Now that I got a new iPhone and Les took over my Samsung,  Joelle didn't waste any time getting him on Instagram.

I was at the Goldeyes game with this gem tonight and our husbands, while my girls babysat her boys.

Now that Jack has been fully vaccinated, it's so nice having the freedom to take him anywhere...including our town's dog park. He finally had space to just run.

My back issue has flared up again this week but thankfully I can still get out for my walks.


Finding this note from a friend on my computer screen this morning was a good way to start my work week!

Well into week 2 of counting calories and so far so good!

Ice cream sounded good on a scorching hot day like today, so we went on a 2 mile walk to get it! Jack was with us too...he just didn't make it into the shot!

This morning started with me wanting to give my dog away and it ended with me cuddling him on my lap while he slept. And in between we had a good laugh at his sleeping position. Sigh...the life of a pet owner sure is a roller coaster ride!

Les, Malia and Jack were away camping this weekend. Tonight I enjoyed going for our regular evening walk together. Now I just wish we could convince Joelle to come with us more often!

My nephew's birthday is coming up soon and since he's super into Mario Brothers, Joelle suggested I add to his collection. I already made him Mario and Luigi dolls for his birthday last year and for Christmas so she suggested Toad. I started making him yesterday and finished it today and I think he turned out pretty good!

I introduced Joelle to Titanic tonight. I hadn't seen it in years.

Well, as of today I have officially started counting calories for the first time ever. Let's hope this will work out well for me!

Malia started her last week of VBS this morning. Next year she will be too old and will switch over to being a volunteer like Joelle.

This dog. He has become such an important part of our family. I love how much more time we all spend together since having him in our lives.

Went shopping with the fam jam today. I was the least successful but at least I got some work out pants!

Joelle's awesome jump into the pool at my sister's place today.

Leaving Jack for the weekend was not easy, but we did enjoy our weekend with less responsibility and we were all happy to be reunited this afternoon!
