And this is my wonderful grandfather, and one of my favorite wedding pictures. This was just after the wedding and I hadn't had the opportunity to see him yet so I went over to give him a hug. When this picture was taken he was telling me that his marriage lasted over 60 years and he hoped that we could outlast them. Grandma had just past away 3 months before the wedding so it was an especially touching moment.

The water was beautiful and felt great. We got the boats in the water and some of us headed out while others stayed back and cooked. It was a great day of tubing, swimming, boating and hanging out. Until...around 5:00. The Chief called to say that the boat had broken down in the middle of the lake. We couldn't get ahold of anyone on the other boat. Someone on a jet ski (not with us) went out to tell the people on the working boat what happened and they went looking for them. An hour later, someone called to say they couldn't find them. When we left, 2 hours after it all started, the boat was being pulled in by a jet ski and our boat never found them. I was just happy I wasn't out on either of those other boats.
All in all, it was a wonderful day. The guys did a great job with the planning. The only thing missing was cups for the tea and gatorade which are believed to have fallen out on the way there. And my migraine went away before we got there.
I love that I've finally made some friends and know some people out here. It sure makes life much more fun.

And here are a few of my favorite pictures from throughout the week.
Sam hasn't quite figured out how to get onto the couch yet, so Frankie spends most of his day watching Sam while sitting on the couch with me.

We picked him up today. Anthony has been wanting his own "manly" dog since before we moved. I kept pushing it off until I would be able to be home during the day. So, now that it's summer, it was time for a dog. He's so happy to finally have "his" dog.
Being that it's Anthony's dog, he is requiring that I include all of Sam's aliases in my blog. (Don't ask...I don't know why a dog needs an alias.) So, here it goes...AKA Sammy Sanchez cuz he be in the streets (I don't get it either) AKA Sam the Magnificant AKA Big Paws McGee AKA the boxer formerly known as Speckled Nose
There were three guys to chose from and we chose this guy because of his cute speckled nose.
Here's our wonderful meal.
Aren't I a lucky woman?
*I can't get it to leave a space here and it's driving me crazy!

The one draw back...he was never neutered. It was no problem at first. We always are outside with him when he goes outside and he doesn't play with other dogs. Well, he started becoming slightly more "territorial" as we moved into our new apartment when we got married. Then, when we moved this past time, it got real bad. It was like he wanted everyone to know that EVERYTHING in this apartment was his. Well, we got tired of that real fast and Monday he was neuter. I felt awful taking him and worried about him all day. We even bought him a new toy to make up for what we had done to him. When he got home, he looked so pitiful. This is what we saw for 2 days...
I'm glad to report that now, he's doing much better. He runs around everywhere with this cow in his mouth. He'll even give me kisses now. So hopefully, he will continue to recover well and the problem will be fixed.
