I just had to write about a couple things – mostly the adventures of Guen this week!

On Thursday we decided to go to the park in the evening instead of work out. At the last second we thought… maybe we should bring Guen! So we loaded her up in the car and set off for the park. Guen is not the biggest fan of car rides, but she toughed it out and made it to the park with us. My first thought was, we’ll have to sit and watch her and make sure she doesn’t run away… but we started walking and she started following us. So we decided to take a walk and she stayed behind us the whole time and only strayed off our path once! She was like a little puppy! It cracked us up. We could tell that she was getting tired, though, after about 20 minutes, so we took her home and she immediately went for my cup of water and started re-hydrating! Unfortunately, I didn’t have my camera with me at the park, but here is Thirsty Guen!

Thirsty Guen!

I guess Eric was feeling ornery because once we got back from the park, he dipped Guen in the bath tub!! At first, she didn’t seem to mind the water but as soon as she realized she was up to her chin in water, she slipped and grasped to get out of the bath tub as FAST as possible!

This weekend, one of Eric’s college friends, Brad McAlister came to hang out with us and stay at our house overnight. We got to eat out at our favorite place, Wasabis, a Japanese Steakhouse.

I’ve been decorating for fall and Eric and I both are eagerly anticipating fall weather. We are looking forward to hiking in the Smoky Mountains!

This weekend is “Boomsday” in Knoxville – I guess the point is that they just put off fireworks for Labor Day! So we will hopefully find a good view to watch the fireworks.

Well, we just got back from the gym so now it’s time to relax! Hope everyone has a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
