Scout has been adopted...

But never fear, Georgie (and his giant tongue) are here!

Ben's Big Adventure!

Ben wanted me to post his latest adveture on my website since he doesn't know how to type yet...

In an effort to get rid of some of Ben's energy, Mom came up with a great way to exercise him! Rollerblading! And he loves it!

Mom has been taking Ben to this trail through the woods. It is 3 miles each way.

There are lots of interesting things to see and smell! Even horses, which Ben is scared of! Mom let him sniff one through the fence and it didn't go well.
He'd rather just keep on running! Mom can hardly keep up!

At the end of the trail Mom lets him play in the river to cool down. It's kind of dark but here he is running like crazy in the water!

Of course, his favorite thing ever remains fetching. "Mom, there is a stick RIGHT next to you. Do you see it??"

"Please throw it for me!"

When Ben finally gets a LITTLE tired, Mom takes him back home. Here is a bad picture of the sunset they saw after swimming.

He has all kinds of interesting smells when he gets home and I get really jealous! Mom says I can't come along though because my fear of wheels will probably kill her!

Boating Fun!

This weekend Dad came to visit and brought his boat! It was the first time that everyone but me had gotten a ride. Mom made Ellie wear her life jacket because she's not as skilled a swimmer as the rest of us. You can tell by her expression how she feels about boating before we even got in the water!

"I am NOT happy about this"

But I was super happy!! Sun on my face and the wind in my ears! What could be better?

The lull of the boat was very relaxing! It didn't take Ben long to fall asleep!

Until we took a break for some swimming!

Even Miss Ellie went in the water! Only up to her arm pits though! Wimp ;)

Afterwards, all the action called for another nap!

Then Dad decided he was going to go for a swim in the middle of the lake. And Mom decided to throw me in!

My face demonstrates exactly how I felt about that cold, forced swim!

Jack thought it was hilarious!

I was pretty mad at Mom afterwards!

Until I got to wear her shades...

The next day we left Ben and Ellie at home. Mom said something about our boat looking like a floating kennel. We tried a new lake, too.

It was another perfect day!

Lake Badin had a lot of wildlife for Jack to watch!

And it was smooth and quiet so we could navigate!

And look for fishies!

We even got to swim for awhile...

What a fabulous weekend!
