Family Day

Napkins Anyone???? Okay, so we have this seventeen year old cat that is hating our new puppy and since we are in the apartment there is limited high ground. So...she has decided that the table is her new perch and the napkin holder is just her size. This is soooo gross! She is driving me nuts?!?

We took our kids and puppy out for some family time today. It has been awhile since they have been able to ride bikes so we went to a nearby campus and brought bikes along. They had a great time and were exhausted from all the hills.
The men spent a bunch of time throwing the ball for Tucker and playing frisbee. My daughter got an awesome shot of my son but he will post that on his blog.
We are working hard with Tucker to leash train him while he is still small enough. Man, this is a ton of work! My arm was ready to fall off by the time we finished. Curtis gave it a try for awhile - I think this may take some more time.
This particular picture cracks me up! My husband recently got a very expensive speeding ticket. He was only going 10 miles over the speed limit but it happened to be in a school zone and he didn't have his proof of insurance in the car that day - bummer! Isn't my hubby cute? Not bad for an almost forty year old man!

Yes, I too think that's gross! I'll bring my own napkins if I'm invited for dinner:-) We gotta love our animals.

Looks like you had a fun day. Next time you see me ask me about a leash trick. I can't describe it, but it worked great on my dog.

i think it would be inappropriate for me to comment on whether i think your husband is cute, or not. so i'll consider that a rhetorical question... so when you get the trick from lee ann on keeping your dog from pulling you while on leash, you can come teach my dogs, ok??? glad you had such a nice day!

keep up the leash training!!! that is one thing our dog is completely lacking. She CANNOT and WILL NOT walk on a leash. She would rather choke and die than walk normally on a leash. We can't even take her on a walk because she pulls us on our face. Looks like a fun day!

Your poor kitty! Just looking at Tucker - he looks like he has a lot of energy - it must be exhausting for your poor old kitty. :)

Sounds like you had a very fun day.

I've been on that stretch of road. There is no where it is identified as a school zone. And I think your husband is totally hot!

That is funny that your cat chose the napkin basket to sit it. She does look a little freightened.......
Family day looks fun. I have never thought of taking the boys there to ride there bikes, but I bet that is a great place on Sundays....no traffic.
About your husband...........hhhmmmm, well at least there's no gray hairs there. ;-)

ok, seriously.....your cat is 17 years old. That makes me feel old, because I remember when you got that cat and I was in high school at the time. Where has the time gone?
