It's Been Weird This Weekend

I'd like to blame the things that happened this weekend on the heat, but it has finally cooled off here so I have no good explanation. 

We went out of town for the weekend and my child traveled like this.

The mask smells like lavender, and it was 9 in the morning.  Even Aiden was confused by the lack of sticky hot heat.

Stella couldn't stop herself from wanting to drive and practice her dance skills. 

I found myself doing things like this.

I was also dragged around a river behind a boat and I felt old.  Oh so very old.

I also let my boys be dragged around behind a boat.  They loved it and felt full of life.  Punks.

When we got back in to town I was so confused to wake up to temperatures in the low 70s, which a beautiful breeze.  It messed with my brain.

It messed with my brain so much that I agreed to bring this in to my home....on a trial basis.
No, that is not a large rat. That is the dog we are trying out to see if he could fit in to our family...because I don't have enough going on around here.

So far he has peed several times around the house, escaped under our fence about five times, and howled at the door for the lady that dropped him off. 

He is really sweet though.  He doesn't yap.  He rolls on his back when the kids want to pet him.  He is nice to Indiana, even when Indiana is licking his back for cheese Stella threw down during dinner.  He could be a great dog.

His name is Boots, Cole wants to call him Six though, or Max.  Of course.

I figure that worse case scenario he's good blog fodder. It's always nice to have something else peeing on the floor to write about on the slow days.

Hope you all had a great weekend!

You will love having a dog. When no one else understands they do. Oh, and it doesn't hurt to have a piece of hot dog in your hand and on your breath to get a little extra loving. :P

Will you be able to tell the difference between the pee? What if the kids blame the dog? How will the dog defend himself? I'm worried...or not. It could be your ticket to new floors. Do you need new flooring? Just an throwing that out there...

*I do not need another baby. I do not need another baby. I do not need another baby* Maybe if I keep repeating that, I can stop this baby fever that seems to be rearing it's head lately, especially when I see cute videos like that one. I kind of miss having a baby girl around, they're just so different from boys. I'm not sure I could handle another girl past the baby stage though.
I'm really jealous of your weekend temps, it was freakin hot in Florida (but the humidity was almost non existent so that was a nice break).

Wow! Sounds like an eventful weekend. I wish we were adding a new dog to our pack, but for the moment, four will have to suffice. He IS cute.

Any dog that needs a disclaimer stating that they are not a rat is questionable in my book-says the lady with no pets :)
Sounds like you had a crazy/great weekend.
