Weekend fun

We went up to Bellingham this weekend to celebrate Keron's birthday. We also spent a day with Addie, Cary, and Conan. It was fun to see everyone and to let the kids play around. The dogs had a great time charging around in the country, and everyone slept good last night.
The boys created a track for the dirtbike and quad so it was some good ol' redneck fun at grandmas.

Moira went out with Addie and picked flowers to give Grandma for her birthday, the bouquet ended up as big as her.

Zoned out on the couch with uncle Abe after a long day.

Moira gets to do art projects with mommy as a special treat when Kiah is asleep. On this particular day their naps were a bit off and while I was laying Moira down Kiah discovered that I'd left out the paints. What fun . . . I guess I'll have to figure out some little art projects for miss Kiah.

More summer fun

We went to a renessance fair on sunday and the girls had a great time. Moira was really into it and whooped and hollered at all of the acts and danced her little buns off. I even managed to whip up some fairy princess skirts sat night. Moira was really into the pirate booth, which had a collection of swords for the kids to play with. She was quick to go for the killing blow.

yeah for August

July was a busy, busy month. So I'm very happy that August has arrived. My little frisbee dog contest somehow balloned into a massive canine festival. It was very stressful and way to much work for free. In the end I was happy when I looked up and saw it was a success, but I will only be managing the frisbee aspect of the event in future years and leave the rest to the city and the local off-leash dog group. We ended up with around 1000 people at the event and made the front page of the local paper.

Suki took third place in the novice division of the Disc competition, which was quite an improvement over our finish in 2008, dead last. It's a little embarassing when the event host comes in last. In addition to that Suki and Kess finished 1st and 2nd respectively in the clean your plate dog food eating contest, and Kess has the 3rd best tail wag in Kirkland. All of our contest winnings added up to some new dog toys and $50 worth of gift certificates at the local pet store. I was so busy that I took almost no pictures, but you can see a few here, plus a video put together by another club member.

All that's left is to put together notes for who ever handles the event in 2010 and a quick presentation for city council, where we hand over the check for the fundraising effort. I don't have the total, but it's somewhere around 5k.
