Paws in the sand

Is this not the cutest little paw ever!?

If Bam’s paws were green {and a little longer} I think they’d pass for the Grinch.  No?


I randomly asked my BFF R if she wanted to come visit for the weekend.  It was pretty easy to convince her since it’s sunny + 75 all weekend.

I popped the bottle she sent of Fifty Shades of Grey wine in the fridge for good measure.  And boom, girlfriend is on her way!

Bam + I spent the morning at the off leash dog beach in Carmel.  The weather is a lot different along the coast than anywhere I’ve ever lived.  The warmest part of the day is usually around 10:00-1:00 and then it starts cooling off a bit.  And by that I mean it goes from 70’s to 60’s.

Happy happy happy Jack.

Bam has absolutely no sense of when the fun is over.  He will keep running and playing until he hurts himself. 

Last spring we took him to Avila Beach and Mike kept throwing a tennis ball into the ocean and of course Bam kept fetching.  Finally Mike’s arm gave out and they had to call it quits for the day.  This was after he ran on the beach and played with the other dogs for a long time.  I thought for sure Bam was going to kill himself from exhaustion. 


Yah, I’d say he was about done.

So I made sure he took a couple breaks every now + then even though he really didn’t want to.

I hope you guys have a fantastic weekend filled with running, fun stuff friends + fam and relaxing!

How far does your BFF live from you?

When getting away for the weekend, are you a planner or do you prefer to be spontaneous?

  1. Your dog is so adorable!!

    Glad you are getting some BFF time this weekend! I love to get away and have NO plans. That way we can explore and just do whatever we feel like. It’s nice to have a few things scheduled but the husband and I are pretty mellow and just tend to do whatever we feel like 🙂

    Have a great weekend!

  2. I am SUCH a planner. But Gary hates that part of me, so we compromise. I can pick 2-3 things that I want to do {it usually involves wine tasting or seeing a famous landmark}, then the rest of the time we just chill. Or Gary does, while I pretend to not plan the rest of our weekend/trip. HA HA HA

  3. Seeing Bam reminds me of how happy my dog is in the summer to run free! I can’t wait for the weather to warm up so we can take him to the dog park again. Someday! {sigh}

  4. Bam literally looks like he’s flying in that picture. he’s so freaking cute. 🙂 Next time in Monterey area with my pup, I’ll have to take him out to that beach. he’s been once to the one up in Santa Cruz, and he loved it.
