…you can get credit for doing things by association.
My sister-in-law is case in point.
She runs. Actually runs. Does races kind of runs.
Me? Well, let’s just say that if you ever see me running, look behind for what’s chasing me. And save me, because I’m bound to stop any second.
Anyway, Rachel ran the Lab Rescue race this weekend. Justin and Rachel invited us to watch, because they thought Piper would have fun watching all the dogs.
So we packed up all three kids (two four-legged ones and one two-legged one) on Sunday morning. It was the first time they all shared a vehicle together. I was praying that Duncan wouldn’t get nervous and jump over the seat to sit on Piper’s lap.
We watched the dogs play in the park for a little bit, but heard that there was a litter of black lab puppies that were up for adoption on the other side of the park. No worries, Mom- we were not shopping for a new brother or sister for Piper (or Bel!!!). BUT, we did have to go see. I mean, really- how can you pass up holding a puppy???
…ignore the fact that poor Maggie, our black lab, is mysteriously absent from any of these pictures… Not sure how that happened… Poor, neglected Maggie.
We are so unbelievably, over-the-top, bursting with excitement, ready for summer. Piper is going to have so much fun at the parks this year, since she didn’t get to participate at all last year. And they’re building dog parks in most of our local parks now, so the dogs are going to have fun, too. AND we got the okay to take Piper swimming last week at the doctor. So many fun things to do now that the weather is finally starting to get nice.
