Our newest newest addition

Isn't it ironic that I finally get my very own, incredibly adorable, charcoal lab puppy the day after a baby bunny winds up at our house. I mean isn't 4 kids, and 2 bunnies enough? Apparently not...

I will say in my defense that my mom warned Rob when we were dating that I tend to end up with pets. She should know she still has my cat. She has had her since I moved out of the house when I was 19. Also I should point out that until I was 7 (almost 8) we lived on a farm with cats, dogs, sheep, bunnies, goats etc. etc.

Rob and I have always wanted a dog. It just hasn't ever worked out until now. So here she is. Isn't she sooooooooo cute. She opened her eyes for the first time today (they appear to be blue). She won't make her way to our home for another 5 weeks. We are anxiously awaiting her arrival.

Our newest addition

So if you have ever been to our house chances are you have met "Brownie". Brownie is our 3 year old bunny we brought home when we bought our house. I was pregnant with Crew and not quite ready to own a dog yet.

Yesterday our neighbors came home to find a baby bunny in their backyard. She was actually cuddling with their dog. They of course showed her to us (because we are serious suckers for any cute animal) and because they new we had a bunny already.

It looks like we have a new baby bunny named cupcake unless a previous owner comes around looking for her. We have asked all the neighbors around are block and so far we haven't found anyone (which my kids are very happy about).
Brownie is our very mellow super soft and very sweet girl. She adores "Cupcake". They are always snuggled up next to each other when the kids actually put "Cupcake" down (which isn't very often). Cupcake is always perched on one of their shoulders, beds, riding their stuffed animals or playing hide and seek with them. It is really very endearing.
She is really tiny. She actually fits in one of my hands.

I have warned them she might not be around to stay, but we are having fun with her while she is.

Rob and I did it. We took a trip together without our kids. Well technically I just went to work with Rob for the week, but it was still without kids. Look at the cool plane we got to take :) While Rob worked in Mountain View opening up a new hospital I visited friends, and food in San Francisco and other parts of the bay area. For example, I had a lovely run in Golden Gate park, bought an obscene amount of Chocolate from Cocoa Bella's, and had a yummy dinner at Town Hall. Did I mention the sushi and the shopping? We went to 2 movies (and we didn't have to pay a babysitter). I slept 10 hours the first night we were there (I literally didn't wake up until 9:30am). We missed our kids, but they were in good hands with Grandma Verda and Grandpa Craig.
