Pontoon and puppies

We spent the Memorial Day weekend up north at our cabin. We had amazingly warm weather for this time of year and the kids even went swimming in the lake! Most years, a person would get hypothermia from doing that:) Aliya got a turn driving the pontoon boat and loved it.

So our new puppy was born 3 weeks ago and the other night we went as a family to go visit the puppies. Misganaw is holding one of them. How cute is that? We will wait a couple more weeks before choosing one so we can see more of their personality as they get a little older. Right now, they all seem the same to me!

Here is Mihiretu with another puppy.

Katie with yet another puppy.

After the puppy visit, we stopped off at Dairy Queen for a little treat. Aliya just learned that in eating an ice cream cone, eat from the top down, not from the bottom up! I CANNOT believe it didn't make a huge, drippy mess and it stayed together!

Life is a little crazy right now as we are preparing for Katie's graduation open house here on Saturday. Praying for good weather! Then after that, we concentrate on getting the kids ready for their trip to Korah and getting Katie and De through their graduation in a week. Lots to do, lots to be excited for!
