frida is not normally a fan of playing fetch but when there’s another dog and water involved she clearly enjoys herself.
the local coca cola bottler was giving away full cans of coke during the 4th of july parade presumably to support the share a coke 2.0 campaign. i saw a lot of kids trading cans so they could have the one they wanted to share with someone else.
the customized bottle is a complicated bit of marketing genius that’s supremely complicated to pull off. i bet there were a loooooooot of bottles given away today at parades all over the country.
i saw the can on the gingham table cloth and couldn’t not take a picture. if only it had a little american flag next to to round out the image.
we didn’t know it at the time but some consider it one of the most difficult hikes in michigan. i don’t know about that, but it was challenging. the hard work was worth it though because the view of lake superior and the surrounding area was gorgeous.
super serious selfie alert! hiking and climbing and serious business

wow, how time flies – we haven’t had this crew together for 6 years! since then some have been born, many have gotten bigger and at least one of us has gotten much smaller always great to see family. odin had a grand time with his cousins.
i’m sure somewhere i have a photo of us the last time we got together that i should dig out.
as always, the odds are slim of getting everyone to look at the camera at the same time in family photos.
frida loves to pass the time gnawing on bully sticks so only the best grass-fed, free range pizzle will do! i always debate if i i should tell folks who want frida to give them a kiss after she’s been chewing on a bully stick.
