Ride 'em Cowboy and Sam's Diner

Today, the weather was beautiful. The kids are outside, still, and they are pretty dirty by now.
Here's some snapshots I took of Shay just minutes ago trying to ride on Cowboy, our basset. As you can tell Cowboy LOVES the attention. He walks right up to Shay and stands there so that Shay can throw his body all over him. (When Cowboy's had enough, he just sits or lies down.)

Yep, you can tell Cowboy and Shay just don't get along.

Hey Buddy, I think your 'um gettin on the wrong way.

Shay is handing out sand if anyone is interested. And even if your not interested, Shay will make sure you get some!

For the last three days, the kids have been playing restaurant on the back patio. They named the restaurant "Sam's Diner." The food's pretty good. I'm just getting tired of the same old thing.

Here is Sam himself. He only comes out of the kitchen for compliments, (and fruit snacks. That is, real fruit snacks.)

A happy customer.

She's really enjoying eating that plastic hotdog with her plastic fork.

Sam is so nice, he even feeds the rat that hangs out at the restaurant.

He's even been known to dine with the rat on occasion.
No, he's not too proud.

You have the most imaginative kids!! I wish I lived near you so I could have lunch at Sam's Diner--it looks like a great place to hang out.
LOVE the pictures of Shay riding cowboy. What a patient, loving dog!
