4th of July Weekend

We had a great 4th of July weekend filled with family, fun and lots of sun!

We spent the weekend with Mr. B's parents at their lakehouse and we spent the actual 4th with my family. 

We started off Saturday morning modeling our newly made festive bandana/collar....

And a little play/action session....

Took a break, had breakfast and got ready for a day on the boat
The door on the boat broke and Roxie that it was custom made just for her
Mr. B went jet skiing
Then took Roxie for a "swim" in her new life jacket

{this is Roxie begging him to pick her up and Mr. B's face of pain as her nails kept scratching his chest}
She calmed down a little bit....
Right before a full force doggie paddle

We let her relax a little bit and then took her out on another adventure
A kayak ride!
I think she enjoyed it, she seemed to pretty content just floating around.
They looked so cute and peaceful until prego momma decided to join in on the fun...
It didn't quite look the same.

Here I am yelling at Mr. B that we are sinking, that Roxie and I are sitting in the water. 
He didn't believe me and I am partially thankful to have pictures to prove it, but also umm..
slightly embarrassed.

We were able to get a cute family shot after I realized this whole kayaking experiencing was nothing like what I had pictured in my head.

After a long day, filled with many new adventures Roxie cuddled up with Mr. B and his battle wounds.

{And next year I won't have to have a 4th of July post about my dog because we will have a little girl!! :) } 

Monday was really relaxing, we lounged around in the pool for most of the day, Mr. B read his book on the hammock 

And the girls wanted to have a little photo shoot..

{Olivia didn't know what to do with her hand, ha!}

Had to get a picture of the 3 amigos in their matching bandanas

And us girlies in with our matching headbands

Then we headed off to the fireworks

And Roxie wasn't phased one bit.

We love long weekends and time with family :)

And I think that's enough pictures to last me until next week...maybe next year.

Looks like you had a fantastic weekend and that pic of you all in the kayak makes me laugh!!!

Great pictures!!!

Allison said...

I was seriously laughing out loud to myself at the kayak pictures. So fun!

The kayak pictures had me cracking up. Glad you had a fun fourth! :)

Ashley said...

The kayak pictures are TOO funny! I'm glad you got a picture of it. It will make a great story for your daughter and thankfully you weren't even farther along! :) And yes, the posts and pictures about the dog become few and far between after baby arrives. You should see our phones. Picture after picture of the dog and then BAM! Brayden was born and not a single one. Unless Brayden is also in the picture. Opps. :)

It's been a long while since I've checked in on your blog. Having a baby really cuts down on my blog time. ;) In fact, you might not even remember me...but I also have boxers. And now a new (but maybe not so new since she's almost 10 months now) little girl. Anyway, it's been a while...and I know this because the last time I read your blog, I don't think you were pregnant!! So congrats!! It's the best thing ever! And you are right, next year you will blog less about your dog and more about baby. My dogs do still make it into some blog posts, they just always include the baby girl... :)
