Fun Last Minute Picnic at Fort McHenry

This weekend we did a lot of things around the house, so when the Monday holiday (Labor Day) arrived - we had a nice breakfast outside (it was 60F at 7am!) on the back patio, then watered the new trees, did housework, walked the dogs and got a call from friends Steve and Jane who suggested a picnic @ Fort McHenry shortly thereafter! So, we gathered the dogs, treats, water, and grabbed lunch to bring. The temperature was about 85F and the cool breeze off of Baltimore Harbor made for a perfect couple of picnic hours. We also walked the dogs around the perimeter of the park and saw the new large visitor's center under construction. We posed for pictures in front of the Fort, as we have favorites taken there from 2006 and 2008. Seems like every 2 years we get great family photos taken there. This year was no exception (see below) and we got some great pictures of Jane and Steve! It made for a great and very memorable holiday.

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.
