We went to DC for Obama’s inauguration, and saw many other sites as well.
The first weekend of April and the second weekend we headed to Austin to visit the LBJ Library and saw the state capitol. I had an amazing 29th birthday and we kept on partying in San Antonio for Fiesta with our friends.
I started my list of Blogging Vizslas to keep track of all my other favorite dogs on the blog circuit.

I had a seminar in Chicago, so we made it into a long weekend exploring the windy city (August-Boat Tour Part 1 & Part 2, Hancock Tower, Beautiful Bridges & Buildings, White Sox Game, The Former Sears Tower, Lincoln Park Zoo, Wrigley Field, Grant & Millennium Parks). I flew to Louisville & explored the water front as I waited patiently to pick up our new puppy- Ms. Mia! Mia had a very busy first few weeks- including meeting Zoe, her first swim,
We hung out at the pool with our friends, but couldn’t spend the night because we had a brand new puppy at home. It took them a few weeks after their introduction to really settle in, but Mia & Zoe played and swam like best buds.
For Labor Day, we had a pool party with friends & the pups were the main attraction with their diving skills. We started working around the house- including new landscaping in the backyard and redecorated our front sitting room.
After waiting for 6 years, I finally made it to Austin City Limits Festival in Austin, even if it was a bit more rainy & muddy than I’d hoped for.. We followed that shortly with some amazing seats at an incredible U2 concert. We took Mia to the dog park for her first social outing and a quickie introduction to the agility equipment.
We enjoyed taking our favorite boys again for Halloween.
We marked our 1,001 days of marriage by reviewing our 101 List to reminisce about all the fun we’ve had & things we’re still planning to do.
