I met my mom’s entire family this past weekend. It was Renee's sister Emily’s H.S. graduation party, so we traveled two hours to Pennsylvania to celebrate. I ran around the yard, licked as many faces as possible, and stole a botchy ball from the boys. Then we played keep away, which is one of my favorite games because I love playing chase. I, of course, was too quick for them. They started yelling and told me to give it back, but I won them over with lots of wet kisses. I was so excited to go swimming because my mom’s grandparents have a big in-ground pool, but everyone said “no.” Their loss - I was going to show them my world-class doggie paddle.
