opal crush

on lady b.

opie too can sympathize with being caught in compromising positions.

father's day

a day or so late

making a card for dad

bow tied opal

first dinner outing
(not as miserable as he looks- he had his first taste of people food.  a lamb chop bone is not a bad way to start.)

happy father's day, pop!  the 4 of us are pretty lucky.

i spy a frenchie


a few frenchies other than opal spotted around the house

baby's first beach day


this was the first weekend spent computer free.  we packed our things and headed to assateague with opie.  the weather was just warm enough for us and just cool enough for him.  it may be one of the only days we'll get him there for the summer since it's hot as blazes and only june.  but we'll see.  he was definitely a trooper and we most certainly have a chair thief on our hands- you move it, you lose it.

...and we're back!


so a week after blogshop, my computer crashed.  HUGE bummer.  but i'm the luckiest for so many reasons:

  • had a computer for blogshop (this could have happened a week earlier!)
  • fixed for free (and trust me, the damage was $$- so so lucky! thank you, apple!!)
  • all files INTACT (huge fear of losing all baby opal pictures! and everything else saved in the past 4 years.  good, good lesson in backing up files!)
being without a computer for 2 weeks was not the most fun, but it gave me lots of time to get my hands into quite a few little crafty bastard projects, organize the buffalo bill room, and maybe just read, sleep, and do other activities that i may not have done in exchange of surfing around the net.  so all in all, i consider myself to be a pretty lucky gal.

i have to say, my blogshop skills may have gone a little rusty but i've been snapping away on my camera so i have lots to share and no excuse to get those skills back in order.  so bear with me!

(Gratuitous Opal shot for my mom)

{you can guess as to what his poor dad made him do.  not too sure how i feel about this, but nonetheless it's still a pretty cute pic of a dog carrying his own poop bag. that could be because i'm his mom.}
