While we stayed at Lindsay's house (yes, that's where I got my little Lindsay's name) the girls got to interact with her dog, Buddy. Erik suggested they pick up the poop on his evening walk, as a preview to what it would be like to have our own dog (I think he thought it would deter them a bit in their current quest) and so two nights in a row they eagerly awaited the night time walk. They didn't exactly enjoy the picking up of the poop, but they loved taking him out for his walk.

Kera really liked Buddy.
Do did Lindsay.
Here we are, friends for probably twenty years. Hope for twenty more!!
One thing we did while in the Denver area was go see one of Erik's buddies from back in the day. It was pretty warm while we were down there, so instead of stand around in a sweltering zoo, we met him and his 2 kiddos at his home instead. The girls spent the afternoon playing with water guns and chalk while us adults chatted. It was a very relaxing afternoon and much more enjoyable than the zoo would've been.
