Back Together Again!

Hello.Hey, Bloggy Friends!!!

We are back from our weekend trip to Kentucky! I had so much fun. It was a quick visit, but I was able to see so many people that I love. I adore Kentucky in the springtime. The trees are so full, the grass is blue and the air is so warm and sweet. It was so good to get home to see my family. I love them all so much. I burst with pride whenever I think about how blessed I am to have them.

We spent Saturday in Lancaster, where my Mom fixed a delicious dinner for a bunch of people. She had a house full of my aunts, cousins, grandparents and friends of the family. It was great fun. Alan had a chance to meet a lot of people he hasn't had a chance to meet before.

On Sunday we got up and headed to Louisville to pick up Galileo! It was cute to see him running around with his sister, mother and aunts. From there we headed to my Dad's ex-wife, Dawn's, house. We had another delicious meal and hung out for a while with them.

Galileo is so well-behaved. He is tiny, at only two lbs! He was the runt of the litter. He has acclimated so well to being away from them. I'm guessing, since he was the smallest, he had a hard time competing with all the other dogs. Now, he has all the attention and I'm guessing he loves it. He hasn't so much as whimpered to be back with is family. He sleeps all through the night and he hardly made a peep on the way home! We definitely have ourselves a gem! He's precious and I love him to pieces. This is a picture we took of him in his crate at my Dad's apartment.

Below is another slideshow of pictures I took throughout the weekend. As you'll see, I didn't take too many. Stay tuned for videos that will chronicle our whole journey! You can click HERE for a closer look!

I sure missed you guys while I was away. It was nice, however, to close my computer and be free from it for a few days. I hope you all had a fantastic weekend. It did feel so good to be home. I think visiting in the summer is loads better than being there at Christmas - when everyone is too busy to stop and breath.

Have a great day, Bloggy Friends. We are trying to socialize our Mary Todd and Abigail with our newest addition. So far so good! At the moment they seem to be overwhelmed with curiosity. They mostly perch themselves in a place where he can't reach them, and watch as he barks and jumps around. It's so cute!

Love you all!

He is so cute! I'm glad you got to go back to Kentucky! It is fun being there in the Spring and Summer when it's much greener! Glad you had a good visit and a new addition.

On a sad note: Did you hear about one of our fraternity brothers? He was an active member and killed in a car accident last week. So sad! If you didn't get the email let me know and I will forward it.

Hey it's finally raining here! We definitely need it! Keep me posted.

Gailileo is adorable! I cant wait to see him grow. You know that the cats are just soaking it in for now... plotting how they will continue to rule the house.

BTW... the grass is blue in KY? I guess the bluegrass state does live up to it's nickname, eh? :)

Ohmygosh. I didn't expect you back so soon! I missed you terribly.

That's interesting that Galileo was the runt of the litter. That will probably give him some additional qualities. We chose our Scottie from her litter. She was sort of in-between the aggressive and the withdrawn ones.

What is that in Rick's nose?

Loved the family photos ... some really interesting portraits of your dad. One gets a sense of him from the different shots. Your sister is at the apex of perfect youthful beauty. It's like looking at photos of young Norma Jean or Edie Sedgwick.

Can't wait to see the videos and read the stories of Galileo! Looking at some of the photos, it was like everybody ws greeting a new grandchild!
