Over the weekend I visited my sister and her family and we had an absolute blast. It was so wonderful to see her and Andrew and the kids. We went water parking and played games and legos and magnatiles and looked for Waldo. I took Bentley and Blue with me for the first time too. Bentley has been down many times (back when Bullet was still with us), but I haven't taken them since I adopted Blue. Becky has two dogs, about the same size as Bentley and Blue, and I figured they'd have a lot of fun, but it's always a bit stressful introducing new dogs.
In any case, they did great and had a blast. Even on the first night Blue and Becky's dog Auto were playing and rumpusing and have a grand time. I was so pleased with how well they did together. No fussing at all. It's good because in just a couple of weeks I'm taking them with me when I go visit my folks in NM.
Becky has two sofas and the four dogs kept jumping up and down interchangeably trying to identify where they would get the most snuggles. Even for a dog, the grass is always greener on the other couch?
We made lemon blueberry gelato for the adults (so delicious and tart), while the kids made vanilla m&m ice cream using the can rolling method.
Backy made us delicious pancakes with homemade whip cream and blueberry sauce.
And on the way home, in spite of my best efforts, Blue fell down into the area behind the drivers seat. Don't worry, he was fine.
I remembered to take a snapshot from the street of my friend's fabulous haunted-looking house (same place as the pink coneflowers from last week)
And!! My dahlias have their first buds! Hopefully that means soon flowers rather than just plants. Hooray!
I hope you are all having a good week! Click over to LeeAnna's for more of the good stuff!
