Summer 2013

Summer arrived at the Birdwell's Nest!  John got the pool up and running. He even got to enjoy it a bit before he set out for Sea.  John would spend his summer in the Indian Ocean! 

 In the mean time, Ellie and Sandy got some pool time!  The guys and i taught Ellie to get in and out of the pool using the ladder!  I'm sure Sandy will be  using it next summer as well!  Eva and Pickles are content to watch from the deck! Pickles doesn't do water and Eva only does warm water with bubbles and a double pedicure better come with it! 

 Ellie, sits in Dad's spot, patiently waiting for him to come home...

 and she waits.....Ian photo bombs....

A ball to push around the yard might help the time pass until Dad gets home...
 Arrick brought home a new buddy! Pickles!  She's a sweetie and loves to play and wrestle with Ellie!  She's a month older than Ellie so the youngin's do their tearing around outdoors!
 Naps with Ian are the next best thing to napping with Dad!
 Sandy takes a nap because watching those pups wears her out!
 Ian and his kitty Whiskers.....He loves his kitty!!
 We spent the summer working in the yard...helping pass the time until Dad gets home!

 Summer soon fades and I took Ian back to Mason.  We moved him into his apartment that he shares with his three friends.
 This is their living room.  New traditional dorm furniture! wooohooo!
 Ian collected coasters from  his trip to Belgium so he framed them for some wall decor'!
 Another shot of  his dorm, from the living room! Not a bad apartment for four guys!! He is on the ground floor and gets along very well with his roommates!

Arrick and I attended the Symphony in the park this fall.  They finished renovating our city park and it's so lovely to go to the Farmer's market and other events out there now!!  

 Arrick and Zach, wait for the music to begin!!  Sadly, a fierce thunder storm rolled through, and after only two sets, they cancelled the rest of the show due to the foul weather.

Dad's home!!!  John arrived home Mid September so we though it prudent to have the puppy reunion outside!!  I think the pups were glad to see Dad!!  only Sandy and Ellie made it out the door!  Eva and Pickles had their reunion indoors!
