Lily at the Ocean

We're in FLORIDA!!!!! The video is Lily's first time in the ocean. It's been sunny and warm so far. Lily absolutely loves the pool. She's definitely a little swimmer. We've been having so much fun hanging out with Maureen. Matt and Dan (my cousins) have really taken to Lily. I think they were a little unsure at first, but now they love to hold her. Tyler is currently doing mission work in Mississippi. He's there with about 60 youth from the Archdiocese of Indianapolis. Please keep them all in your prayers.

On a different note, we had to put Patches to sleep on Friday. She had a huge tumor growing on her leg. It was difficult for her to walk and she just hadn't been herself in a while. She was Tyler's, Grandfather's dog and we got her after he passed away. Seriously, THE best dog ever. She had really become part of our family. We are going to miss her so much. I can't imagine going home and she won't be there. I know we did the right thing though.

I want to start on a positive note and say how adorable your video was. I can't believe how big Lily has gotten. She is such a doll.

I'm so sorry about Patches. I know how hard it is. Dogs really become part of your family and she was always so great every time I met her. It's always hard to admit you did the right thing--but you definitely did. I hope Winky and Patches are playing in doggy heaven somewhere. Love you babe.
