A few weekends ago BD and his dad headed out to Breckenridge, CO to celebrate BD's 30th birthday. I was originally scheduled to go on this trip, but Kip couldn't go to the kennel because of his knee surgery, so I stayed home to dog sit, and RD went in my place.
Breck is one of BD's very favorite places to ski, and they had really cold but good ski weather all weekend.
I sent BD with specific instructions to take lots of pictures since I couldn't be there.
And, apparently they decided to join a ski gang.
BD also got to see them de-ice the plane when he connected flights in Minneapolis. I think this might've been the highlight of his trip; there were more pictures of this on the camera than anything else.
LA and BD have been Living, Loving, and Laughing in North Carolina since they emerged from the Louisiana bayous a little over 13 years ago. Which, not coincidentally, is the same amount of time they've been hitched. They are in their mid-30's and are the proud parents of MC (6/2012) and GL (8/2016). Email them at ncleeann (at) gmail (dot) com.
Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love. They depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs your heart is very big. ~Unknown

"For me a house or an apartment becomes a home when you add one set of four legs, a happy tail, and that indescribable measure of love that we call a dog." ~Roger Caras
