This cute little town a bit south of us is famous for this ice cream shop that serves obscenely large sundaes. It's surprisingly inexpensive, too. This was one of the smaller sundaes on the menu!
When we still had only two dogs, I set up this rig on our bikes so we could safely take the dogs along. They loved it! I haven't figured out how to put all four dogs on yet and the puppies still need more training and maturity before it would be safe.
Neither Cara or Yoshi likes to swim in our pool, merely tolerating it, yet Yoshi will go into the irrigation canal every time on his own.
The girls play house often, being sure to serve and feed as many babies as they can fit around their little table. I let Blossom join in sometimes, but her play isn't as developed and tends to turn silly, something the other two girls don't always find fun. I am working on helping Blossom find more appropriate activities, but it's hard for her when she sees her sisters enjoying themselves so much.
Apple is finally tall enough to touch the bottom of the shallow end of our pool. She's been unable to figure out how to truly swim, unable to physically exert force enough to propel herself, but she does understand how to hold her breath well and float.
We passed this sign twice a day taking Blossom to her volunteer job
and just had to take a picture of such a contradiction! We'd joke every day
about which sign we should obey, the stop sign or the no stopping sign.
One morning, a group of gardeners knocked on my door and offered to grind the stumps of the many, many trees I'd cut down over that past year or two. Even though it reached 108 degrees that day, I was out there with my chainsaw cutting down the rest of the unwanted trees in order to take advantage of their great deal.
