Dogs on Thursday and update.

I've spent the week recovering from my trips last week. I had a great weekend in St. Augustine with Special K. I enjoyed golfing and already plan to go again. :) Who would have thought?? I also liked St. Augustine a lot to. The old town part was fun and had good restaurants.

Well, to start out on Friday I ordered a cake from Publix. I asked them to rush the order and the size I wanted was the one that they give free for kids 1 yr old birthday. When I asked the lady assumed that Special K was 1 yr old and I let her believe that. :) At least I got her to put "Happy Birthday Kenny" on it instead of Happy First Birthday. hehee I did manage to fit 24 candles on it. Yes, Special K is 24 now. I'm a tad older than that if you're wondering....a couple years. So, here's his cake that we had in the hotel room in St. Augustine, FL. (I guess I should say that I paid $5 for the cake...she rushed the order because I think she thought he was 1yrs old. To get the small cake free you have to order a regular size cake and it comes with it.)
Here he is blowing out the candles. He's so cute. :)
On Saturday we headed to the World Golf Hall of Fame and I actually had a great time. I snapped a picture of Special K standing on the replica of the old bridge at St. Andrews in Scotland. I learned a lot about golf that day.
This is an awesome picture from the top of the tower that holds all the trophies.
We got to see an IMAX movie and play putt putt on a nice 18 hole course there. It's not like a normal putt putt place it actually has golf greens and the flags come out of the whole like they would at an actual golf course. I played well but still loss to Special K. That night, Special K's dad and step mom met up with us and we went to dinner. The following day we played an actual round of golf at an actual golf course. :) I say it that way because it's my first time playing a round of golf. I can't tell you my score because I really just had fun. If I had a good shot of the tee then I played it, otherwise I picked it up and placed it where I wanted. I had a great time. The course was hard though and I may say that the boys had their work cut out for them.

Well...our trip was fun and I'm glad that Special K had such a great birthday weekend. Now, I just have to figure out what I want to do for mine. :) It's coming up soon. 20 days from today I'll be turning 28. hehehe. Told you I was a tad older than Special K.

Well...since today is Dogs on Thursday I figured I should add a picture of my pups. They are doing well and we haven't officially started our walking in the morning but the plan is there and hope to start soon. Here's a picture of when I took them to a local swim spot to check it out. We decided not to go there because I felt the water was too stagnant but they enjoyed the nice walk in the park.
They sure are cute and they have a great stay when there are no other dogs around. :)

Hope everyone is doing well. I hope to get back on blogging more regularly but with all these trips and getting ready for my new job, I haven't had as much time as I'd like.

Happy Dogs on Thursday!!


  1. Happy Belated Birthday Special K. My middle daughters hubby is 4 years younger than she is--they got married at the same age you guys are getting married at. And I had an aunt that was 7 years older than her hubby and they had a great marriage. I don't see a problem. Golf was never my game--but then it was because I don't do sun well--so enjoy. Good luck on the new job!! Loved the cake.

  2. Looks like you've had a great few weeks. I'm planing on golfing a bit this summer but the history sounds very interesting. For some reason bloglines isn't picking up your blog for me so I'm going to have to go back to the old fashioned click over and over method.

  3. Happy Birthday Special K... 24?
    ahh... to be young again! :-)

  4. Doug is 5 years younger than me (although he doesn't look or act like Pups look happy even if they didn't get to play in stagnant (icky) water. The pups and I need to start walking too maybe we should encourage one another to do that.

  5. Surely I must have read this wrong. You got a free cake by letting the bakery believe it was for a one-year-old when it wasn't? Please tell us I misunderstood what you wrote.

  6. Happy Birthday to my baby boy. I miss you and love you so much. I hate being away from you on your birthday but see you soon.

    Has is been 24 years? It seems like yesterday.

    Glad he has you to love and hold on to.

  7. Wow, you have been busy!

    I am just catching up and trying to comment better!

    Great pictures, what is the yarn on the socks?

  8. Happy Birthday Special K :-) Looks like you two had fun :-) I love the pictures of the pups :-)

  9. Looks like you had a blast. Sounds like fun. As for the pups? What good babies ; )


Thank you for leaving a comment! I appreciate them all!
