Plan B

Our Labor Day plans included bringing out the battery operated Barbie car for the kids to cruise around the yard, taking turns in the drivers seat.

But the rains came and reminded us that things don't always work out the way we would like them to... 

 and so we went to plan B.

Dear Diary,
Today was all about food.  There was good food and better food.  There were crumbs and there were entire portions of hot dog...  thrown to the floor, and they all had my name on it.  When the food stopped coming, I did what I had to do.  And then...  there it was..  the voice that  irritates me to no end reminds me of good doggie etiquette, making me the fine Cockapoo I was meant to be. 'Gracie, no!  Get down from the kids table!!  What is your problem?!'  Seriously... the only problem I see here is that she doesn't know how to enjoy life to the fullest...  Lucky for me, these kiddies love to feed me.  I can wait.  Gracie.

I hope everyone had a safe and fun Labor Day!


  1. Bobbi, Looks like y'all had a wonderful Labor Day in spite of the rain... because with those darlin' kiddos to liven things up, and add one adorable, begging cockapoo to the mix..... well, that's just got to add up to fun!

    Pssst.... Gracie, I would have snuck you lots of treats under the table, but don't tell Mama......


  2. So sorry the rain spoiled some of the fun but it looks like you all had a great Labor Day weekend - Gracie especially with all those goodies she scored.

  3. We knew the rain was coming so we made inside plans:) It was still a good day and we sure needed the rain!

    Gracie, I am happy that you enjoyed some delicious morsels on your Labor Day!

    Have a blessed day dear Bobbi, HUGS!

  4. Oh we jus' love it when da hooman kiddies come over to visit. Dat's da only time we can get da good stuffs to eat!

  5. Gracie, I'm happy you got some good sized samples of the food!
    Hope mom and dad enjoyed their long weekend and got some rest.

  6. It's nice that you had plan B. There will always be plan A when the sun shines!

  8. If Gracie had her way the kids would be there every day!

  9. Sorry it rained on your plans, but the food looks yummy, I would be right there begging with Gracie! It is raining all week here and we have a flood watch up. Adorable picture of the kids!!

  11. Looks like a fun time with the kids. Glad Gracie was able to get some snacks.

  12. Such a precious sweet post, Bobbi,no words needed those precious faces tell the story. Thanks for sharing.

  13. Gracie, doesn't Bobbi realize what a good helper you are cleaning up the crumbs? I don't think she appreciates your efforts to keep the house and floor clean!! Sorry the outside fun didn't work for Labor's Day, but it sounds like you had a great one anyway!


  14. OMD Gracie you were in the right places at the right times. Sounds like a foodies paradise.
    hugs from your BFFF,
