Happy Monday everyone! Yesterday, after a long but awesome weekend of church and concert house activities (I know, I need to do an update on the concert house we have now at our church building! I just started an Instagram for it at voyageconcerthouse if you’d like to follow along), we took our hardworking precious family for an afternoon of soaking in some sun and fun. And Jack got to come along! Best day ever for him!
It is not every day we get such a warm sunny spring afternoon in the NW, so we took advantage of every second we could! We drove up to Poulsbo after church on Sunday and enjoyed a little fun time on the waterfront before our girls had to head back to their homes, school and life. I’m always so grateful they come home every weekend to help us with the church and we get to savor a little time together as a family, especially on those rare times we get to have fun in the sun!
My son was super excited to climb this giant rock. Highlight of the afternoon for him!
I love seeing boys and dogs OUTSIDE! Nothing better than that.
We took Jack down by the water and while he enjoyed it, he was also somewhat terrified of walking down there. He was dragging his feet all the way down and basically crawling as low to the ground as he could. Wish I had a picture of that, he looked ridiculous. We laughed so hard! I think he thought he was walking the plank to his death or something. HA! Once we turned around to come back from the water he practically ran the entire way back up to the park.
I don’t know if I’ve mentioned this before but Jack is a scared-y cat.
I suppose it is because he is still a puppy but lots of new things make him nervous. He is a big baby.
I love seeing the breeze blowing gently through his crazy hair. This was really the first time we’ve taken him on a big family outing outside. He loved it! He is a real family dog.
Jack was a real hit at the park. Lots of people stopped to admire him and talk to him, but we had to keep him on a short leash because he kept wanting to take off running with other dog friends he met. He would have loved to have been set free to explore.
It was great to give him a new opportunity to learn about how to greet people without knocking them over and how to meet new dogs, too. He is definitely still learning his manners, but he is getting better.
There were lots of great trees to climb! We don’t have climbing trees in our yard at home so clearly the tree and the rock were big hits.
On the way home Jack snuggled up to his sister. He always loves to sit super close to his family, usually with his paw on you, or at home he likes to sit right in your lap and chew on his toys. In spite of all the trouble he causes around our house, he is a sweetie.
Now that Easter and Spring break are over, I’m ready to dive back in and finish up my home office! Except that I also have to finish my taxes this week. Nothing like the last minute, right? Grateful to have our own businesses but not so excited about writing tax checks.
Hope you all had a blessed Easter and spring break!
