September and October are usually busy months at our house. Usually busy with fun stuff, but not always. This September started with a trip to Illinois to attend the funeral of David's nieces husband. It was a very sad and unexpected loss. While we hated the reason for the visit, as is often the case at funerals, it was nice to see some family we don't normally see. David's two great-nephews were the highlight of the trip for sure.
The Tuesday after Labor Day is the annual dog swim at a local park. This year it rained and was delayed by lightning. Once they were able to open, the rain continued, but the pups didn't mind. Riley swam and swam and then swam some more. We finally took him home when we were worn out. ;)
