So… I lost track of an entire month. Again. Oops! But as the photographic evidence below suggests, the month did, in fact, happen. So there. Enjoy an entire month of Daily Pixels.
#159- June 7- Rrrruffffff.
|Fierce old man dog.|

|Next time I decide to paint, I’m hiring someone. Or emptying the room first. Maybe both.|
#161- June 9- The half-Dexter
|So our giant old bed frame isn’t easy to move… so I painted around it. Talk about upping the complexity of a paint project and the amount of plastic swathing needed!|
#162- June 10- Meeting the RV-1
|At the Golden West Fly-In and Air Show, I got to meet the Vans RV-1, the prototype for the entire line of Van’s aircraft including T’s formation flying plane, the RV-4. I got to sit inside the cockpit and that plane is DINKY. I couldn’t even extend my legs completely.|
#163- June 11- Summer means Little League
|The second best part of Little League games (besides the unbelievably cute baseball players): Sno-kones!|

#175- June 23- A birthday kayak adventure

#176- June 24- A day at sea.
|As part of the birthday splurging, T and I had the best massages ever. Sigh.|
#177- June 25- Why my pants don’t fit. Again.
|So, I may have had waffles and corned beef hash every single day of the cruise. I would say “But you can’t prove it,” but I’m pretty sure you can what with my pants barely fitting again. Dang it.|

#183- July 1- Bounty
#184- July 2- Only slightly sinister
|Goliath’s in his dark place because he really hates balloons. And I really love throwing (floating?) them at him. Because I’m a bad, bad dog mommy.|

#186- July 4- Happy Fourth of July, I forgot to take a picture!
