Just this past rainy Monday, my family and I were all driving around in our car (well, Carrie was the only one actually driving; Avery & I were riding in the backseat). My 3-year-old daughter asked if she could use my phone to take photos out the window. She ended up taking 86 photos in about 10-15 minutes. Here are my nine favorite in random order (click any to embiggen):
Also, at one point she put the camera lens down right on her leg and said, rather ominously, that she wanted to “take a photo of the darkness.”
There’s a thing going around the internet right now where you’re supposed to post the pictures of 3 fictional characters that, when combined, best describe you as a person. I think there’s even a couple hashtags for it. Yeah: #3FictionalCharacters or #ThreeFictionalCharacters. Anyhoo, I did one. Here it is without comment:
Sam Weir, Bumblebee, and Balki Bartokomous
Qualifier: Original cartoon Bumblebee only, not any of the other versions of the character.
To make a traumatizing story very short: On Monday while Carrie, Avery, and our dog Suki were on vacation in the middle of BC, Canada (I stayed home with the cat) with family friends, Suki got spooked bad by a thunderbolt and ran off into the woods in the middle of nowhere (basically). NOBODY could find her, and they were forced to come back to the States without Suki.
On Thursday Carrie & I drove 9 hours back up to Canada and got our darling pup back after almost 72 nightmarish hours!
What a survivalist pup this Suki is.
Suki is home now and is fine, everyone is fine. We’re beyond thrilled (and frankly a kinda surprised) to have Suki back. But we’re a little traumatized and emotionally drained. Except for Suki; she’s like nothing ever happened.
She just keeps rollin’ (around on the ground).
I can’t thank enough everyone who spent countless hours tromping through the woods looking for her. I’ll try to find a way, though.
