day 232 : family time {aka : pictures of my dog}

one of my favorite things about summer is the 'cooling down' time an hour or two before the sun goes down. i love the cooler air, seeing so many people being active and the bright colors of the grass & the flowers! blake usually gets home around 630pm, so we always spend that first 60+ min on a long walk as a family of three. a few days a week, we take daphne on the long line {a 50-foot rope} and throw the ball around. since she is banished from daycare and can't handle the dog park, this is a great way for her to work on her commands and also knock out a bunch of energy. 

we always bring a bottle of water and a plastic bowl along, so she can take water breaks when she needs them. i am always amazed at how much energy she has & even when she is dog-tired {get it? ;)}, she just wants to keep going.

last week, we were playing & its the first time ever, she has stopped and just laid in the grass. i think she just loved the breeze & i also think she just really misses us when we are gone during the day. blake came over and sat next to her & i snapped these pictures. this shirt is my favorite of his & my heart just swells seeing how much these two love each other! 

fun fact : it has officially been two years since we saved daphnes life & it makes me all teary thinking about how much we love her. she is not the easiest dog & we have definitely hit some major road bumps with her issues and her 'i am going to destroy everything in my path' phase, but oh my gosh, i love her so much!
