Daisy turns 5 years old

Today is Miss. Daisy’s 5th. birthday.

She got 2 new plastic pools, 3 new balls, a no pull harness so I can walk her easier at the park, breakfast and dinner scraps and plenty of dog treats. We played fetch atleast 4 times today.

Last night she got a 4-pound peanut butter jug that was down to almost nothing but she loves getting the jugs lol.

We did two outdoor photo sessions today one in the early afternoon and one a little bit ago.

Daisy’s favorite game is playing fetch multiple times a day. She gets hot then she dunks in her pool and then she is ready to go again. Notice the ball is in the pool.

She may be a year older and she has slowed down since she was a puppy but she is still very active for a 63# boxer that is 5 years old.

Happy Birthday, Daisy we love you.

Tiny shorebirds

I really love going to the beach and getting to take pictures of the shorebirds.

These tiny sandpipers are always in a large group close to the waters edge it’s pretty easy to get their pictures with their reflections.

We spent yesterday at the beach because that was what I wanted to do for my birthday which so happens to be today.

Normally my birthdays are always spent doing something that involves taking pictures because that is what I love to do.

I will be sharing more pictures of the beach trip this week.

Happy Birthday Dad

Today is my dad’s birthday he would have been 78 – years old.

He passed away September 1, 2014 – 3 years ago from esophageal cancer right before he would have been 75.

I think the hardest part of my dad dying was that I replay our last conversations over and over in my head.

I have put the pieces together of EVERYTHING he was trying to tell me. My dad was trying to warn me what would happen when he was gone he was trying to prepare me for it. Nothing could ever prepare me for what has happened.

Happy Birthday, DAD, I love you and miss you.
