this is somewhat of a back-dated post...ava was lucky to spend a little time with her two boy cousins sam & joel this past weekend. we went to a little store called bass pro, maybe you've heard of it? GREAT outdoor park and trail for kids and dogs alike.
and...comletely unrelated: here is the product of our latest project - we stained our deck! it's was my husband's motivation that led to it, and my dad's power-washer that made it possible. it feels good to have done it ourselves.
