Whew, I knew if I blinked summer would come and go super quickly and it sure is.  Between work being more busy and summer activities heating up I feel like we don't ever stop moving.  Because of exactly this we decided to skip a party for the girls this year again, it felt rushed and crammed and truly they don't seem to be affected by missing it.  Here's some pictures to update all of you that we are still alive and well. :-)

Joe had to work on a Saturday so we took Gram and Papa to the zoo.

They let us feed the geese though Austin remained worrisome of how close they could get to us.

I love these next two.  I call it "life is all about perspective".   The picture below is of the north side of the lake.

This picture is from the same seat in the boat but of the south side of the lake.  Beautiful day as long as you stay looking north. :-)

The girls are back in swimming when I can find time here and there.  Austin is doing really well and Tyler cries a lot.  On this particular day Tyler was crying so much that we put Austin back in the pool as a comfort to her.  Seemed to work.

We went up to Longmont for another dog show and decided to bring Hiro again.  There are a lot of noises, distractions and stresses at a show and the more comfortable we can get him the better.  He still needs to grow two more inches in height before we can enter him.  Longmont might go down as one of the most pet friendly cities ever, this picture was taken at Old Chicago's on the patio where they welcomed our giant dogs with open arms and ice water.

And the hotel that said "absolutely bring your dogs, the more the merrier."

Here's Kuma winning Best of Winners again both days.  He is featured here with the number one Akita in breed points (the brown and white one) and his aunt Onyx (the black one)...winning best of breed and best of opposite.

 Here's Hiro with our breeder Chris, practicing his stance.  He should show nicely here soon.

Oh yeah and we both took that Monday off of work after having to travel for the dog show and headed to the lake.  This was Joe's recent I must have, as you can tell by our pinkness Joe and I were too good for sunscreen and I am still paying the price for that ignorance. ;-)
