Let's hear it for sunshine! (I'll just assume the Internet is rejoicing along with me.) The local dog park opened yesterday (I'm not even kidding - Doug has been talking about this for months, people. Months.), so we took Zoo over. Sadly, I forgot my camera, because she was hilarious. It's not that Zooey is antisocial... but she's just really submissive to every other dog (or baby piglet) ever. Doug thinks it's because a German shepherd attacked her at the last dog park he went to. Regardless, last night I felt like a parent on the first day of preschool, trying to get my shy toddler to play with the other kids.
Today, we had a productive day. Doug took Zoo to the dog park with our friend Troy and his dog (Troy's girlfriend, my friend Maria, has a really fun food blog here!). Then our friend Nick came over and he and Doug assessed our lawn, made a trip to Home Depot & started the backyard overhaul. Would you look at these manly men?
In the meantime, I contributed by walking Zooey and providing nourishment.
(Tried a new chocolate chip cookie recipe, ala Annie - so, so good)
Made, of course, with Excelsior Farms beef.
And that's pretty much it!
Except, listen to this song (Jeanette, I'm looking at you).
Oh, and I have 14 days of school left.
