So Wilson had a birthday yesterday - 10 years old. And, yes, he most definitely acts like he's 70. He's a great dog really and has always been so good (i.e., tolerant) with our kids. The kids, Miles especially, was quite adamant that we celebrate with cake. Of course. So I made a cake - and we even let Wilson eat a slice. Ha. Miles also really, really wanted to buy him some goodies at the pet-store. So we went on Tuesday and Miles bought a big baggie of dog treats - that look so good that all my kids were mad they couldn't eat any of them (not that they haven't ever tried some. . .).
Yesterday was also Jonas' last soccer games. He had a double-header due to a game that was rained-out (it probably rained for 5 minutes) a while ago. While Jonas did have some improvement over the season, I'll just say that I don't see soccer in his future. Or anything else that involves running. My children lack the hussle-gene. Well, Emmy might have some. . . we'll have to see. Anyways, the first game Jonas did really well in defense during the first half. Second half, I can't remember. Last game? He was pretty pathetic. He let 2 goals in - which, really, I wouldn't care if he was trying. But he wasn't watching the ball at all and that was the problem. Then he complained to me that he just doesn't like running, which I reminded him that he was goalie and so he hardly had to run! Geez.
Anyways, some pictures from yesterday:
something similar to this a few years ago. It did look better, but when I was doing some piping a big blob of frosting bursted out all over the front. Oh well. It was definitely edible.
Oh, and a video:
