Welcome Summer

We welcomed summer with arms wide open this weekend. It started with adding a new family member. Thorn, the lab hound rescue pup. He was part of a litter that was rescued from a TX kill shelter and after spying those big velvety ears, who could say no. While adding a pup has come with sleepless nights and a kit cat that is just not too pleased with us, he's all worth it. 
School is out, beach days have begun, strawberry shortcake made, and roadside flowers picked. Yesterday we found a beach that allowed dogs and decided it would be a beach day. There were not 1 but 2 scary bridges to drive over. The beach was perfect. We saw crabs in the water, got lots of sand on ourselves + the beach blanket, and enjoyed the sun. 
It's just the beginning of summer and we are already in love with it.
