I hope you guys are ready for some epic pictures of JP at the park.

  • Mom: I feel so bad for Toven.
  • Me: What? Why?
  • Mom: While you guys are out hiking and having fun, he's stuck at home! Alone! The poor little guy! He must feel so sad, waiting for you guys to get home.
  • Me: I'm sure he enjoys his alone time. We leave plenty of toys for him to play with.
  • Mom: No, I think he must get lonely.
  • Me: Should we put him on a leash and take him hiking?
  • Mom:, I guess not. Poor little Toven...

My mom said the same thing. I totally didn’t even think about it, but he does.

I told you guys I needed a professional captionist! I was so miffed at Kevin for hiding and “ruining” my shot…. I have failed you all with my subpar captioning.

Papa wanted to hide behind the sign while I was trying to get pictures.

(from our 4th of July hike!)

Went hiking again this morning. JP had a blast! We had never gone the full-length of this one trail… we had no idea what we were in for! We were scrabbling over rocks along the side of the river, thinking, “have we lost the trail???” But every time we thought that we’d see another trail marker. JP loved it. The corgi who wants to be lifted onto the sofa could suddenly do a vertical 4ft jump up onto slippery rock. We had trouble keeping up with him!

And, because we are terrible parents, we took him to petco for a bath afterwards. The horror!! But I think he still had a good morning.

Happy Fourth of July!

What a great 4th of July! We got up early and went to a state park. The weather was nice and overcast and we had a blast. There weren’t a lot of people on the walking trail but people were already out claiming tables and getting their grills set up at 9am. Pics soon!

I also went ahead and invested in a year-long park pass so that we don’t have to pay for parking. The GA pass is $55 and you get a free round of golf or a free night of camping, as well as some other discounts. Since we go to parks a lot (and all the ones near atl charge for parking) it’s an awesome investment and I’m kinda really excited about it. I look forward to rolling up with my sunglasses on and be waved through the gate like a boss.

These jerks would rather snuggle with each other than join me in the loft. I have food! Please love me!!


why do girls have fake pockets when guys can fit a laptop in theirs

Someone found the cupcake corgi picture again… we’re up to 46K! Insane!

I took this picture after we got home from dropping Kevin off at work. JP refused to get out of the car that day.

I was sitting on the floor with JP, reading a magazine, when I saw Toven get up and start walking towards us. I knew he could only have one motive - to sit on my magazine. But before Toven had the opportunity to, JP jumped to the rescue…. and sat on my magazine before his brofur could.

Thanks, JP.

PS: it was a pet supply magazine.

While I’m in the kitchen, JP is napping and Toven is lurking.
