29/52 "Motorboat!" ( Lots of Corgi paddling, hahah!)

29/52 "Motorboat!"

(Kids and Simon know... if you make the noise, you go faster!)

Also, my poor friends come over to my house and get abused. "Hey, you have a cool motorcycle!"


"Can I put Simon on it?"

(Bryon is such a good sport! I need goggles for Si if I do this again but Simon was all like "I'm driving now. Hellllooooo ladies, check me out!)

Now onto the other cool things --- ocean fun! Took the boys out swimming at the local beach, and I learned a few things. One was that Caleb -who dives into my fish pond at the drop of a hat- was totally shocked by the big wide ocean, and wouldn't go in past his shoulders. But he'd chase his brother through the shallows.

But he preferred digging in the sand and eating it. Hmm, well, at least I know he's nice and clean on the inside!

Simon, on the other hand... in his past life, he was apparently a Newfie or some sort of seal, haha. He was out there and paddling around so quick it was funny to watch him. Of course, with Corgis, it's like two strides into Puget Sound and they're swimming, heh.

Swim, Simon, swim!
Caleb really was positive that going past your shoulders invites sharks to snack on you. "Simon, dude, I hear that John Williams ominous music, so I'm heading back to mom."
"I fear no shark. I'll club him with this awesome stick."
Or simply retrieve seaweed. Yum.
This is Simon's Baywatch expression. Move over Hasslehoff, I look more intense in slo-mo.

Aw, thanks guys -- I love taking silly dog photos. :D The dogs don't complain about how they look in bathing suits. (I do, mwahahah!)

I realized something pretty quick -- Simon's got such a thick, thick coat he got waterlogged pretty fast. So, we shall return to the beach in a day glow green life jacket next week. XD

Caleb: I'm not going out there. He can get eaten by sharks. I'm staying close to shore, thanks.
