Happy 10th Birthday Buddy!
About a month ago we received a birthday invitation, well actually our dogs, Maddy and Chip, received the invitation .. they were being invited to a surprise birthday party for Buddy, the host was Max (the other chocolate lab that lives with my dad). The party was on Sunday .. omg what a fun time .. there were 9 dogs in attendance, 7 were labs (most of them chocolates) and one golden retriever and one mutt (Cole) that looks like a pure black golden retriever. We were very lucky that our awesome weather stayed around for the entire weekend. Dad, his girlfriend Jean, and his neighbor Cheryl put the whole thing together. They came up with two games for the dogs to play .. one was bobbing for bones and one was an obstacle course .. there were balloons for them to pop and water to play in and of course there was birthday cake .. meatloaf made in the shape of a cake, frosted with blue colored mashed potatoes! It was the most clever party I think I've ever been too .. and everyone had a great time .. and the dogs were all great together! Of course there's pictures .. just a few pictures .. roflmao .. I haven't finished putting names and titles on all of them yet .. but if you want to see some very funny pictures, grab a cup of coffee or tea and click here. Oh and I'm the one in the pink shirt, khaki pants and pink sandals *smile*
I have been stitching, but can't post any pictures yet .. two are for PIF's that are almost ready to mail and the other is for an exchange .. but I did finally charge the camera batteries and will have some pictures to post tomorrow of some stash that arrived yesterday!
The remodeling is coming along .. slowly .. but it's happening. The hardwood floor is almost done, should be finished tomorrow. We got an install date for the carpet .. June 19 - 20 .. not happy about it but ohwell .. life goes on.
I'm grateful for dogs ...
