Dog Days of Summer

We have been having a great summer so far! The kids are just at the age where they are a bit safer around water.  Meaning, with swimmies on, they won't drowned!  This has meant days and days at the pool already. We are all toasty brown and high on vitamin D! Loving summer!

Conrad has developed an unusual past time over the past few months, scouring Craigs list for pets.  I don't know why, but he spends much free time looking for dogs and tempting the kids into good behavior with promises of new furry friends.  Least you think his promises are in vain, and you aren't on my Facebook page...last week we got a dog!

He found a family nearby who had lost a job and was looking to "rehome" thier beautiful three year old Golden Retriever.  We went to see her with reminders to the girls that we probably wouldn't get her.  But, it was love at first sight.  She's very calm and friendly, and already very well trained.  She was inexpensive and in great health.  But, we love the well trained part best!  Her name is Kensie.  We kept her name, since she's three, but I decided her "real" full name would be Kensington, after Kensington Palace and the Queen's Year of Jubilee.  God Save the Queen!

I'm not sure who loves her more, the kids or Conrad.  Kensie gets up and walks ConradConrad gets up and walks Kensie every morning and night.  It's good excercise for both of them!   Happy to have this little addition to our familly!
