Mischief Monday - The Visitor

We had a very busy weekend with our 2 year old niece Maggie staying with us. She was as good as gold and was a true toddler a few times! There was still some mischief that wasn't really about her!

Saturday morning we woke up to no power, thanks to a thunderstorm. It was only out for a few hours so it didn't impact our day much.

The weather didn't cooperate. We had the coldest July days in 7 years. Also, after living in a drought since the spring it rained. We had planned to spend the weekend at the beach but that didn't happen.

While we were out grocery shopping, in the pouring rain, my windshield wipers died. We had to pull over and wait for the rain to stop and were able to make it home. The car is getting fixed today as they are calling for rain the rest of the week, and as I have an out of office meeting, a colleague has kindly agreed to let me borrow her car for the hour I need to be out/

Hailey barked at Maggie, less than she has, but enough to make the poor girl cry. We noticed Hailey is more likely to bark when either the Man or I was touching Maggie.  Hailey quite liked Maggie at meal times. Mostly because she dropped food and got her hands really dirty and they were low enough for Lee to lick!

Zaphod, while not sure of what to do with a little one, is very patient as these pictures show:

Sorry it is a bit blurry, in my haste to get the picture, I didn't have it on the correct setting!

"I'm not sure about this belly rub!"
While it was a big change from our normal, very quiet and dull lives, it was nice to have Miss Maggie visit!

  20. Sounds like it wasn't too much of a mischief weekend except for the car. Hopefully Lee's barking will get less as Maggie gets older.

  21. She is so precious.

    Aroo to you,

  22. Maggie is adorable! I am sure she livened things up for everybody.

  23. We are glad that even though the weather caused some mischief, the weekend was still fun!

  24. Maggie is a cutie and obviously loves the dogs - Zaphod is a very patient soul.....Hailey sounds like she might not like to SHARE you with Maggie but that's understandable too. Hope you have no more power outages!!!

    Hugs, sammy
