Extended Birthday Celebration

We went to Sheila's on Sunday for a family celebration for Eric's birthday.

Sheila made another fabulous cake. It was a red velvet cake with heath bar crunch and caramel!

Kelly got the assist for blowing out the candles.

And we got a 2-for-1 blow fish photo!

We're in the final stages of the vacation countdown. We're counting down in hours now... we're trying to get Alex all set with taking care of the house and Jenny while we're away. All the neighbors know we'll be away and several friends will be doing walk/drive-by's while we're gone. You can never be too cautious!

And speaking of Jenny, she's not doing well. She was recently diagnosed with degenerative spinal disease and is in a lot of pain. The vet has her on pain medication and muscle relaxants. We go back in 3 weeks for a check up. The vet says it's not reversible, so we'll have to see what the long-term plan will be, if there is one. She's almost 11, but unfortunately, this is a fairly common disease for Corgi's and dogs with long backs and short legs. Her sister had it 3 years ago at 8 years old and the outcome was not good, so Jenny got a few more years on her anyway.
