For those of you who might be thinking that we aren't looking 100% thrilled about our celebratory headgear, well, you would be right. Abby is
|Me trying to get this accursed hat off my head, while Abby continues to be a total suckup.|
So take my word for it; we are all really happy about Dad's birthday! And we were even happier when the hats and tiaras came off!
Dad's Mom and his sister surprised him with a weekend visit for his birthday, and while we weren't included in some of the festivities (Mom took Dad to dinner at a fancy steakhouse Friday night where his Mom and sister showed up out of the blue and totally surprised him!), it looks like everyone had a great time!

Of course there was 'khake'. Well, technically, brownies, but it's the same idea. And it's a good thing they sell those number candles, as I doubt our Mom could have fit sixty candles on the pan of brownies!
Happy birthday, Dad! And you know we love you when we will wear silly headgear for you!
When Mom and Dad weren't doing birthday things, Abby and I took advantage of our warm weather, and our melting snow (we've got to enjoy it while we've still got it!).
|Mom is really keen on these 'running at you' photos, so don't be surprised if you see a lot of them!|
|"I have a frisbee for you! "|
|I mentioned that Mom likes these photos, right?|
|Abby is a very long dog....|
|And she's got great ear flappage!|
|"Hi, Mom. I have another frisbee for you!"|
When we aren't chasing frisbees, we are tolerating Mom's photo efforts. Her latest 'thing' is to learn more about lighting, so she's been taking a lot of photos of us using an 'off-camera flash'. Whatever. It involves a white umbrella that we are given treats to sit in front of...
|Mom LOVES these 'soft light' photos!|
|One of Mom's all-time favorites!|
We've had a Very Busy week! And we're ready for a nap!
