Leah's Birthday Surprize

Still figuring out the new camera and and the new pc hence the delay, but here's the big moment.

More Construction Site Fun

Who said a construction zone is no place for a kid? The kids have been finding plenty of ways to have fun despite the mess.

Leah's Annual Birthday Zoo Visit

Last weekend I took the kids to the Zoo for Leah's annual birthday trip to the zoo. Scott stayed behind to take the dog to the vet and get the yard cleaned up for a small get together for dinner. Aria, her mom and a long lost friend from grade school and her daughter joined us. It was a hot day and the kids we a bit of a handful so we didn't last very long.

In the evening some friends neighbor and family stopped by for a cook out. Leah was kind enough to agree to a Handy Manny themed party to play off the mess of a construction zone which is our back yard.

Meet the Newest Member of the Family

This morning we loaded the kids in the car for a surprise. After several incorrect guesses we told Leah we were going somewhere to pick out a birthday present. To that she was estatic. About an hour later we pulled into Crazy W farms driveway and announced we were there to pick a puppy. I had found these puppies on-line searching local shelters for rescue dogs. When I saw Border Collie/ Lab mix I knew I had to have one. Scott fell in love with Tac at first sight and declared he would be his. While I was partial to his brother Tic (sister name is Toe) who was rounder and looked more like a border collie. All the puppies were adorable and in the end I think Scott was better at lobbing for his pick.

Tac has been a pleasure thus far and is as cute as can be.
