Time for All Good Dogs to Get a Bath!

This past Friday our two big pups managed to bust out of the backyard via a weak plank in the neighbor's fence, whose yard is not entirely fenced in, mind you.  After their little escapade through the neighborhood, they came back through the broken fence, worn out and smelling all the worse for wear!  Closer investigation showed that Wrigley had taken a roll in something of a questionable nature....and thus, bath time!!!  

See how the boys are "helping"??

He's absolutely precious.  Oh, and Wrigley is, too!

Well, one thing leads to another, and the next thing you know, there's three wet guys in the driveway.

I used LuLu as a "hairdryer" of sorts...she ran Wrig until he'd pretty much dried off.

Is that not just the most handsome doggie you've ever seen or what?!!

Well, now that it's all said and done, I wonder if Wrig would say their little "walk-about" was worth it.  Probably, he'd do it all over again if he had a chance.  Sometimes, I guess fences are made to be mended.

Snowshoeing the Rockies!!!

 We had the best time going snowshoeing during our weekend in Colorado!  It was something that none of us had done before, and the boys were big fans to say the least.  I can't get over how beautiful it is out there!  I can only hope for those who live there and are surrounded by the mountains and the tall cedars and running streams all the time that familiarity hasn't numbed them to the fact that this place is a wondrous spectacle.  It truly has the fingerprints of our Creator all over it! 

 It's a rare thing that I'm in a photo with the boys since I'm usually the one taking them!  Hunter obliges me every now and then and switches places with me.
Sawyer is snow ball ready!!!

 See what I mean??  Absolutely breath-taking.

 The guys pause for a moment to look over the landscape as we make our way uphill.  And of course, Sawyer sees this as the perfect time to make another snow ball!

I must say, my guys are quite photogenic!

 Uh oh!  Hunter takes a dive!

Ethan took this photo as we were leaving.  Looks like it's straight from the cover of Country magazine.  He may have a future in photography!
