The dog's name is Sammy. I never really pay much attention to him when I go to Holly's parents house, but this camping trip I really got a kick over walking him around. Sometimes I'd like to get a dog. I bet the boys would like it, but then I think about the chaos we already have with 3 boys and don't really want to add to it.
Also, Carter got a new fish to replace Lucky. Holly went out and bought it for him just before she left for girl's camp. It's a beta fish and Carter was so overjoyed. He named him "Swimmy-Lego."
But now on to part of our activities while mom was away. One thing I did with the boys was make paper mache masks. We found some old milk jugs in the basement and cut them in half. I cut some eye holes and then we placed paper mache over them. Here is what they looked like when they dried.
Parker and his mask.
Carter and his mask.
The finished masks appear below. I did the one in the middle. Parker painted his all black with a single white war stripe one the forehead while Carter went with a more colorful selection. We hung them on the kitchen wall for mom to see when she got home. They look a little like tribal war masks you would get on a Safari or something, don't they?
But as swell as those masks look, they aren't terribly cute. So I'll end this post with a dapper photo of Parker circa 2011.
Catch ya later!
