The dog days of summer are here!

Well, Memorial Day has come and gone, it's 80 and humid outside with thunderstorms on the way, my toes are painted, my skin is sunburned, and yesterday I shoved my face full of clam strips and strawberry shortcake so I think that can only mean one thing: summer is officially here!

I hope everyone had a wonderful holiday weekend. Mine was fantastic. Friday night we had a girl's night at nyrclooch's house and I got to meet her new baby, Emma. Isn't she the cutest?

She is a bundle of 18-week-old Lab puppy energy though. We had fondue and cupcakes and lots of girl talk. We took Emma for a nice long walk on Saturday morning and then went to get pedicures.

Saturday evening, foreverseenstar and I went to visit jadziadaxwb and _mendon. We played lots of Mario Kart (dude, it's so much harder on the Wii) and watched all the puppies play in their new pen.

The little one is Giselle, their newest Fidelco foster puppy. Spock, the other German Shepherd, is their other foster. The psycho black lab is Toby, who belongs to their neighbor. Spock and Toby ran around and tackled each other like a bunch of crazies. Giselle kind of stayed out of the fray and I kind of thought that was the best idea, too.

Note to self: Never own a black lab. Or a puppy.

Sunday I tried to be productive, but it didn't really happen. EB and I went to go see The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. I thought it was absolutely fantastic. I think I might actually like it better than the first one. So good. If you liked the first one, definitely go see this one, too.

Monday, clarkdreams came back down, this time with her puppy, Parker. They accompanied Champagne and I to Harkness Memorial Park where we met up with nyrclooch and Emma. It was literally the most perfect day for the park, especially Harkness which is right on the water. It's one of my favorite places. Here are some pictures just to show you how gorgeous the area is:

Unfortunately they no longer let dogs on the beach, but I think they did fine just the same. All the dogs had a blast, and I think Champagne might've even been more active than the puppies were.

Champagne and Emma are chillin' like villains.

Parker plays tug-o-war and Champagne is thrilled with his ball.

Parker and Emma tussle. (Parker's face cracks me up in these pictures!)

Champagne went at that ball for hours! Eventually Emma helped him pop it.

Tired puppies!

All of them were so well behaved. Champagne and Parker were angels on the car ride home. clarkdreams and I stopped for some seafood (it's like a crime not to when you're ON THE OCEAN) and some delicious ice cream (a great rec from nyrclooch) on the way home and finally everything started feel like summer.

I finished off the weekend with strawberry shortcake with foreverseenstar and EB. I went to bed really early but somehow I could not drag myself out of bed today. I'm blaming the sun... Ugh, epic amounts of work to catch up on cause it's a short week. Worst part of long weekends? Going back to work when they're over. :( Later, skaterz.

I love how Parker looks like evil demon dog. I guess he just likes it rough :) Can't wait to see you Saturday!
