Their bull mastiff, Maisie, loved all the attention she was getting. She enjoys company as much as her family does.
She likes to challenge Mary for the role of alpha female, but Mary knows how to handle her. Maisie is just a pup after all - barely a year old - and she's still learning her place in the pack.
I wanted a picture of silly Baron wearing his new glasses, but every time I went to press the shutter button on the camera, he moved. I got some cute expressions though.
This stance and expression is just like his dad.
And this was his 'this is as good as it gets' expression. He really does look handsome in his glasses.
Layla and I were drawing on her white board when Maisie decided she wasn't getting enough attention.
Then we went for a drive from Oliver to Penticton, stopping for a look around Kaleden on Skaha Lake.
It was a cold windy day at the beach at Skaha Lake. Just look at those waves rolling in.
We spotted a brave and lonely para-surfer out there in the cold. He looked like he was really enjoying himself as he skimmed along the waves. We couldn't understand why he didn't freeze out there. My hands got numb just holding my camera.
|Can you spot him out there on the water just to the left of his para-sail?|
In the evening, back at Mary and Greg's house, we had a belated birthday celebration for Lloyd, whose birthday was last month.
Layla and Baron had painted pictures on canvas for him - very colorful. I'm sorry I didn't get a picture of Baron's, but it was very colorful too.
