The Truth About Super

This is the first installment in what I hope will be an ongoing series by James.


James' first birthday

James celebrated his first birthday at our old digs on Xenia Street.  Because our little duplex was so small, he said it was ok to skip the party as long as there was lots of chocolate cake.
And he did not want to share that cake with anyone--not even the best dog ever.
"Mmm, cake."
"I think I ate too much."
"Maybe I'll stop eating and play with it instead."
Ryan says, "Woo hoo!  More cake for me!"

Seth is working,
Darcy's playing,
and James is wrapped up in a blanket watching a Mythbusters rerun.

Darcy the water dog

Darcy is a most fearless puppy--except when it comes to water.   
 Up until today, she's been extremely reluctant to get her feet wet at the dog park.   
 Go, Darcy, go!
 Gaining confidence...
with every step!
 On the prowl. 
"Look at me!  I'm so brave!" 
Yay, Darcy!

New camera

I bought a new camera today.  
 I was so excited I didn't even wait to get home before I started taking pictures.
Of course when we did get home, Ryan and James forced me to take pictures of Basil.
 Rat kisses.
