Apparently…

Captain Riley says the coast is clear.

…we have a water dog on our hands.  Riley’s first boat ride occurred this weekend and he was smitten.  Once we found just the right spot to anchor at the Point, Riley wasted no time jumping in and doggy paddling his way into everyone’s heart.  Adorable.

Why am I not in the water yet? Hurry up, Mom!

This Monday marks the last week of my job and I am so excited to spend the next three weeks seeing everyone I can and squeezing as much quality time in with our loved ones as possible.  From August 13 and for 28 months following, I have been told to tell our friends and family that I am, generally speaking, “unavailable.”  For reals.  I know these next few months are going to be the hardest I’ve ever experienced in my life, but it will be worth it in the end!

Motorboatin’ is hard work.

And on an unrelated note, I am happy to report the Tar Heel saved yet another plant’s life. Our gardenia plant came back from the dead with great ferocity and the fragrant blooms offer a pleasant, Southern welcome  to our visitors.  This lovely plant lives on our porch and came to us as a house warming gift from my parents.  The Tar Heel saved it (as well as the majority of our plants) and I am so grateful for his green thumb.
