A Nice Mother's Day

It was a very relaxing Mother's Day - and the weather was perfect - about 72F today with sun and clouds. After a nice breakfast at Panera Bread, we walked the dogs, shopped at Lowes for more home improvement stuff, returned home and walked the dogs - and called Rob's nephew Scotty who was celebrating his birthday (but he was out celebrating with his family). Tom worked on upgrading the seal around the patio most of the afternoon while Rob cooked chicken and rice for the dogs (2 out of 3 not feeling well), gave the dogs their medications, etc. We celebrated the day with Tom's parents at our favorite Mexican restaurant and had a nice dessert at home, followed by another dog walk.

Sprite picked a shady spot on the lawn to relax all day!

Tom connected 3 separate garden beds to one long nice one!

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.
