1. Dog portraits.

  2. So it’s national dog day… While I was at work, I decided that I would take Lucy to the dog park for the first time ever.  I called up my friend Clay and he grabbed Conor’s dog and we headed off to the park. Lucy was nervous, I think mainly because 500 other people had the same idea - take your dog to the dog park on national dog day.  It was fun, but I think we will need to head back when it’s not as busy.  This, of course, took place after I annoyed Lucy with my camera for a half hour.  

  3. BBQ with the boys to celebrate Ste’s departure back to Ireland.

  10. I am off work for the week and in Spokane, Washington to visit Caiti! I got here late Sunday night, so we weren’t able to do much then - but got up early Monday morning and headed to Coeur d’Alene (Idaho) for a hike and a day at the lake.  We dropped Remy (Caiti’s dog) off at a friend’s house and drove the 45 minute trek only to realize we both forgot: bathing suit, sunscreen, and a towel to sit on.  After spending time and money at a Nordstrom rack and TJ Max, we were all set and ready for the day.  We went on a ~3 mile hike along the water and got to watch people cliff jump, boats go by, etc.. and it was really nice.  Fun to escape the heat of Phoenix, I think it was 80 degrees yesterday - so awesome!  Then, we sat at the beach front on the lake and relaxed the rest of the day.  Did a lot of people watching and got some sun.  Headed home around 6pm and grabbed dinner in Post Falls, Idaho.  Called it a night and fell asleep immediately when we got back. 

    This morning we went for a walk to the park because Caiti doesn’t start work until 3.  Brought Remy (as you can see), and had a nice time enjoying the weather.  Headed off to watch the USA Soccer match here shortly.. Caiti goes to work, and I go to the golf course :).
