Friday Pretties

Friday Pretties

Hydrangea love!

I got my Summer Board hung up in the living room and I love it!
After hanging it,  I went outside and picked a fresh bouquet of hydrangeas to compliment the space.

Now its feeling like summertime!

We can't have Friday pretties without
Polka dots!

Red and white polka dots ~ even better!!

I would make this house all rainbows and polka dots if my family would let me.

 Dr Phil,  Help me with this crazy color love!

We have every color Hydrangea in our little garden.
Soft pink, lavender, blue and green on one bush
and a dark magenta and purplish on the other bushes.
I wonder if there is a white Hydrangea?

 More pretties...

Mommies babies enjoying a few hours in the sun yesterday evening.

Fuzzy head Sharky is all ears and feet in this photo.

Thankfully he only jumps in the pool if we are in it or if we throw his toy in.
Back and forth ~ Back and forth...  He loves to chase his toys in the pool.

Of coarse he sweetly thanks us with a nice shake and soaking of water!

Stymie ~  you don't have to do anything but open the pool gate and he is in the pool.

This is Stymie's pool. 
I think that he enjoys it more then any of us.
Each morning he waits by the back door hoping that I will let him take a swim.
I just look at that face and that happy little tail dancing back and forth...
and next thing you know,  he's in the pool before I've even had my morning coffee.
Unlike the ungraceful Sharky  (the show-off who leaps in and makes a big splash),
Stymie slides in smooth and quiet like an alligator sliding into a lake watching he prey.
He swims a few laps and sometimes just floats.
Did you know that dogs can float?
We didn't until Stymie.

Where is Darla when the boys are swimming.. 
She is napping in her new favorite spot outside.

The queen has made her self quite comfortable on our table!
That's just great Darla!

Happy Friday Friends!!!
Have a fantastic weekend.

I am off to clean, paint and make some chocolate chip cookies!

Today I am linked up with Friday Pretties at a Ruffled Nest
