It has been a crazy (AWESOME) past week so I thought it would be fun to do a recap post!
The Whirlwind of the Last Week and a Few Food Pics too
This little man had a BUSY WEEK! He started puppy school on Monday! We'll do Monday nights for the next six weeks - he did pretty good! Although he was the ONLY pup to pee on the floor..haha
We have been working on tricks at home this week and he is already laying down..and making eye contact better!
annnddd he had his first puppy race and we had our first family race!!!
There was a race cap of 500 dogs and although they didn't max it out it had had to be close. SO MANY DOGS. We thought Hank would go nuts and he was pretty rambunctious for the first 10-15 minutes but then finally mellowed out! He even would go up to tiny dogs and be super gentle! I was a proud mama :) -
It was a blast! I couldn't stop laughing. The course was a mile and a half and there was even a water and treat station! It was HOT and Hank kept wanting another refill - thankfully other dogs shared with him... haha He was soooo hot when we were done that when we got home Brendan filled his ice house sled with hose water and Hank went nuts jumping around in there! He is going to LOVE the lake!
of course we all got medals! And even a puppy bandana which is ADORABLE. I loved the human medals which on the back it says "true friends leave paw prints on your heart." I would DEFINITELY do this event again -
The Fargo Marathon really has exploded! The whole week is filled with events - the Cycle marathon, pup run, kids run, 5k, 10k, half marathon, marathon relay and the marathon! Fargo is where I finished my first full marathon - and will always have a special place in my heart...although I thought I might die that day...
I finally got to meet this beauty last weekend! My best friday Kari had Everly seven months ago and I am JUST NOW meeting this little beauty!! I seriously didn't want to put her down..SUCH a good girl too!!! LOVE being her "auntie Marti"
Seriously ... how AMAZING is my fiance?? He got the flooring finished last weekend and I LOVE IT. It looks AMAZING!!! Does anyone else have the vinyl plank flooring? How has yours held up?
some food pics from the week! Been trying to keep things simple so that we have stuff ready to go - this summer is bound to get crazy between wedding planning, other weddings and the lake!
