Summer fun

This summer has been going by so fast! One of the highlights was when RAunt Stacy, RAunt Wendy, Grandma Jan, and my Rousin Alexis were here for the Tulip Time festival. I got to go to the craft fair with everyone. Raunt Wendy took a picture of Mom, Dad and I that I just had to show off in this blog. Other dogs barked at me while we walked around the fair but I didn't mind. I just ignored them. One of the booths had water set out for me. I am not sure how they knew I was coming. We also went for a walk on my favorite trail. Of course, Raunt Wendy took some more pictures and I picked one of my favorites to share with you. I am with my Dad on one of the overlooks, and yes, Alexis helped me put on my Vikings bandana. Go Vikings! One of my favorite places is the beach. Alexis and I played on the beach while we waited for the sun to set over Lake Michigan. I am not sure where the sun goes but it comes back in the morning and then I am happy again. Yup, you guessed it, Raunt Wendy was taking pictures again. I loved this picture of Alexis and I after we ran around on the beach.

This summer I also got to go to Minnesota. Thankfully Mom and Dad didn't give me any of that medicine that makes me feel funny during the drive. We went to Minnesota during the fourth of July to visit with my grandparents and I saw my first fireworks show. That was what Daddy called it anyway. Some of them were really loud and made it difficult to catch some sleep. It was way past my bedtime you know. When we came home we brought my Rousin Alexis back with us. Mom and Dad thought I liked to play but she goes non-stop. It has been a lot of fun playing and wrestling with Alexis. My other Rousin Ceri and her friend Katy visited for a weekend the other week and rumor has it that Grandpa Dale and Tami will be coming next weekend. I can't wait. Last time they were here Grandpa Dale wasn't feeling well and I couldn't jump on him despite my best efforts. I will definately make up for it when they visit this weekend. I can't wait to show off my new bike trailer and bike leash either. I haven't been the biggest fan of the trailer yet but Mom and Dad say that I will get used to it. I will be sad when Grandpa Dale and Tami leave because they will be taking Alexis with them.
