Photo summary of 4th of July weekend

I've been trying to find time to write a post about our fantastic 4th of July weekend, but I think a Photo summary with a few details might be all I have time to do.

We went to Colorado Springs to visit H's family and some friends. We went to a party on the 4th at a friend's parent's ranch and had a blast, dogs were invited, but ours weren't with us this weekend :( they would have had a blast. We also went to the zoo on the 4th, they have a great zoo there, but it's on a mountain so there was lots of exercise involved.

Turns out that other parts of the country get rain, and in fact it sometimes hails. When you don't ever see rain, it sort of freaks you out. Also, being from the midwest, Hail=Tornadoes, however, it cleared up shortly after this pic was taken.
 We also visited with H's dad and step-mom at their house. H's dad is trying to get him to smile for pictures instead of being a grump. I think we were late for something before this pic was taken.
Instead of taking the dogs with us as we usually do, we hired a pet sitter that came to the house 3 times a day and fed the dogs and let them out as well as watered our plants and took care of our turtles. She left us a little surprise when we got back that included the stuff pictured as well as a note as to how the dogs did each day. Mattie's thyroid medicine is pictured on the right. The woman also gives our pets their medicines while we were gone.

Side note: Still in the 2WW, currently 12 dpo, took a test yesterday, it was negative. Had lots of symptoms this past weekend including diziness and nausea, but it could have been the higher elevation.


  1. Sounds like a great time! I love that the pet sitter left such nice stuff for you, she's a keeper!!

  2. It sounds like you had a great weekend and your pups were well taken care of :)

  3. Thank you for your great work and… this Blog is a really pleasant surprise! Keep up the good work!
