My wee ones spent the week at Grammy and Papa's house. They had such a great time and so did we.
One of the highlights for Lil Sis was the dog. When Chloe Dog joined our family 13 years ago, I never imagined that my kids would know or love Chloe too.
Chloe has struggled to accept those outside of the family. She is quite ferocious actually. She had a few close calls with my chillies when they first joined the fold, but Chloe has turned over a new leaf and has done so well with them. She even slept in Lil Sis' bed every night last week. I had to explain to Lil Sis that Chloe is a Grandma Dog and she didn't want to play a lot or be handled very much. She didn't accept this very well at first, but a few hours later I heard her loudly explaining it to Big Sis: She's a GRANDMA DOG!
I am not sure how my parent's faired over the week. They sure put on a happy face over the weekend, and seemed full of energy, but DH and I know how hard it is to be the stewards of these lovely ladies. Thanks Mom and Dad for helping us have a fantastic trip to Chicago. We could not have had the time that we did without knowing the Sisters were in fabulous hands (and paws.)
