Screens from Saturday

Yesterday was lovely.

The first day of fall and it was jam-packed with good/wonderful/grand things, without us really trying to make it be so.  It started with Sam’s football game – my family (Dad, Mom, Greyhound, Brother, Brother’s gal) came to watch him.  Well….the fourth play of the game, Sam had a little head bump and he had to sit out for the rest.  He’s fine, thankfully – and everyone stuck around to cheer the Raiders on (they won).

After the game, we (Dad/Mom/DT/me/Sam/Henry) went bowling.  Lariat Lanes is two minutes from our house and it’s awesome!

My parents schooled me. Again. (Reference bowling in Chicago four years ago.)

We came back to our place and ran Bailey-hound ragged in the backyard.  She loves her footballs!

Then an unexpected project.  My dad is the Grass Whisperer and insists he can make grass grow where we couldn’t this summer.  So when I asked him when he was going to do his magic at 7:00 last night, he asked if we had seed.  Yes.  Black dirt.  No.  Shovel.  Yes.  Okay, let’s get to work!  I did not expect that!

We rallied the troops and dug in.

Henry was a taskmaster – next to my father.

Then my dad watered like crazy.

Here’s hoping, grow grass grow!  I feel like I’ve said this before!

We went inside and treated ourselves to delicious pizzas from Broadway after our bowling and landscaping.

Broadway Pizza is amazeballs.  I took no pictures, but it was amazeballs.  Get it.  Now.  Every day of your life, get it.

Then we chilled.

Sam, Milo, Mom

Milo had to get in on the love. Of course he did.

Ohhhh Milo. You are so loved.

Sam and Bailey

Sam snuggles with Bailey….I love this pic!  (Yes, Sam’s hair is partly green.)

The aftermath (To be clear, Milo does not give a flying hoot about dogs.  RJ does not care for them in his house.  At all.  Either way, they were both exhausted.):

He loves me, I really think he does.

Dang dogs stopping over!  So happy when they leave, ahhhh….

Perfect, just perfect.  I love Saturdays exactly like this!

What have you been up to?
