Our friends and neighbors recently got a new puppy and my boys are smitten. They call Chloe the "Little Puff Ball" and beg to play with her nearly every day. If she happens to walk past our house, her owners know they will have to let her off her lease so she can run around with my boys before they can continue their walk. So...we invite Chloe over for play dates, frequently, and it is a great arrangement for both Chloe and my boys, both get positively worn out after a few hours.
My mom, sisters, Chandler and my boys and I went to the zoo to see the new splash pad. We had a great time. The weather was perfectly overcast so that all the crowds disappeared and we nearly had the zoo to ourselves.
