Ahhh, spring. You are the season for flowers, sun showers and pretty dresses. For the first weekend of spring Cody took his two favorite girls to the mountains for a Sunday hike. Everything is blooming and the waterfalls flowing. We had such a fun time and can’t wait for the next trek.

3 today!

Time is flying by so fast! I can’t believe today is Chewy’s 3rd birthday. This morning we celebrated with a kibble, peanut butter and blueberry bone shaped cake and it’s safe to say that she loved it! I had fun making it too.

After her birthday breakfast Chewy took me and Cody on a long walk to the University of Washington in the hopes of seeing some beautiful cherry blossoms and lucky for us, the younger trees were full with pretty pink flowers. I can’t wait for the bigger trees to catch up.

Right now she is napping but I’m about to wake her up for a walk on the waterfront. Well, for her to take me for a walk. She is old enough now to walk me…

Happy birthday my little princess!

Autumn Chewy.

It’s been a few months since Chewy and I sat down to write and we’re sorry it has taken so long. These last few months have been super busy! Currently our condo is being renovated and Chewy has been spending a lot of time with grandparents during the week. Although she would like to help the construction guys, she kind of gets in the way. Now that the main work is done, it’s back to normal business for the Stark’s and the 3 of us are back home together.

It’s taken a few years to become accustom to the cold Seattle weather but I’ve finally embraced the fall and Chewy and I have been having a lot of fun. She loves watching the yellow and orange leaves fall and running through them once they are all raked up and in neat piles. We were very lucky this weekend to get a bit of snow. We got out of bed at 5am and went straight outside. She put her nose to the air and was shaking her face in glee like a Polaroid picture. To say she loves the snow is an understatement. The cold weather was worth the happiness I could see in Chewy’s waging tail. Autumn has been a busy but fun time for us and we’re excited for holiday season.

Chewy and I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving and that all of her furry friends had fun with their family and friends.

16 days of summer to go…

The sun has been shining, the temperatures are high and Chewy has kept me on my toes all weekend! We ran around the dog park, frolicked in the lake and strolled along the Birk-Gilman Trail. From chasing the squirrels up the trees (and yes, I was at the other end of the leash) to swimming laps around me, we are two content girls that are ready to take on the upcoming week.

Chewy has been busy.
