Mother's Day 2009

I realized when I woke up this morning that poor little Olive could barely open her eyes. She was so swollen. I was a nervous wreck. I rushed Olive to the vet along with the kids. Our new vet took care of Olive with some cortisone shots to her face. Poor thing. I don't know what's worse, being bitten by a spider or shots to the face?


Anyway, our weekend was delightful. Mother's Day is always a good day for me. Nick took care of breakfast and dinner and we went out for lunch on the downtown pedestrian mall. A day off from feeding the family is a good thing every once in a while.

When you don't eat out that often eating out becomes a real treat. We had a delightful time walking up and down the mall. Charlottesville is loaded with lots of great people watching. There were several street musicians so Ladybug had a ball dancing around.

Oh, poor Olive! When our dogs get into something they are allergic to (bees, plants, etc.), we give them plain old beadryl and it works like a champ.
