Born on the 4th of July
We are lucky enough to have some great friends who invited us to celebrate the 4th of July weekend with them at their lake cabin in Crosslake. We went out on the boat, watched fireworks, did some fireworks, and had an all-around great time.
One of the funniest parts of the weekend was taking the dogs for a swim. Penny is a natural - she jumps right in and starts paddling around. She spends most of the weekend stalking the ducks that keep landing on the neighbor's dock and taunting her. Archer doesn't quite seem to get it. He keeps paddling his front legs only and his butt just sinks. At one point he found a sandbar. He is tall enough that he was standing on his back legs and "paddling" the air with his front paws.
Our friends had lots of questions for us about India and how our selecting a clinic was going. They just want to see us have our own baby so badly. They also brought up an interesting point - next Fourth of July our family might be a little bigger.
