When we didn't stop at jason she wasn't sure that she wanted to keep running and fell a full leash length behind....thankfully the finish line isn't far ahead and there is a lady just out of the camera shot that is cheering, "come on puppy, you're doing so good... you can do it!"
gracie did great but really she liked the bananas and oranges at the finish line the best!!
Good Job Snicker Doodle!

bailey had this fantastic idea to have her & 3 of her friends go to the Haunted Woods cornfield for her birthday party...long story short, it didn't happen! Oh, we drove the 15 miles out to the haunted woods and we got in line to buy tickets.... but when the haunted woods characters came out of their staging area to head to their post in the woods... 4 girls went SCREAMING and running out to the parking lot, one of the girls tried to get in the wrong car, one tried to climb under the car...they all finally piled into the right car & quickly locked the door. I think the people parked next to us never laughed as hard!!!
After that we drove 20 miles in the opposite direction to go out to the Un-haunted corn maze where the girls ended up having the best time!!
The Maze was a good opportunity for me to buy my cornstalks for the season, which also made a splendid backdrop for bailey to show off her cute Roxy jacket from Grandma & Grandpa Kearns!!

Ahhhh.... what a pretty smile!
I asked bailey last night if she was super excited for school to start & her answer was classic... "Yeah, i'm ready for it to start, just not tomorrow".... Apparently it dawned on her that she would have to be out of bed before 11am!
That reminds me of a funny story from one day this summer: jason was mowing the lawn about 10 o'clock one morning and kept looking in the windows checking for any signs of life (from bailey or gracie!) since bailey had a hair appointment at 11:30. Finally he went in about 10:30 to wake the little sleeping beauty (bailey...it was still way to early for the doodle to be out of bed) and in a beautifully crabby 10 year old voice she growled back to her dad "IS THAT YOU OUT THERE MOWING THE LAWN THIS EARLY"...
Anywho...enjoy bailey's first day of school!!

Last Friday we headed out boating with the Soper's and had a great time! Once bailey figured it out we couldn't get her out of the water!! She did great and we all had fun... Thanks Tricia & Billy!!!
Bailey finally figured out how to cross the wake...she just hasn't mastered what to do once she gets across.

i had suggested gracie's doggy day care to a lady looking to board her dog for the 4th of july weekend. She researched the facility online and found gracie the model on their website!! Sadly, the picture doesn't make her look like the smartest dog around, but still cute!! Click on the link under our fave's off to the right to see our lil superstar!!
I can asure you I was more nervous than she was....and never in a million years did i think they would make it through the entire song...but, they were awesome!!!!
My family has participated in this event for years....somewhere around 12 years now & each year it brings back memories of family members lost to cancer, as well as a reminder to cherish the survivors. The track is lined with luminaries in honor of these loved ones. It is quite a site, i wish i would have thought to take a picture of the entire track all lit up. bailey and tiffany decorated all of our luminaries...aunts, grandmas, grandpas....and bailey made a special one for her mom celebrating 6 years in remission!!!!

I did try to get some video footage... (kim be jealous of my mad skills... and be ready to give me a lesson on my camera next time we see you guys....which by the way will hopefully be soooooon because we are all homesick for Utah!!!)
So... the video clip that i took Friday night is way to big to upload so i went ahead an attached a clip from a previous performance. It isn't as good as the clip from Friday night because there was another girl in the way, but look close and you'll see our kiddo. The second clip is the grand finale!
