But, we've had a fun weekend so far. Bug's buddy, David, spent the night Friday, which was also the first car cruise of the year at Meridian Station. What could be more boy appropriate than strolling around, looking at a bunch of really old and really cool cars? Um, apparently not strolling so much as rather poking and chasing and throwing walnuts at each other, then ooo-ing and wow-ing at this car and that...They seemed to have fun and no cars were harmed in the pitching of walnuts--thank goodness, because also apparently Mom's voice saying, "No throwing walnuts around the cars and people!" is inaudible when Boy-silliness is in full gear. It's all right--they didn't listen to the old fart who told them to stop, either...Boys will be boys. When they did stop throwing walnuts, it became stick throwing time...then the farting and the burping...And I actually took them inside (in Public!) for ice cream after we'd seen all the cars. Fortunately they'd settled down (somewhat) and happily gobbled up their cones.
|Awesome cool cars and super old trucks|
|It was Corvette night and this one was our favorite|
|Loved this paint job|
|I'm a sucker for these cars!|
|Ice Cream!!!!!!!! It was hard to say which one had more ice cream on his face when they were done...|
After David went home, it was time to whisk Sweet Pea off to the groomer's to get her nails done. It's definitely a two person job and she acts like she's being absolutely murdered the entire time, so I can't possibly trim her nails myself. But one of the realtors showing our house last week came down to the car to fuss all over Pea (she said she rescues Bassetts--awesome!) and highly recommended the groomers at Whispering Winds Boarding Kennel after I'd told her how bad Pea freaks out when you try to touch her feet to clip her nails. They did a fanastic job, gave her a bath while she was there, too, so she's super white and fluffy now, and the girl who worked on Pea said she wasn't too bad at all when she clipped her nails! Yay!
|Precious pretty Pea--love her gingham bandana!|
