Summer Days

After the crazy, long, cold winter that we had here in Massachusetts, our family has been loving the warmth and the sun of the summer.  Josie, in particular, has been soaking up the rays and enjoying her time at the pool.  Like me, Josie NEVER complains about it being "too" hot.

Josie's big thrill this summer was that she didn't have to do any deep water tests in order to swim in the pool by herself.  Our pool insists that children pass the test two years in a row and Josie's second year was last summer.  This year, Josie got to march into the pool's office and get her blue band without any stress at all.  It was a beautiful thing.

Especially since Josie really enjoys the deep end of the pool.

Oh, sun!  Where have you been for the last six months?!?!

We're so thrilled to see you again!

Dash Has Puppies

Our friend and neighbor Audrey has new puppies at her house!  Her cocker spaniel, Dash, gave birth to five beautiful puppies a few weeks ago.

We've been chomping at the bit to see the puppies, but Dash was being (understandably) protective and we had to wait until she felt ready for the puppies to be introduced to their adoring public.

Georgia got to hold Grisley:

and I got to hold a little girl who hasn't been named yet.

Audrey had just gotten back from a trip to Disney World with her Aunt and Uncle (thus the Minnie Mouse ears) and we had fun catching up with her and hearing all about her trip while snugging with the soft, sweet babies.

Dash kept a protective watch over her puppies - and us.

I didn't get too many photos because I was worried that the flash might disturb Dash.

Most of the dogs were asleep while we were there - and doing all those cute puppy things like suckling and running in their sleep.

Oh how sweet Dash's puppies are!
