Then Sunday, Buster's "dad" contacted us and he wasn't sure if it was gonna work for Buster. Oh we were all doing the happy dance. The lady wanted to give one more day to see if Buster would fit with her dog.

So, this morning, was the last day of summer vacation, and we didn't want to sit around the house. The kids did the yard, and got all their laundry ready for school. We decided to go up the mountain and play around Ruidoso!
Took the kids to go carts, and for the first time all four could drive all by themselves! It was so fun to watch them! You can click on the pics and they will get bigger? I think!
Anna came second she was a bit more timid, and didn't really get top speed. Her and Abby both would duck their heads to go in the tunnel. That had me rolling. My daughters are dorks!
**insert here, Eric has his learner's permit and is driving whenever possible now**
Gabriel tried so hard to pass Abby, she would not let him by. We could see the determination in G's face, and the pure joy in Abby's:
It was wicked low! Where the kids and Tony are standing is usually under water! There were a few people fishing and it was HOT! I mean, stagnant hot. There had just been a bit of a rain storm go through, so the humidity was high. There were carp just sitting in the lake. The looked so lazy...Gman wanted to of course use his bow and arrows. We were smart and didn't bring them, as our G fancies himself quite the nature man, and thinks Bear Grills could learn a thing or two from him, but that is another blog post.
**he starts football tomorrow, and we are gonna enjoy his stories of the torment the coaches put them through**
It is now 3ish, I need coffee!
Back to the town, and we had spotted on the way up a CinnAbon!
Then we head for home, no, wait, just one more bathroom stop! Now down the mountain. We rocked out to Judas Kiss at the highest setting a few times, and cruised into town.
The owners of Buster called. The lady could not keep Buster, could they bring him to our house? Tony quieted the kids, as I talked with them, giving him our address and directions to our home. Yes, thank you, see you in about a half and hour. Click.
A huge scream of YES! Arm pumping and happy noises! Oh we so wanted another dog, and a Yorkie named Buster was exactly what we needed.
They came over and we were smitten, in love and in laughter at Buster and his antics. Boo was okay, but hey, Boo is a timid dog and not a lover. Buster will love ya like forever. The two dogs played and we visited and learned all the fun things of Buster. He does tricks, loves rice and is just a fun baby! After a long visit, the owners, the momma so sad for her, her heart is broke, left and I just wanted to hug her and make it stop, but we know that ache of giving an animal away.
Here is Buster:
We are pretty excited to add Buster to the family, and look forward to many years of adventures with Buster and Boo!
