It goes without saying, I’m sure, that Father’s Day is not my favorite holiday. It was better this year; mainly because we had a fun distraction. We went to my in-laws’ house, which I wasn’t really wanting to do, but oh well. After picking Luke up from his dad’s at 3, we headed over. It was a sunny day and they have a pool, so Luke was thrilled. I brought Hawaiian Garden and spent my time stitching, and of course it’s always nice to have a meal you don’t have to plan or prepare.
My in-laws’ best friends, who live just down the street, came over with their 8 week old puppy, which was the big highlight of the day. Luke was beside himself. He was completely enamored and followed the puppy around the entire time. He even got out of the pool for quite awhile to play with the puppy. Eventually he went back in the pool, at which point the puppy kept coming up to him. It was so adorable:
And, shortly after this next picture…
…the puppy ended up in the pool. We don’t have a picture of that, though. Luke was thrilled beyond words to “save the puppy”. He was asked if the puppy tried to swim but I don’t think the puppy had a chance since Luke had him out of the pool so quickly.
It’s in the very beginning thought stages now, but we’re toying with the idea of adding a puppy to the mix after the baby is born. Luke wants one SO badly, and it might not be a bad time for it when I’ll be home for a little while. But, we’re only just thinking about it; a dog is a lot of responsibility and we want to be sure we are willing and able to handle it before we take that on. We definitely will wait until we’re in a bigger house, at the very least. It was sure fun to play with a cute puppy for an afternoon, though.
