Seven!

Ansel turned 7 in March but it took me this long to convince him to let me take some photos of him.

Rylan turned 4 yesterday!  We had an exciting weekend with lots of fun and way too much sugar!

Winston

winston

 

Winston recently went in to the vet for a scratch on his temple that wasn’t healing.  While he was there, the vet discovered a large lump in his abdomen.  An x-ray and an ultrasound later, it was determined that he had a tumor the size of a basketball wrapped around his spleen and a couple spots on his liver.  The next week he went in for a liver biopsy and removal of the tumor and his spleen.  His tumor weighed 11 pounds-we still can’t believe we didn’t notice it!  We are incredibly thankful that his biopsy came back clean.  He is doing well recovering and is enjoying fetching in the back yard in the cool fall weather!

A Day at the Zoo

Rylan really wanted to decorate his room with some pictures so we decided to turn our zoo trip into a picture taking adventure.

Visiting the Firehouse

The Greenwood Fire Station was having an open house a couple weekends ago.  They will be getting a brand new firehouse soon and had the model there along with the architects who designed it.  The kids loved playing on the fire truck and the ambulance.

Our “new” car

We finally decided to upgrade our wheels.  We bought a 2004 Mazda 6.  Steve drove all the way to Salem for it!

Ansel’s Butterflies

Over the last couple weeks Ansel grew some painted lady butterflies.  We got the caterpillars in the mail in a cup and when they turned to chrysalids moved them to a big netted home and waited for them to to turn to butterflies.  Then we released them!
