend with the Hugharts! I had a great time!
