Birthday Trip and Professional Pictures!

My mom (Riley’s Grandma), sister (Riley’s Aunt Baddy), and I had a fun overnight trip to Virginia Beach on Friday night.  We ate (too much), shopped, and swam.  Here are some of our pics:

We stayed at the Westin (don’t worry, Aunt Baddy–the coupon queen–got a killer deal on it!  Normally, we would NOT be staying somewhere as expensive as the Westin!).
We had dinner at the Cheesecake Factory…yum!  I’m sure we each consumed about 5,000 calories there, but hey, we never go!
Trying to tame “The Poof!”  The two birthday girls.
They had a salt water pool at the hotel on the 5th floor.
I was into being silly on the trip for some reason!  (Aunt Baddy on the left with bunny ears, and me on the right).

Darn the Hampton Roads Bridge Tunnel making all traffic stop!  Luckily, it was only for about 2 minutes.
Riley and I just got back from having her pictures taken.  She did really well, but is passed out on the couch right now!  The photographer was great and–best of all–quick!  We were able to keep Riley’s attention for about 25 minutes.  Pretty good considering Riley has doggy ADD, I’m sure!  🙂  I was able to get some shots with Riley, shots of Riley in her therapy gear, shots of her in her different bandannas and costumes, and shots of her doing her tricks.  We should get the pictures back sometime next week, but the photographer may post some sneak peeks on Facebook before then, so I’ll be sure to share them if she does.
