Happy 4th of July

(And no, I'm not going to comment about how it's been something like 87 days since our last post....)

We (mostly) cooperated for Mom's 4th of July photo. I don't know why Daisy insisted on sitting beside me. I mean, does she not get that I'd prefer to be a bit farther away from her?!?

You will notice that we have had our furs trimmed, making the youngsters crazier and more aerodynamical than usual!

I prefer to stay on the sidelines next to Mom when the kids get their crazy on!  But I have been swimming, and will go swimming tomorrow, so lots of quality, youngster-free time for me!  (Mom has more photos of me swimming, but she's scrambling to get a bloggie post out in a somewhat timely manner!)

Lookit me using my leggies!
In other excitement, while we were having our furs trimmed, Mom and Dad played around with some 'big dogs'.  As some of you may know, Dad has been quite the horseman, but Mom has never ridden a horse in her life (at least not on her own and not without holding the lead).  They picked us up from the groomer after their ride, and seemed to be very happy and tired, and are looking forward to doing it again!

Dad and Clark getting the Big Dogs ready. (Mom has no idea what to do, so she took photos and tried to stay out of the way!)

Dad's in the cowboy hat, long-time family friend and Best Man at Mom and Dad's wedding, Clark, is in the baseball cap.

The horse Mom was to ride is on the left - Jackie (the horse) had been tested by Clark's grandkids, so they figured Mom could probably manage...

Mom and Dad (and yes, Mom is wearing a helmet because her coordination - or lack thereof - is legendary)

Mom, the back of Paco's head (the horse Dad was riding) and lots of scenery.

A quick break to make sure Mom hadn't fallen off! Heehee!

They had a good time, and we enjoyed getting cleaned up and trimmed for summer, so all is good!

Have a safe and happy holiday!
