Neah Bay

We had a great time in Neah Bay this weekend! It took a loooong time to get there, but it was soo worth it. We loved the company and the dogs were loving the freedom!

Here they are at our beach campfire, finally able to settle down and snuggle.

Andy and Katie

Matt and I (au natural, of course)

This squirrel was sleeping on my fence post last week...soooo full after eating all of the bird seed out of my "Squirrel-free" feeder...hmmm....

More pictures to post later when I get them from the others!

I think a run and bike ride are in order for the day. It is way too beautiful out to be inside anyway, especially since I was inside all weekend at work! I have to spend the next three days inside too, but am very excited for a weekend in Neah Bay for Katie's birthday. For those Twilight lovers out there, we may be stopping through Forks on the way back.

I love that my dog slides down the stairs in the mornings when he is still sleepy. His new thing is to run his face against the wall on the way down. This morning while we watched Matt get his lunch out for work and waited for the coffee to brew, Whiskey got up onto my lap and cuddled. That always makes my day! He's a little heavy, but its worth it!

This weekend I started orienting to Charge Nurse for my unit. I will be Relief Charge, meaning when they need someone to help out. I am so used to running around the unit on my feet, not planning staffing at the desk. I think once I get a few more days of training in, I will feel more confident. I didn't realize how hard it was to guess how many patients you will have at 3pm by 10am!

I can hear Jessie right now yelling "no, Whiskey! I need that! Don't eat it! Stop! Sit! Leave it!!!" hahahaha

Easter, Case, & Whiskey

We had a great Easter at our house this year! Sad to say, I only got pictures of Case and Whiskey battling for the treats.

I had to put all of the pics I had because I thought they were all so cute!

Waiting for his morsel...

Hey! You are taking a picture of me!

hmm...I'm not so sure that's going to work...

Mom...just give me the cupcake so I don't have to beg!

Case isn't so sure about that dog...

I think I will take a little nibble while he's not looking...

YEESSS!! Case is watching so intently...

Back to the waiting...

Here are some pics of the new shed that Matt and his Dad built last weekend:

this is what Whiskey does while you are away:

He saw me cleaning out the tupperware cabinet earlier and saw a great opportunity. Sorry about the shakiness...I had to follow him around. Ordinarily, I try to ignore him.
