4th of July with family in Decatur

Family get together at JC and Kathy's in Decatur was fun.  Got to meet Bredina's mom and Shannon and Michael's precious Keagan.

Shannon and Bret play bags

 JC made the bags game for Bret for Christmas.  He said he waxed it well to make it interesting. 
JC, Linda, and Shirley-can you tell we're related?

And I thought getting a good picture with one dog was hard.  Now with three it is impossible. Someone's head is usually in motion, or turned. Oh, they're not spoiled at all...Shirley said so.
OK, there's a little food left..who wants some more? 

The "before" grooming picture...we didn't get an after of all three.

We've gone to the dogs...I wanted a "small dog" that would fit in a carrier under a plane seat...oh plans and such.  The main goals were to get me off the couch and outside to meet neighbors in Hawaiian Isles.  That has been accomplished.  Of course, Izzy needed a playmate. So, a second visit to Posh Puppies, the rescue in St. Louis, resulted in the addition of Ruby.

Izzy graduated from beginning obedience July 2010.
Ruby's graduation was July 2011
Our new addition in Hawaiian Isles May/2013

July Card Kit 3

Maggie loves to go on picnics in the summer. Right now she's waiting for the corn to ripen so they can have a corn roast, her favorite summer food. Hope your summer is going well. Thanks for visiting.

Again, the DP is from DCWV Fun in the Sun collection from last summer. Love to use products from my stash!

This is one of two kits for the new summer card kit swap. Maggie is enjoying her summer while she is cooling off in the water. The DP is from last summer's Fun in the Sun collection from DCWV.
