Danny's 3rd & a New Family Member!

Danny's 3rd birthday weekend went down a treat, even though I have the head cold from hell and sound like Barry White. He really did enjoy himself and loved his presents & Craig made another cake...

And we met some of his friends at a local play place ...

And they ate pizza and drank pink lemonade...

And he had loved his new SuperWhy t-shirt with cape that we got him...

Last night some more friends came over and we all partied and had fun. It was a non-stop day from 8am-10pm. I took a short video of us singing Happy Birthday to him but as you can see, it's like torture for him. Our boy does not like hoopla!

Today we took the boys swimming and then we went to our local dog pound. I've been thinking for about a week about getting another dog as a companion for Cody (he's about 11 now but has the heart of a puppy) and of course we would love another too. But it has to be the right dog for us and not a manic, jumping, escaping, child-hating, cat-chewing mailman-biter! I thought that I would never find a dog as perfect as Cody but we met this little guy today, who's one, and in person he's like Cody's double. The face, the eyes and the beard are all the same and he's about the same size. He also has sad eyes and looks like he has a gentle soul. There were a few dogs in there that you could tell were just waiting to rip your throat out. Anyway, his picture doesn't really look like him in person, but here he is ....



They took him in to see the resident cat at the pound, to see if he's ok with them, and he was frightened of it. It reminded me of when we got Cody ten years ago and there was a wild bird in the area and Cody was afraid of it - he turned into a puddle and tried to crawl into a corner! We spent some alone time with him and the kids loved him (he's a big kisser). In fact Jack wants him to be "his" dog and even picked a name out. Another person had him on hold until the place shut at 5pm so we did a 2nd hold and came home, not feeling too confident that we'd get him.
At 5pm I couldn't stand it any longer & rang and they said that the other person didn't show and that we can get him. So I'm going to take Cody to meet him tomorrow and if they like each other then we will have a new family member! And the name ? Luke, as in Luke Skywalker of course!
