Puppies are Like Kids...Well, at Least 75% of the Time

When Jimmy and I got Izzie, we knew we'd be giving up some of our free time to be with her, train her, etc. Once we felt like we mastered that, we decided Izzie needed a sister (Angel) to wear her out so that she wouldn't wear us out so much! I'm so happy we made that decision..they are two peas in a pod :) Love my girls!
Since having them, Jimmy and I don't always have the one-on-one time that we would like to have because the puppies are like kids...we have to pay attention to them, make sure they aren't causing trouble, getting into something they shouldn't be getting into, trying to escape (ANGEL!!!), etc. This weekend, we went on a church retreat to Salt Fork Lodge and Jimmy's mom watched the girls. I'm always nervous when I have to leave them because I want them to behave and I'm so freaked out by Angel's escape artist skills.
Despite my fear of leaving the puppies, I had an awesome weekend. Jimmy and I got to hang out and enjoy some quality time together. Our time was as simple as laying by the pool and getting our tan on (well, I got a tan...Jimmy got a few more freckles), sitting in the hot tub, playing stupid kid games with each other in the pool, being scared by the deer that kept walking by the bonfire...I just had so much fun with him :) I love my boo. By the end of the retreat, we were ready to get home and enjoy our reunion with Izzie and Angel.
I'm so thankful for our little family :) Love you Jimmy, Izzie, and Angel!!!!
