A Tribute to Max

So last Friday night, our little pup Max passed away. He was hit by our neighboor's truck accidentally, and unfortunately didn't make it. He was such a good little pup and Brandon and I will miss him a lot.

But because the experience was a traumatic one (a bit too much for the blog) we decided to go ahead a get a new puppy so that Brandon could put this terrible experience out of his mind and focus on happier things.

So on Saturday, we headed down to New Orleans and picked up Hercules...a GREAT DANE! He's no Max, but he is absolutely wonderful in his own ways! And we already love him to pieces! He follows Brandon absolutely everywhere he goes (which is what Max used to do). It's pretty cute to watch.

He is 4 months old and already weighs 50lbs! At 1st I was kinda sad that he wasn't a little pup, but then I found out that he's potty trained!!! Which is AWESOME!

The night we got him, we had Joel, Holly, KK, Eli, Jelani, and Taylor over for dinner. The whole time they were here, he slept soundly next to the couch by Brandon's feet. Eli put his temperment to the test by patting on him, tugging a bit on his tail, and even SAT on him... Hercules didn't even flinch. He was OUT! Another thing that we love about Hercules is that he loves to cuddle! (Which I find quite hilarious seeing as how he's a huge thing) On our way to hang out with Adam & Erica, he wiggled his way from the back seat so that the whole front half of his body rested in Brandon's lap. Too cute. :) Anyway, here are a few pics from today!

The Heils

On 8/1, Ms. Kim and Mr. Todd were married! It was a beautiful ceremony and we're so excited that Mr. Todd is part of our family.

For their honeymoon, they headed down to a city a little south of Cancun. Here are some pics from their excursion.

Family Reunion 2009

Brandon and I at the Vinice Beach!
Picked this one up on the beach ;)

We went to the San Diego Zoo on Saturday, which also happened to be the day that San Diego hosted a Gay Day Parade! It was kinda crazy trying to get there, but it the zoo was well worth the fight! It was AWESOME!

Us with a monitor (lizard) but you can't see the monitor very well.

This snake is PINK (if you look closely you can tell)

And this one is a GREEN!

Standing next to the largest pieces of bamboo ever!

Panda exibit

The king of the jungle and his hunny.

Polar bear exibit. This was one of my favorites!!

This was the avion sanctuary, and this bird was pretty much within reach. Gorgeous.

Kailey was a bit tuckered out by the end of the trip. If you can see, she was pushing Eli's head out of her way so she could sleep. :)

The Snake Charmer

We just got home from riding the 4-wheeler when Brandon jumped off and started chasing something... Sure enough, he rolled out from under the trailer with this little sucker. It's a speckled king snake.It was beautiful and turned out to be quite docile.
...didn't even try biting him. :)

My New Garden!

So I've been waiting til I was done with school before I trying to plant a garden! So the time has finally come! Brandon tilled the ground where we're going to plant! I think his tractor's sexy :)

We've got yellow squash, cucumber, and bell peppers.

We thought we'd try out some watermelon too! :) Oh, and we also got some basil. Hopefully everything turns out yummy!

While we were at Ole Time Feed buying our plants, we got some new baby chicks . They were on sale :) Buy a bag of starter feed (which we had to do anyway) and get 10 baby chicks free! Pretty awesome.

And just in case you haven't seen our new goat, Slick Willy, here's a pic.

Celebrating Early

It's been a busy weekend! Graduation, shopping, crawfish boil, and birthday celebration! I'm turning 23 on Tuesday, the 19th but we always celebrate the Sunday before at Brandon's MawMaw and PawPaw's house. His MawMaw made carrot cake for me and it was awesome! Here a couple of pics.


So I've finally GRADUATED! Yay! No more stressing over homework or exams! No more waking up at 6am (at least on a daily basis)! No more crazy professors! I'm just thrilled to pieces!!! I never thought this day would come; it seemed like it never would. But I can finally hold my offical degree in my hand at last! However, like the 9o% of college graduates who don't choose a career that puts their degree to work, I too will not be using my expertise in Nutrition. I am offically a software developer! Haha. A bit odd how that worked out, but that's life. Anyway, here are a few pics from graduation. These are from Ms. Kim's camera. I'll have more when Wendy emails the other pics to me. :)
Me while I was waiting to walk on stage to get my dipolma! Suprisingly enough, they said my whole name correctly!
