cape cod part II

the first part of the week had cloudy mornings followed by beautiful afternoons. we mostly hung by the house & frolicked in scargo lake when the sun showed up.
foster stood guard on our dock and chased away any waterfowl that dared swim by...

cape cod part I

we started out our vacation at a private beach in sandwich while waiting to check in to our rental cottage. it was a beautiful day & puppy had his usual amount of fun romping around the beach (as did we).
to make the day even more fun an 8 month great dane puppy showed up & was VERY interested in foster. i've never seen foster look so small before!
it was a lovely start to an amazing week!

we're back!

sorry for the brief hiatus folks. we were away on vacation last week down the cape. it was, in a word, AWESOME! but more on that later......
first a quick update on our last trip to maine. we went up for the annual family running of the beach to beacon 10K. pregnancy gave me a pass from running this year, can you hear the disappointment? :)
there were many fun activities over the weekend.....
kids fun run
the big race!
after all that fun we got to visit with my sis & her brood sunday. we took an early morning trip to pine point beach where dogs can run off leash before 9am! foster had loads of fun fetching a tennis ball in the surf & my nephews seemed to have an equal amount of fun throwing it!on top of all that puppy fun we got to see another muppet! she was a different color than puppy's girlfriend but equally cute...all in all it was a fun weekend!
more to come on our cape cod adventures...stay tuned!

have a good weekend everyone! we are off to maine yet again! this time for the annual family running of the beach to beacon 10K on saturday. puppy & i will be cheering everyone along from the sidelines this year, as i am just a bit too large for that kind of activity this summer. :)

bar harbor

last weekend we made the haul up to bar harbor, maine for the wedding of DH's college bud ryan. unfortunately we were only able to stay up there for 1 night so we didn't have time to visit acadia or do much else. :(
we did spend a couple hours in downtown bar harbor having lunch & strolling around looking at all the puppies. i had no idea bar harbor was so dog-friendly! there were dogs at the outdoor cafe we ate at, in the stores we went in (well it was a dog store-bark harbor), all over the streets & parks and our hotel was dog-friendly too! guess we could have brought puppy but i don't think he would have enjoyed the 5+hr drive each-way.
anyway, here's a few pics of the quick-visit & wedding.....

the bears meet again

last week i took a day off work (woohoo!) and drove down to CT to visit marisa & her norah bear with my puppy bear! you may recall from a post last winter that norah LOVES foster & they had a lovely visit together!
after some initial puppy excitement and subsequent trauma for the little bear she warmed right up and was all over foster in her usual norah fashion. pregnancy-brain reared it's ugly head & i forgot my camera. lucky for me marisa let me borrow hers & then sent these pics along for the sake of the blog. thanks marisa!!

it was a super fun day & we look forward to coming back this fall to meet the newest member of the family!
