Belated nose bumps to Kaylee and Jayne…

…for Friday was their adoption day (five years! five!) slash birthday (thirteen and seven years, respectively). Naturally, I was too busy celebrating to write a proper blog post. As with last year, Shane and I took them walking along nearby Smithville Lake – an outing which was more for our benefit than theirs, given that neither girl is very big on walks.

(Note how Kaylee has hunkered down, signaling her refusal to walk one! more! sticking! step!, in the photo above.)

After a slow start (we couldn’t remember where along the lake’s 175 miles of shoreline we’d parked on previous visits), we were eventually able to find some nice trails,

including a miniature “beach” area for Jayne. (Unfortunately, the main swimming beach was a) closed for the season and b) isn’t open to dogs, anyway. Boo! Hiss! Boo!)

(She loves the water! As long as it isn’t in a bathtub!)

But mostly they couldn’t wait to get back to the car. Actually, we didn’t even make it that far; in the end, Shane trekked back to retrieve the car while we girls waiting to be picked up in the picnic area. The laziness!

Happy to be back home, they spent the rest of the afternoon lounging in the backyard, soaking up sun and bellyrubs, and enjoying a nice cardboard shipping envelope “chew.” Ah, the simple pleasures in life.

Note to self: next year, make them muffins. They’d rather have the nomz.

    @ Sarah – Thanks! My husband and I have a deal – he names the cats, I name the dogs. We have seven dogs and one cat. ;)
