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.
