A week ago Isis swallowed a piece of her bone that was too large to digest, and she had to have surgery last Monday to have it removed from her small intestine. Somehow the muscle underneath got infected and she had to have surgery again on Thursday to clean it up. Thursday evening she wasn't healing right and we had to take her to an emergency clinic late at night. Needless to say, this has been one stressful week!

The vet gave her a cone of shame, but she can't figure out how to act while wearing the cone, so we don't leave it on for long. An assortment of small shirts keep her from messing with her stitches. Luckily her grandparents love her enough to watch her during the day, so she doesn't have to it wear them for long.

This has been a traumatizing week for all involved, and we're glad it's over. Isis is healing well, and we can't be more grateful for the support we've been given from all our friends and family.

PSA: Never give your dog an animals bone! It's cheaper and healthier to buy 100 chew toys that get destroyed in one day than risk the trauma involved in a complication like this!

It's always sad to reach the end of a vacation, but we have had a lot of fun on our anniversary trip. While we don't want to have to go back to work on Monday, we will definitely be happy to see our dog and cats and sleep in our own bed. Looking forward to #4!!!

Our vacation is winding down, but we're not done yet. This afternoon we went to a pinball museum and after 24 rounds each (keeping score, of course) we had a good battle, but Emily won in the end. More friendly spousal competition is expected with bowling later tonight.

Today we stopped at Top Pot Doughnuts before taking the monorail to the EMP museum. Tonight's plans include finding a good Italian restaurant and maybe catching a bit of the NFL season opener.


We turned 3 today!!! It was another beautiful day in Seattle. We explored the city, toured the Theo chocolate factory, had a picnic in the park, went to a winery, hung out at an arcade, enjoyed a romantic dinner with a view, and ended the day with pie. We couldn't have planned a better day.

Bumbershoot is over and now we're experiencing the beautiful city of Seattle. Today we visited Pike Place Market and the Seattle Aquarium.


Final day of Bumbershoot: even more comedy, music, and fun.


Bumbershoot day two: more music, comedy and perfect weather. We met Allie from the blog Hyperbole and a Half. Big highlight.


Our anniversary trip starts out with a music festival. Bumbershoot day one: comedy, music, and a new city.

This weekend we got to visit the new Perot Museum of Nature and Science. It was huge, and had a lot of really neat interactive exhibits. The one downside was how crowded it was, but it's summer and it hasn't even been open a year yet. We will definitely go back sometime in the future, but maybe wait til the off-season. Yay, learning!!!

We found the biggest yellow jacket nest this afternoon, there were at least 20 crawling all over it. My dad told us that they can't fly in the dark so we got a can of spray and waited til nightfall. Once the sun set Trey bundled up and went after them. Luckily we made it out with no stings.

Most of our trip was spent in New York. We stayed with an old friend in Brooklyn and then in a hotel off Times Square for a few nights. We visited museums, and parks, and had lots of fun.


This summer over July 4th we took a vacation to NYC and Boston. We spent a few days with Trey's sister and family touring Boston. It was a very cool city, we can't wait to go back and visit again.

This weekend we drove down to Houston for Free Press Summer Fest. We went to the very first FPSF back in 2009 and haven't been able to go back until this year. Seeing The Postal Service was probably the best thing ever. Amazing weekend!

Today two of our best friends got married, and we were lucky enough to be a part of their big day. It was definitely the best wedding I've been to (besides our own, haha). After the wedding they moved to Colorado, and they are dearly missed. We love you, Cayla & Kaleo!!!

Well, I haven't done a very good job at keeping up with our blog. I will try to fill in some gaps and maybe even post a picture the day it was taken. I'll start here, day 945 (April 6, 2013).

We adopted a new family member today! Isis was a stray brought into Operation Kindness and we fell in love with her right away. She is just over a year old and is a mix of Bull Terrier and mini Pit Bull. The cats aren't too fond of her, but she likes them, haha.
