Not many words to share, but had to get some of our sunny day pictures up!

A favorite activity of ours to occupy our endless summer daylight is camping. Since the hubs checks out next week to commercial fish (gotta make that money!) we wanted to get in at least one trip before he leaves. Molly has been on several camping trips in her time with us, but last weekend was Brodie's very first trip, and our first trip with two pooches. First of all camping with the Forester was amazing! We crammed 3 people and 2 dogs and all of our stuff in there without having to sacrifice safety :).

Holy smokes it is amazing how time flies, particularly without weekly blogging documentation to recap life and also suck some major time out of my day. Don't get me wrong I love blogland, particularly staying informed about all of your lives through your posts, I may have been quiet here but have not been absent from reading all of your blogs. Summer rolled in full force around the beginning of May right around the time school ended and blogging fell off the radar! Here is a little recap of what has been going on around here in bullet form.
- The sun finally graced us with its presence and got rid of the rest of the snow, so the four of us spent a lot of time exploring new walking areas going to the park and hanging out at the grandparents, we also learned that Brodie has an affinity for water (after he conquered his fear of actually stepping into it).
- We discovered a "beach" area that is well away from civilization and perfect for whipping up a camp fire, drinking a few beers and letting the dogs run as far as the eye can see with little chance of running into anyone. It also made for the perfect excuse to pack Molly's backpack full of stuff for her to carry for us on our trek down to the beach.

- We also finally got a new-to-us, bigger car aka swagger wagon. To say I love my Subaru Forester would be an enormous understatement, I luurrve it like none other. It's spacious, economical, reliable and dare I say sexy? Anywho, we now are able to keep the pups gated into the enormous cargo space area with a comfy bed and be able to use our extra three seats for people. We adore being able to not have to sacrifice not taking our pups somewhere due to lack of seat space.
Well I think that is enough of an update for our first blog post back in over a month, I don't want to waste all my juicy new pictures just yet. As far as future blogging goes lets face it, we have never really been the 5 day a week posters and I have decided that is totally okay. I plan to post more fluidly, which may mean no posts for a week and 3 posts the next, ideally we will get in a quality post once a week but we will see how it goes. Summer doesn't last forever around here so if the sun is out we plan to be out enjoying it with our pups! How has the summer been affecting you all?

For as much snow as we got this year I have to say it is melting surprisingly fast. Alaska finally cleaned it's act up and has consistantly been in the 40's and 50's, which means a whole lotta sloppy trails and melting dog poo.

For all those who were concerned that Brodie in all his stocky cuteness was going to get snatched up while wearing his 'Adopt Me' Sirius Republic collar, fret no longer our boy got a much needed wardrobe update.
|Let the plotting begin!|
