Fun Weekend with Darold

Our friend Darold lived with us for about 3 months last winter when he moved from FL to DC for a new job. In February he found an apartment in northern Virginia, and for those who live in the Washington, DC metro area, its like living very far away (because of traffic). So, this weekend, he came up and stayed over- making for a weekend of fun- and our dogs, Dolly and Franklin were so happy to see Uncle Darold! - We drove over the Bay Bridge in Annapolis and went shopping in the outlets on Maryland's eastern Shore (although traffic was HORRIBLE getting over the bridge). We watched a GREAT MOVIE called "Percy Jackson and the Lightning Thief."
- Sunday after breakfast we had a nice long 3 mile dog walk, did some more shopping, had a great lunch at our friend Mike B's Dad's restaurant in Annapolis called "Eggscellence" and sat outside in the backyard for a couple of hours enjoying the cloudy, cooler weather. Darold played rope toss with our Weimaraner, Dolly - her favorite game, while Franklin explored the garden. We ended the day with another nice dog walk. Here are some fun photos from our weekend.





Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
