What An Awesome Memorial Day

What a day we've had! Asta, Sophie and Stanley didn't arrive at our house till around 1:30PM and by that time it had gotten kinda warm and kinda late to hike Sleeping Giant but we had a wonderful time anyway!
I welcomed Sophie! Mom was a wee bit nervous how the two older girls would get along! No problem! Sophie is a doll! And Stanley and I had lots to chat about!
And we think that Mitch and Asta remembered each other and it's been almost 2 years since they've seen each other! We didn't get a picture of the initial meeting! There was just too much excitement all at once!

We went for a short walkie as soon as everyone said their hellos so we could all calm down and do business!
Stanley and Sophie couldn't wait to jump in the brook and get wet!
What a goober! Why would anyone want to lay in that water? It's wet!
It wasn't long before mom brought out lunch! Geez, it was after 2PM! Poor Asta was starving to death! We all were!
I have to tell you all a secret! I am in love with Sophie! I never wanted to be away from her side! She is just gorgeous and the most regal Queen! Can you see the admiration I have for her?! We're going to have to share, Joey! Okay?!
Is she beautiful or what?! Her eyes are incredible! She is so much prettier in person!
And then there is Stanley! Is he the most handsome boy you have ever seen? What a personality this guy has! I need to tell you another secret! Mom is in love with Stanley! She couldn't keep her hands off him! He is just so darn sweet!And then there's Asta! Is she the cutest most happiest dog you've ever laid eyes on?! Know what? She's a talker just like me! She told Mitch off too many times to count! haha Thanks, Asta!
Sophie's mom was passing out watermelon!
And then came the popcorn!
And there were pressies..................
Only mom says that we're going to wait until tomorrow to open them because we are zonked!
We'll blog about those another day!
Thank you so very much to Asta and her mommi and daddi and Stanley and Lisa and Sophie and Sherry for coming down to to visit us! We had one fabulous Memorial day that we'll never ever forget! That was sure fun!

So until next time................

Love ya lots,

Maggie and Mitch

Sophie Brador said...

M & M, Thank you so much for letting me run around all over the place and lay about on the grass. Thanks for all that watermelon and popcorn. It sure once good. As soon as we got to NY, I collapsed on my bed and have been snoring ever since. Mom says thank you for being such wonderful and amazing hosts. We had a great time.


P.S. Maggie, Even though I didn't really show it, I was secretly so flattered that you loved me so much. I don't think Joey will mind too much. Mom thinks you're a doll! And she has a big crush on Mitchy too.

You two are the best hostess & host! You made sure we all felt at home, you gave us a tour of you FABulous estate (especially that creek ~ I couldn't get enough of it), and I SWEAR I would have stayed there to live with you if my girl would ever let me out of her sight! I had such a BLAST I didn't want to leave.

Mitch, thanks for wearing Asta out. She loves a good game of chase. Maggie, thanks for showing me around and for letting me get all wet even though you don't like to.

PLEASE give your mama and your dad big juicy goob smooches from me! I love them and would gladly come be their #3 Dale anytime they say the word!

Goober love & exhaustion,
