An Afternoon at the Beach with Baxter

Girl Ready to Walk the Dog

Everybody Digging

We have been staying with our friend Baxter. His house is walking distance from the beach, so we have been having many beach walks together. He is a great friend to Penelope, she loves bossing him around, playing hide and seek, and feeding him. And she loves the fact that he has curly hair just like she does.

Violet also loves Baxter. She crawls after him at warp speed, and he is a little nervous when she does, shrieking as she goes, but when she sits in her highchair she is his best friend. He starts his day with a breakfast of fallen cereal O's and he has enjoyed bits of sweet potato, carrot, tofu, lentils, and teething biscuits. He will miss her when we are gone, I am sure.

We are all enjoying having a dog for a little while, and I'm even more loving the walks on the beach daily. And I'm being reminded too, that I am happy to wait until the girls are a bit older before we get another dog of our own, because they are so like little children themselves, and need so much care and attention. We are glad to borrow Baxter for this month though, especially Penelope. She is loving this wild, curly haired guy every day, and that makes me so happy.
