Weekend recap

Quick post today - I love that it's lighter later now - DH and I just got back in from gardening. Pics and details on that later, let's get you caught up on some of this past weekend.

Friday night was pretty quiet. I think we watched some race on TV, which means I went to bed early :)
Saturday early morning DH and I went and picked up my MIL and one of her pups Clancy and went down to the ribbon cutting ceremony for the New Smyrna Beach boardwalk. The event was sponsored by Southeast Volusia County Humane Society, Friends of Smyrna Dunes Park, the Obedience Club, Chris' Critter Sitters , and others. This officially opened the boardwalk back up to dogs (leashed dogs that is). Aside from the ribbon cutting, there were demonstrations of obedience and pet first aid. DH and I are interested in the 6-8 hour Pet Tech First Aid class - it covers a lot of good information.

I'll fill you in on the rest of the weekend tomorrow. For now, enjoy some pics from Saturday morning - as you can see, the weather was perfect. And make sure to check out flickr for more pics (and a couple videos) from the day.

And everyone enjoyed the water, here's Beans and Clancy
Yes, I said everyone - even Rufus!


  1. Good pictures! So proud of Rufus and Clancy getting their paws and more wet! Oh I didn't realize you did get disappearing island in the picture, neat!

  2. How funny that I just happened to stumble upon your blog, but I'm glad I did! My family (including min. poodle) is from Port Orange too...where exactly is this? My little guy has never been to the beach, I'd like to see his reaction lol :) If you have a free moment I'd LOVE to get more info! PS - Clancy & Beans are ADORABLE
