Never Let A Dog Lick You

Those of you who know our dachsund know that he is a pretty rambunctious little guy. He has lots of energy and is always finding new ways to get into trouble. Since my parents live outside the city, Pedro has found all sorts of critters to chase around, including their cat. A couple of days ago, he surprised us all with his latest adventure. Brace yourself for this one:

I have to say that it was the single most disgusting experience I've had in a long time. The little monster killed a squirrel, ate the squirrel, and regurgitated its guts all over my mom's rug! How's that for disgusting? It was hands down the MOST revolting mess I have ever had to clean up-and Pedro makes a lot of messes! Needless to say, I haven't let Pedro lick me since then, and I don't know if I will ever be able to get those images out of my mind. I have had nightmares for the past two nights. Oh well-he's our Pedro and we still love him-squirrell guts and all.

Vacation With The Barrow Family

This past week, we were able to go to Gulf Shores in Alabama with the Barrow Clan. We had loads of fun playing on the beach, relaxing at the pool, playing putt putt, and just hangin out together. For those of you who are unfamiliar with my in-laws, let me just say that they are one lively bunch of people. That is definitely an understatement! When we are with them, it seems there is never a dull moment. Sure they are a little crazy at times, but we wouldn't have it any other way! Here are a few pics of our week.

Fun at the beach. Brooke wore herself out and fell asleep in Amy's arms.

Annabeth spent lots of time in her carseat and did amazingly well.

Playing putt-putt together. Brent beat everyone twice!
