Declan & Ruth

Last weekend we got to see Declan and his girlfriend Ruth for a few days, they stayed with us and we got to know his new girlfriend a little better.  It's always fun/crazy/exhausting/loud when Declan comes to stay. :)  We love him, though and are glad that he feels welcome to come for a few days...and hopefully to move up here in the near future!  Here's just a few pictures from that weekend, Ruth and I went to the farmer's market Saturday morning, hiked around our favorite spots, made a Goodwill run, and Declan shot a deer Saturday night- his first! (Sorry, no picture)

Sadly I only got pictures of the back of Ruth!

Buds :)

Bow Bow wanted to wear dad's scarf (it has a different name, but I can't remember it...I'm sure he wouldn't like me calling it a scarf!)

Fall Update

 Sorry it's been so long since I've updated! I've been pretty busy with work and just enjoying the last few warm days we have left.  The latest news is that we found 2 lumps on Bow the other week, so just to be safe we took him into the vet to have them removed.  That was yesterday, and he wasn't quite himself, because of the drugs and probably some pain, too.  Other than looking quite goofy now he's in much better spirits.

He looks pretty miserable

He was pretty drowsy, which is good, cause we don't want him opening up his incisions
He was feeling better by this morning and looking really bored of being cooped up with the cats, so I took him out for a nice walk on a beautiful fall day.

This is on a trail by Badwater Lake

A neat old bridge (out of service) that takes you across the lake to some trails

Bow looking a little happier...I had a hard time trying to keep him from chasing the chipmunks :)

In other news, we have officially gone from Immanuel Baptist Church to Redemption Hill, and thanks to Alex's creative design, now have this beautiful sign that is much more fitting to the size of the building. :) The old one was off centered and about the size of a twin bed, lol.  This picture is when they were still hooking up the wires for the letters, but you get the jist.
