5 month stats

All I have is 55 pounds. After last time and he was 49 I said he was too heavy for me to lift and weigh so Michael did it today (he weighs himself then picks him up and then figures the difference). I did take a video of him today though so enjoy :)
In the video he tried to follow Michael downstairs but I called him back. He was probably disappointed that he didn't get a treat but I was holding the camera. We enrolled him in obedience training to help out a little (we are on week 3 of 6). It is just helping reinforce the things that we had been teaching. The dog trainer (Pam) has also given us some pointers on the other problems we have been having with him. He is doing very well. He also goes to puppy play time on Friday evenings. There is a dog park at the park closest to us that we want to start taking him to. He should really like that...he really likes playing with other dogs. He is a very friendly dog...but then again labs are so that is no surprise. He is really getting big.

Mini Vacation

This past weekend I went on a mini vacation to South Carolina. It was my niece's and my new nephew's wedding reception. They were married in the OKC temple the previous week. Here are a couple photos:
The beautiful bride
The happy couple
I was amazed that I got this one with their mouths open. The cultural hall was beautifully decorated. Congratulations  Rebecca and Alex!!

On Saturday Kelly wanted to go to the beach with her kids. We went to Folly Beach near Charleston SC and it was sunny, hot, and wonderful :) We put sunscreen on but still got toasted. The Atlantic Ocean was wonder hurricanes form so easily. Here are some photos:
 The one above was taken from the entrance to the beach. As you can see there were a lot of people there. The one below was taken to show that boat (I believe it was a catamaran). They took it out sailing until we couldn't see it off the horizon then brought it zig-zagging back to shore. Kinda cool to watch. Also in the photo there is a couple (it was actually a family but the rest of them were out in the ocean) there in black about in the middle but towards the bottom. We ended up sitting next to them and they had a watermelon and they shared half of it with us. It was seedless and we just thought that was really nice. Nice people still exist :) Actually everyone there were SO well behaved...I was impressed.
 This last one is of a couple seagulls. There were lots of seagulls and I decided to get a photo.
