A boys' best friend

Our neighbor's tree fell in the storm yesterday. As he was cleaning it up, LJ when to say hi and we all followed and talk to him for a bit. While we were all talking nice, their dog who is hates our dog with a passion was letting LJ pet him then decided to bite him. (nice)
As any dog owner who has a dog who bites a child, he looks at the dog then back to us and says, "he shouldn't have done that"
I'm thinking our cute little puppy would have found out verbally that she shouldn't have done that. She would have known, that was wrong. The word NO in a loud voice to a dog does not hurt them, but does scare then and they can understand what they did was wrong.
What would the Dog Whisperer do?

Vacation at the Lake

We have some great friends with wonderful parents and they have invited us back to the lake again this year. The lake I am talking about is Table Rock Lake and it's a little piece of heaven. It's a much larger lake than the one I used to go to as a teenager, and totally better!
I have spend the good part of 20 minutes looking for an mp3 of the Go-Go's Vacation (Steve wanted us to sing that as he performed his sking act for us :-)

Anyway, I could by it from iTunes, but I can't play that format on this blog. Here are a few pictures of us on Big Bertha.

All the kids went tubing today and the big ones even skied. Reese is a great skier and JP, on his first time got nearly up. He was so happy! I'm missing a few pictures and will have to come back later to update..... Before our weekend is out we need to create and preform our anual water-ballet and eat our Petero's and Frog-Eyed Salad. Yum-e!

But look at these two pictures...this is so them.
