A Visit From Across the Pond

Dad's family from Ireland came for a visit to Grammy and Grampys this weekend. I automatically liked them because their arrival prompted a cook out. And as everyone knows, Grilma loves a cookout. They had two boys with them, and they loved us. So much in fact, that there was a request for an encore performance Saturday morning.

I have to hand it to that Sluggo, he really has the mojo when it comes to children. Every last one of them loves him. I don't mind him getting all that attention from the kids, it allows me to kick back and relax. Then, at just the right moment, I can make one of my grand entrances by bursting onto the scene. Like I did when they were having a big family photo session. You know the kind, the whole family begrudgingly lines up on the couch. It's a miracle if everyone smiles at once. Everyone is glad when it's finished. Well, just when they thought they were done, BANG!! I jumped up onto Gramma Mary's lap and started voguing. All my cuteness caused more flashes to go off. There was laughter, petting and lots more love. Just the way I like to steal the show.

Here's Brigitte collecting some love at our return trip Saturday morning

They're off now, exploring more of the New England coast. We hope they have a great trip. We really enjoyed spending time with them, and especially love how they pronounce pug. Kinda like poog.
