& that way with those flashing tripod things.

Tula, just being ablt to take you to an event like this seems like a testament to your (and your mom's) hard work! Congratulations!

I hope everyone is having fun with grandpy and grandmy!

Mango said...

Tula, you are a goddess. I cannot believe that you were actually there with all those weird people milling about and what not.

Of course you did miss out on getting a new toy at skool, but, frankly, I am not sure it was worth it as one of the labradorks had touched every single one of them already. Ick.

Guess what? We had races and I totally got a handicap so that I did not have to run as far. Yuh.


Sam said...

That didn't scare you, Tula? Nice work. I know one black doggie who would probably be barking her head off at those balloons.

Looks like a fun day out with your grandmaw and grandpaw.

We can't believe that neither one of you stole a ride in a balloon.

Bruce said...

Wow, what a beautiful sight that must have been Tula! I'm pretty sure I would have been standing by the side with you...not in the middle like Norwood.

We are in much the same spot here with company everywhere we turn.

We heard the humans saying there was going to one of those big balloon festivals here in the fall, we sure hope we get to go too.
