Jack and Rico: Best buds

Becky and Brandon had family in town during the 4th of July holidays.  They went to NYC and so we watched Rico!  Rico is scared of fireworks so Jack decided he would lay next to Rico to comfort him while he was scared!  Jack loved having Rico over for the weekend!  Here are some of the pics of them laying on the couch together:

Tired little doggies!  

July 4th!!

So as you probably guessed I am going back in time again!  Brent and I both had to work on the fourth but we were able to get off a little earlier.  So a few of us wives decided that we would meet the guys in Harrisburg, PA where they were working so we could go out to eat and see some fireworks!  For those of you who don't know, Harrisburg, PA is about an hour and a half away from where we live in Owings Mills, MD.  If the guys had come home, we would have missed all the fun!  

This first picture is of Alicia Jolley and I on the ride up there!  It is so much fun to spend time with the girls!  

So some single guys ended up coming and joining the fun too!  Here is all of us enjoying our meals!

After we ate we went to the river to enjoy the fireworks!  It was wonderful!  It was nice to be able to spend some time with our husbands!

Jack's First Swim - June 15, 2008

I know, I know, I am terrible at keeping this blog updated, but I am going to try harder.  

On June 15, we decided to go for a drive with the Brown's (Tasha and Ryan).  On this trip we were heading to the beach.....well the "beach" we went to you had to pay to go on and Jack couldn't come with us.  We didn't want to swim, but just walk along and enjoy the day.  After walking around the little boardwalk for a little while, we decided to just drive along the coast and find a free beach or a random private beach.  We ended up at a small resort type thing and enjoyed the beach there.  It was a beautiful day and we all enjoyed it.  

This picture is of Ryan and Tasha relaxing in the sun with us. 

Now at first, Jack was a little weary of the water because of the tide.  I think he thought it was alive!  But after he took his first step in, he LOVED it.  He jumped right in and went swimming.  Jack loves the beach!!! That is just perfect for us!

Of course, that was until he met a girl dog.....Brandy....Jack is such a little lover boy! Look at him fly through the air!  

Needless to say, our family loved the little day trip!
