Family Fun Day #1

Today John and I took the boys to the Ridgevale Beach in Chatham, Mass. John christened the day Family Fun Day in an interesting southern drawl - hopefully the first of many.

Bug had never been to the beach before. I guess it only makes sense that Admiral Pudgy Paws would adore the ocean! credit John P.

Bug had an amazing time. When he first saw the ocean he literally just stood and stared. It was so cool! Then he started chasing birds - he thought that might be the best fun ever! Ike was very happy to run between his bro, his dad, and me. The beach is high on the list of favorites for all of us.

On the ride down we tried to think up all the pet names we have for our furry friends per DoLittler's Valentine post on connecting with your pet. It was a lot of fun. I will not include dogs of the past here, although we had great time trying to remember their nicknames, too.

Ikey, Ikey P., the Ikenator, Señor Ikelsworth, Mister Ikelsworth, Señor Ike, Icky-Ike, the Ikester, the Ickster, the Schnauz, the boy, Monster #1, Ike the bastard, Ike-Ike-Ride-a-Bike, nosypants, Sniffy McGee, Scruffilufigus

Buggie, Bug-a-boo, Buggie-boo, Admiral Pudgy Paws, Buggie Smalls, the Notorious B.U.G., the Corgi, the Corga-muffin, Monster #2, Buglet, Buggie-wuggy

Carm, Carmie-Carmie-in-the-Army, Carmelized Onion, the Onion, Carmie, Carmine, the Big Ragu, Carmie-doodle, Carmen Caveman, the Nose Collector, wet beard, Carmalita, Bajukey, Pumpkin

Joe, José Luis, Josephina, Evil Joey, Joe-Joe, Joseph, Joey-Joey-Lookin'-Hoey, Joey the Bastard

Holly, John asked me the same question! Guess I better adjust his list! ;-)

We had a great day. I swear Buggie "lost" his mind when he saw the ocean.

Holly said...

When Bug was here with me, and I spoke with an animal communicator, on his list of things he wanted me to do was bring him to the beach! Where I live it wasn't easily possible!! I am so glad you were able to let him do a dream!

I think you missed one of Ikes....Ike the fun police!

Jules said...

You're right! We also forgot Buggie's mob name - "the Silencer." He likes to walk around with a toy in his mouth and try to aroo!
