Independence fun

We went to a friends place 90 min East of us on Saturday for a pig roast party/family reunion.

Was a lot of fun.

Caden is the only kidlet that came as Chyann was camping and Colton was working.

Caden had a blast playing in their pool with all the kids and their dog Bruno, who absolutely loved being in the water!

I had just decided to go to bed at 1230a when Colton called telling us that his dog Lucky had died. Apparently when he got off work at 10p, fed the animals and realized he hadn't seen Lucky since he had gotten home he went out to look for him.

I think he died of old age. He was two weeks younger than Chyann, so about 13 and a half years old.

Lucky was a good dog. He will be missed.

We decided to drive home that night and arrived at 230a. Dog funeral on Sunday was a very teary affair.

Chyann, coincidentally hurt her knee somehow while camping and came home about 9a Sunday. I think since she is getting more mobility she's able to stretch and pull that scar tissue more than ever. 1 advil and an icepack later and she was good as new.

The rest of our weekend was pretty uneventful, but fun.

Krissy came over and I talked her into trying out the pool, which she loved and we stayed in for quite a while and the Hubby cooked us dinner. Which was delicious! We never did pick any cherries either- too much wine and pool.

I did a ton of laundry and weeding of the garden. Way Too hot for horses, but hopefully soon.

We did some fireworks too.

Looks like Colton is now interested in a Physical therapy program at the local tech school. Interesting, as I did not know he had any kind of interest in physical therapy and we've been seeing one on and off for years.

He says he plans on going with Chyann and I and talking to the PT and PTA on our next appt. Now we'll shall see what happens next..

Speaking of PT, Chyann got up to 75* on her own today!! Amazing!

Here's to this short week going fast!

Toodles :)

I'm so sorry about the loss of your dog. I lost my dog over the weekend also to old age. It's a hard thing even when they are old. Glad you had a nice weekend otherwise.

I loved swimming in your pool the other day. Lucky was a lucky dog in that he had a great life with you guys.
