This Is Where It All Begins

This Is Where It All Begins

Thursday, July 17, 2008


So, we have two new additions to our family. One is our tadpole, which we have had for a while, but he now has sprouted legs!!! He was the weirdest looking creature ever and now he is just flat out ugly! His little legs are kind of cute though.
We were in Wal-Mart looking for yet another goldfish, and we found these cool tadpoles. We had to bring one home. It is pretty amuzing watching him mutate into all sorts of funny looking things.

We also have a gold fish in the tank, but he was camera shy. The fish's name is Raddy and the tadpoles name is Taddy. Yes, Mary named them.
The picture isn't the best, but you get the idea....right?

The other addition is our DOG!!!!

We have been waiting FOREVER to get a dog. Finally, we have a yard, so first thing first, we must have a dog to put in it. Our family is now complete. ;)
We looked at a lot of dogs but he was the one for us. We are sooooooo excited! Wahoo!
He is a lab/husky mix (isn't that a rad mix). We got him three days ago. We totally scored and got him for free. He is adorable and we love him!! His name is Chamonix (sha mo nee). If any of you have seen any Warren Miller movies, it should sound familiar to you.
We have really wanted a dog to take running, hiking, walking, swimming, ect. We are pumped! I took him on a 5 mile run this morning thinking that it would totally wear him out. After 5 miles of being drug all over town (he has the husky instinct to pull, and I am suprised my arms are still in the sockets), I came home exhausted and he was still ready to party!! Looks like we found the right dog.
Who knows, maybe we could hook him up to the car and save on gas. hhhhmmmmm
p.s. His eye was watering when I took the picture. That line going down his face isn't really there, it was just a sad little tear. Everybody now.....oooohhhh, poor pup! He was just pouting because he couldn't come inside and destroy our new home, nothing serious.

Hooooray for you guys! I know what you mean by your family feeling complete. I always feel like there is a little something missing and I know it's a dog. My mother-in-law and sis-in-law both say "oh you won't even care about having a dog after you have a baby" but they aren't dog people so they just don't get it. Congrats! I can feel your excitement!

How fun for your family. My girls want a dog and so does Warren - so maybe one of these days. It would be nice to have a running buddy to keep your pace up.

By the way, the comment from Steven is from me (Kim). I am on Steven's computer and forgot to log him out.
