My new friend

This is Lily. She's my new friend in TN. Since we are staying at her house temporarily, I've had lots of time to get to know her. I really like her, and I think she really likes me.
She lets me pet her and snuggle up to her. She always waits outside me room until I come out and play with her.
She likes to lick me and that makes me laugh. Sometimes, I share my dinner with her-especially the green beans. Shelby, if you are reading this, don't worry. You are still my favorite puppy.

I'm learning how to climb...
and pull the drawers out to peek inside and pull everything out.

Oops! Mommy caught me red-handed. How could you get upset with this cute face?

A Splashing Good Time

More good times at the pool. I really love to be in the water, and I like splashing and having water on my face and head.

Mommy's Trip without Me

Mommy took a trip to Michigan all by herself last weekend. Can you believe that she went without me? Well, I had lots of fun with Daddy and Perpy, so I guess it was okay that she left me behind. Here are a few pictures that explain why she was gone.
Mommy spent time with my girlfriends, Gretchen and Emma, and their mommy. They went to Dairy King for ice cream. Boy, was I sad that I missed that. I also miss my friends a lot.
Here's baby Madison-Auntie Marie's baby girl. Mommy got to spend lots of time with Maddie and her mommy. Mommy said she's really cute and sweet. I can't wait to meet her and play together.
Auntie Jenn, the beautiful lady in the middle, is getting married soon. So, there was a special party for the girls in the wedding. Auntie Jenn will make a very pretty bride. She said I am invited to the wedding, but mommy thinks I should stay at home. I wonder why-a wedding sounds like lots of fun.
Auntie Jenn, Auntie Marie, Maddie and Mommy had fun spending time together. We miss all of our friends from Michigan.

Daddy and Mommy got a bubble machine for me. Boy, is it fun!

Fun in the Sun

Nana came to visit this past week. Even though I got a cold and ear infection while she was here, I had so much fun with her. We went to the park, she watched me swim in the pool, she fed me lunch and dinner, and we played a lot. Thanks, Nana, for loving me even when I was grouchy because I was sick. I love you!

Cousin Will got in the pool for the very first time this week. He really likes it like I do, so we'll spend lots of time together in the water this summer. Going swimming is much more fun when you have a buddy with you.

A Day at the Lake

Last weekend, we went out on Uncle Tim's ski boat. The boat went really fast, and at first I was a little scared. Then, I realized how fun it was to zoom across the water. I also got to go swimming with Daddy.

Do you like my life jacket? It's a special one just for little guys like me and my cousin.
After all that swimming and boat riding, I got really tired.
