Gideon's Last Full Day

Saturday was about as perfect as a day can get.  Gideon was feeling good, and we went on the W&OD trail again.  He was pretty sore, so we just did the "regular" walk, but man was he happy.

You expected to see him doing something else?

Come on Mom, the pooping grounds are this way!

Gross, yes, but it's how he'd want to be remembered!

Is Sharon trying to look like a rapper?

He was really tired for a while, so he rested for a few hours until Nadine came over for dinner.  We all played outside for a while, and he had the chance (and was feeling good enough) to first play with a ropey ball and then destroy it.  

It doesn't get much better than this!

After we came in, he was pretty tired again, but REALLY happy.  Nadine coming over was a fantastic way to spend the evening.  

Once he cooled off a bit, we took a few pictures with our happy Little G, and then had dinner.  

Of course, after dinner, we decided to relax the "under the table" rules a bit.

I did a little more playing and relaxing outside with Gideon after it got dark (while the kids were in the bath).  Then the standard rubbing and cuddling later.  I really can't imagine a more perfect "last day" with my sweet little boy.

Will miss the carrot-loving, oversized "puppy" that always greeted me with a warm, happy, slobbery, enthusiastic and full-bodied hello...even when I didn't have grapes in my pocket (*heh*).
