Kato’s 6th Birthday

Our dog Kato was a rescue and his exact birthday is not known. He was guessed to be about a year old when we adopted him so we celebrate his Gotcha Day as his Birthday and say he was 1 on that day. Now that we live in Downers Grove, we just HAD to get Kato a birthday treat from the Barkery.¬†Here is the world’s most smiley dog on his Gotcha Day.

It’s summer and you know what that means. Travel softball season!

This spring was a long one. It was Gracie’s first year of high school softball and she made the varsity team. She had a rough start, suffering a concussion during the second game of the season. She came back from that injury and joined her team to win the conference, then the District, and then go onto State.

Her club team, the Cascade Crush, started their travel ball season started the same weekend as 2A State, so she went straight from one softball field to another. Here’s some more pics of my girl doing her thing this year.
