We are back..

I have a lot to catch you up on! I am going to go in reverse order..just because. ;-) We got a foster on Wednesday. Her name is JNB Baby Beth and she is a 4 year old female. She is ultra sweet. We are calling her Beth and she has a bit of crush on Jason..he can't really move without her beside him or under his feet. And everyone knows i have a thing for those brindles. She just laid her head in my laptop starting up the DVD player..too funny. I haven't been able to get great pics of her yet..so expect more to come.


Now we also have 4 boarders right now (do the math..I have EIGHT dogs). We are watching Lulu but we have learned she is very scared of cameras..so look back at past blog posts for those pics. We also have the Alfano clan. Jo, Tristan and Sara. This is Jo relaxing and roaching..she is cute.

And of course the beautiful Sara who loves nothing more than to roll around in the grass outside for hours..

The four boarders go home on Saturday or Sunday and then we will be down to Beth and our 3. Feeding time will be a bit less hectic and Shiloh will quit giving me the evil eye..I hope.
and of course, I can't forget about our Atlantic City trip. Kristen and I went with my friends Susan and Carolyn. It was Susan's birthday and she loves to gamble. This is the contraband shot..after I took it I had 3 suits come upon me very quickly letting me know in NO uncertain terms photography was NOT allowed on the casino floor..but I did get away with this one. ;-)

And I came out even thanks to a 300 dollar slot machine spin and actually sat a the card tables (black jack and 3 card poker) a lot! I have never been able to do that. Susan had a blast and loves to play cards..she never takes home money and that is her plan. Kristen..the Tropicana was not nice to her..but she had fun. Carolyn was our big winner..she did very well at the 3 card poker table and took us all out to a nice dinner on Thursday night. Here we are enjoying a glass of wine (we had to pay for them at the restaurants!). From left to right: Carolyn, me, Susan and Kristen.

All in all we had a wonderful time. We rushed back on Saturday so we could all meet the new Park arrival (stanley) and then enjoyed a nice meal on our deck with the dogs. ;-)

The suits have their eye on you!! I think I know exactly where that restaurant is that you went to...well, you go through the casino... ;-) I love the stories from your trip- Susan and Carolyn were fabulous!! I'm so happy we were able to meet them before they went on their ways! Beth looks like a real sweetie- I can't wait to meet her!
