Blessings from a full weekend…

by Lisa on May 20, 2012

This weekend was busy and left my heart full.

Grace was off school on Friday, thus began our fun.  Grace’s best buddy, BK,  joined us at Lakeview Farms for strawberry picking.   It was fun and we went home with lots of sweet berry goodness.

picking strawberriesSaturday was the day my husband and I decided we would take Grace to look for a puppy.  You may remember we started the research and looking for our newest family member a few weeks ago.  My husband and I had been keeping the search a secret – until Saturday.   We took Grace to breakfast and once we were done eating my hubby let Grace in on the plan.

Daddy says we are getting a puppy.

What? I'm getting a puppy!!!!!

We had several locations chosen to look for a puppy, from rescue shelters to breeders.  Remember, we had to find a hypoallergenic dog due to Grace’s allergies and asthma.   In the end, we found the perfect puppy and the breed we had been hoping for – a Havanese.   She was less energetic than the first few we met, who overwhelmed Grace with their quick jumps and fast moves.  The sweetheart we chose calmly walked over to us, got up in Grace’s lap and it was all over…..

Sophie Maria is our little, 2 pound, bundle of joy.  She is precious and seems to be the perfect fit for our family.  We have started the  potty training/ kennel training process.  I will let you know how that goes.  She has stolen all our hearts.

Like any other Sunday, the day began with going to church.  Of course I started the day by taking our new bundle out for her morning romp around the yard and bathroom break.  After church we celebrated Grace’s 5th birthday with a party at a local gymnasium for Grace and 11 of her church friends.  They had a blast.

Gym Quarters fun.

Jumping into the foam pit.

We ended the party, as any princess would, blowing out the candles to her Barbie Princess birthday cake.

So, as you can see, it was a full weekend.  My heart is overflowing as I have seen my daughter experience many wonderful moments, creating memories to last a lifetime.

And because the puppy is so cute… I will end this post with one more picture.  🙂

Havenese, Sophie Marie
