July 4

This past weekend was great! My weekend really only lasted about one day, the 4th, and I slept for quite a bit of it. But between studying I would allow myself to go out by the pool and watch my mom and Winston play in the pool. I also broke down and sobbed on Sunday… so that was great. Good times this weekend…

All of these pictures are basically of Winston but let’s be honest. I looked haggard and weepy for the majority of the weekend and I couldn’t wear eye makeup until today (because of lasik) so who wants to see a picture of me? I don’t! But everybody wants to see handsome Winston!

Winston also has an obsession with these plastic balls… he whines when he can’t get at them! Check out this video of how we play volleyball with him!

He used to be super afraid of the water because he’s not a very good swimmer, hence the life-jacket in a majority of the pictures but he got more and more bold this weekend so we made him practice swimming, sans training wheels, across the pool. He’s no Phelps but he does a damn fine doggie paddle! (And apparently I have this weird giggle at the end of each video…)

I hope your 4th of July was fantastic! Did you get to relax?

    Awww I just love seeing pictures of Winston and those videos are adorable too. I miss my bulldog so much. They’re great dogs. I always thought they didn’t swim well but Winston looks like he was doing pretty well for a bulldog!
