Now that summer is coming to an end I am feeling the need to look back and remember some of the memories we’ve made with our four-legged, furry children over the past few months. The summer always seems to fly by and I love taking a moment to flip through some photos of warmer times.
One of the first things on the Creighton Summer to-do list (As if I would ever be organized enough to have one!) was a visit to Cornhill nursery just outside of Petitcodiac, NB. It is a huge nursery with acres of gardens, flower displays & a gorgeous patio where you can sit & enjoy a glass of fresh apple-cider or grape juice or a cup of organic coffee. We love how dog-friendly the place is and whenever we have the time we stop in for lunch at the Cedar Cafe (they even have an awesome gluten free menu!). If you have never been you should definitely take the time to check out their website here.
Next up was a a mini doggie birthday party for Ozzy’s 3rd birthday. JD’s brother, sister-in-law and our little niece were down with their dog for the occasion and we took the opportunity to get the dogs all decked out in some party garb. Aren’t they the cutest things ever?? Even Ernie got dressed up for the occasion.
We also try to make a trio down to JD’s aunt & uncle’s farm in Bloomfield, NB at least once every summer. They have an old dairy farm and an absolutely beautiful property that holds lots of great memories for JD from his childhood. This year we spent our 5th wedding anniversary on the farm with JD’s aunts, uncle, cousins & our boys. It was hot, sunny and a perfect day.
The dogs had a great time running around the farm and exploring all of Aunt Jan’s flower gardens.Oh, and eating watermelon..
Last but probably the best- we spent lots of time with the boys on the beach! Ozzy in particular LOVES the beach and since my MIL has a cottage right on Parlee beach we were able to spend many a day lounging in the sand while the dogs ran around and rolled in seaweed. I wish I was kidding- but Ozzy makes it his beach mission to find the smelliest spot and roll around in it.
