|The girls were fab hula hoopers -- note -- no Moms even attempted to hula!|
The first few days were a bit smokey out due to a fire in the Okefenokee swamp -- thus, my morning photos look a little hazy and the sun took on a reddish glow. I did run -- well, walked more than ran -- every day (go me!) :) The day's activities ranged from beach time with sand creations and hula hoops, pool fun, crafts, bicycle-riding -- there was always something going on!!! There may have a bit of giggling happening too. Due to the extreme heat and humidity (heat index was 120 one day!), my hair went totally berserk. Yes, it's true, a collection was taken up for me to have a straightening process done!

|Maddy-- July 4, 2011|
We had a fun 4th of July!
We spent the day doing a few things around the house, buying firecrackers, going to the pool and taking Miss Muffy for walks. Our sweet neighbors organized a little get-together which was wonderful and then we watched a fireworks show put on by their daring teen sons and other neighborhood kids. How I remember fondly (HA HA HA) the days when my two boys were blowing things up! Funny (and nice) how much less we spent on fireworks this year for Maddy as compared to the years with the boys at home!

This time last year, we had just met our sweet pup Muffy. She was only about 8 weeks old. Oh my, she was the most adorable of pups. Funny how I have forgotten (not really) all the time I spent getting up during the night with her to take her out, protect her from opossums and urge her to go potty quickly. Of course, those months passed by quickly (who am I kidding -- last summer was the longest ever!!) and now, she is the best little Scottie. Have heard Scottie's described as little dogs with BIG personalities -- that fits her to a T! She was a teensy 4 pounds when we met her last July and now full grown at almost 16 pounds. She loves to be outside guarding the house and yard from naughty squirrels and rabbits. She even caught a trespassing mouse a month ago! Yay Muffy!

Evidently, I was seriously negligent in some July 4th festivities in past years. When attempting to put this together, I had to search high and low for these photos and they start in 2007. Oops -- oh well, promise to do better in the future!
Sweet little black and white from 2008!
