It's that time of year again! The bluebonnets are out! Dress your kids in their Sunday best, load them in the car, and let the picture taking begin. Or in my case, load up the dog =) It's a Texas tradition! Callie enjoys frolicking through the bluebonnets, so most of the pictures I took are action shots. I guess we were a sight to see, because a mini van drove up and sat there for awhile. I thought to myself, people please don't get out of the car with your kids! I didn't want anything to distract Callie, and kids definitely would have done the trick. After a few minutes they drove away, I guess they just wanted to get a better look at Callie =) We took a few more pictures and headed back to the car, where I then discovered I lost my lens cap in the bluebonnets. Goodness! So back out into the field we went. Luckily I didn't have to search too long because it was laying in an open area where I could see it. Thank God! So, I got my bluebonnet pictures and my lens cap, all is right in the world again =)
I finally watched Marley and Me. I was really excited about this movie when it came out, because I loved the book so much. I bought the book back when I was flying, I was a flight attendant at the time. I thought it would be a good read because I have a labrador, so I figured I could relate. It would also give me something to do during the down time on my flights. So there I was reading Marley and Me every spare second I had, I couldn't put it down. I don't want to ruin the movie/book for anyone who has not seen/read it yet, but I'm sure by now though you know the story. Anyway, I'm sure the passengers felt real safe or thought I was a lunatic when they looked up from their seats and saw me crying my eyes out in the galley as I read. Comforting. The book about killed me, so you can see why I was hesitant to see the movie, HELLO I don't need a visual! When I read the reviews I was scared to go see it in the theatre, balling my eyes out in public is not something I'm really into. It finally came out on dvd, so I had to muster up the courage to rent it last night. It was a great movie, it really made me want another labrador puppy. Half way through the movie I said to Justin, "Maybe we should stop it now", knowing what was to come. I did not know how detailed they were going to be. Of course it was heart-wrenching, I tried my best not to cry, no such luck with that. I'm pretty sure Justin was tearing up too, he really worries about losing Bleu. I really recommend reading the book though, there is so much in the book that was not in the movie. I love Marley, he was such a wonderful dog with such a great story. John Grogan did a wonderful job telling Marley's story. He really shows you how much love a dog can bring to a family. Ugh, it makes me want to cry just thinking about it. So on that note here are my babies, they mean the world to me!
