Yeah, camping was a bust. It rained on the way there, it rained WHILE we were there, it thundered. We were determined to enjoy ourselves. After all, the weather was supposed to improve, and we had a day of indoor activities planned. Surely we could do that, and then we'd revel in the nice weather & go do the outdoor parks that we already had tickets for.
I just erased the big long dramatic recounting of our trip - let's just say it wasn't fun trying to keep everyone from touching the tent while it was raining, and Thursday morning we woke up with a puddle inside the tent, and the rain still falling. And that's when we decided to cut our losses & head home early.
However, we have been talking about getting a dog for a long time. Years, actually. Only in the last few months has it seemed like something we were really ready for, and so earlier this week we started looking out for people giving up their pets. And, without further ado, meet Abby!
I'm guessing that you'll hear PLENTY about our new family member - hard not to fall in love with a puppy, right? And she's particularly adorable, and mostly housetrained already (fist bump!)
OK, and a card before I go - I actually made quite a few on Thursday & Friday. Of course the weather was spectacular....
