Since we had Mykaela over last night, we slept downstairs in the guest room. This morning we woke up to the
pitter patter thunderous rumbling of 8 legs running back and forth upstairs! Soon those legs came downstairs and barged into our room. Poor Mykaela was greeted in the face by Gauge and then as soon as Charlie remembered there was a guest in the house he began his 'hound dog' bark. =)
Once the 3 of us got ready for the day, we made our way to the Corner Bistro for breakfast. It was so good! Mykaela & I had pancakes, bacon and an egg...Maggie had strawberry-almond french toast and bacon...Mmmm! Maggie & I also had deeeelicious white chocolate mochas. Sounds so good right about now!
After breakfast we took Mykaela back to the Majors and then went home ourselves. I ended up being home alone with the dogs for a couple of hours which can be quite the chore. As long as you're still...they're still...most of the time at least. ;) They were sleeping and I wanted to go upstairs, but I knew as soon as I got up they would be right at my feet. It probably wasn't even five minutes after having such a thought that Gauge started roaming. Problem solved...or so I thought. I went upstairs, took them out to do their business, sat down at the piano and 'tried' to practice. Piano practice becomes very interesting when you're constantly having to make sure the dogs aren't getting into anything, killing each other, tearing anything up, or doing their business in the house. You're lucky to get through a whole song in one sitting...haha...such is life!
When my mom came back from lunch she brought Mykaela back with her. We went to Walmart and then came back to start preparations for dinner...and boy was it good! With everyone's contributions we ended up having...Pulled pork sandwiches, Broccoli Slaw, Texas Slaw, Potato Salad, Frog-eyed Salad & Brownies! We had a FULL house, but it was so much fun! It was a great time of food, fellowship & fun! It was such a blessing to see the McDowell family again, and I can't wait for our next visit...maybe at their house?!
