The Turtle Club

I've been wearing blue jeans way too much recently so I forced myself to wear my pink pants again! This time I paired them with brown tones instead of the usual grey I've done in the past. I think I like it but wasn't 100% sold. I was at my sister and brother-in-law's house for lunch on Sunday and my mom took these pics in their pretty backyard. I missed church because Sean is still sick with a cold and we wouldn't be able to leave him in the nursery during the service, but I'm sure he'll be better by next week and we won't have to miss again. We got to enjoy the cooler weather with a nice long walk in the morning and lots of time at the playground. Sean can now go up and down the big slide all on his own!

Oh and about Ryan's agility test. He was able to get over the 6 foot wall once, but the second time around his arm muscles gave out because he's been working them way too hard in preparation for the test. He was able to finish all the other parts of the test within the time allotted though, and next Saturday he'll have one last chance to get over the wall two times. If he can't do it there will be a 6 month wait before he's allowed to reapply to the fire department, so we are still hoping and praying he'll be able to get over that wall! He is going to rest his arms all week and hopefully recover from the cold that he got from Sean too!

(About the title...my niece's turtle is lost somewhere in the backyard I was in and I was wearing a turtleneck sweater...'nuff said!)

  8. love those pastel pink jeans, they work really well with the top. Hope they found the turtle :)

  9. Way to step you of your comfort zone and grab something besides blue jeans (I TOTALLY get in jean ruts at times too). I hope Ryan makes it over two walls on his next try!
