Too Hot (and Too Early) to Play

Riley is zonked out beside me on the couch taking her morning nap.  It’s going to be almost 90 degrees today.  It was 95 yesterday!  We stayed inside most of the day.

I am planning on dragging taking my sister with me to a big dog show that’s going on this weekend in town.  The Langley Kennel Club and the Gloucester Kennel Club put this show on every year at the local Convention Center.  I went a few years ago, but only had time to browse, so I spend on planning a little bit more time there this year.  Unfortunately, dogs that aren’t competing in the show can’t attend, so Riley will just have to continue her napping.  The Australian Cattle Dogs are showing tomorrow morning, and not today, but I’m hoping to get lots of pictures of other dog breeds today.
Have a safe and happy Memorial Day weekend!  I might head up to Busch Gardens one day this weekend (with about 87,000 other people, no doubt…), and am planning on hitting up some yard sales tomorrow morning.  Also, I think I’m going to be babysitting for my friends while they go to a movie.  (It’s all good, I like to babysit this little girl!).

More Christmas Happenings

My family and I went up to Busch Gardens yesterday to have some fun at “Christmas Town.”  My brother-in-law and I managed to take some really silly pictures but we got a bunch of good ones that I won’t share on here but here are some of the good and goofy pictures:

It was 32 degrees yesterday.  We got home around 10:00 last night and when we were 10 minutes from home, ADT (our alarm system company) called us to tell us that our alarm had gone off.  The first thing I thought of was that whoever had broken into our house had probably let the dogs right out the front door as soon as they got in there and that I would be missing Riley for Christmas.  The second thing I thought of was that all of our Christmas presents had probably been stolen (you know, like you see on cheesy Christmas movies!).  Luckily the dogs had tripped off the sensor and everything is fine and dandy.  No thanks to the police department though who arrived after we were already home and had checked out the house to make sure it was good.
