We did the obligatory walk through the outdoor mall. Definitely not as impressive as the Town Center in Jacksonville but every town center has to start somewhere, right? It's been "unseasonably" hot here in Northern Alabama, so we didn't stay too long.
There are two dog parks that I know of here, and we wanted to take the dogs to one while Ashley was in town. The one we chose wasn't really impressive. Macey and Sofie were the only dogs there so it got old real fast, not to mention the fact that there wasn't a square foot of shade to be found. The dog park was right next to a little creek and when we got close, Macey ran right for the water! The water was crystal clear and cold. It felt so good! There were several other people and dogs playing in the water. It was fun to let them swim for a while. Macey loves swimming in lakes and ponds but that's kind of terrifying with the alligators all over Florida.
We've added a new edition to our family. This is Max. He's a Boston Terrier, born on Cinco de Mayo (neat fact: Macey's birthday is on Valentine's Day). We brought him home on July 3rd and he weighed 4 and a half pounds. Tiny!!
He's doing well with potty training, and knows how to sit and lay down already. He's nine weeks old in these pictures.
Macey is doing well with him. The first day we brought him home she totally ignored him, but as I type this they are sleeping next to me on the couch just like this.
|Precious! Macey loves having a sleeping buddy.|
