Last night, my parents house was party central. All day everyone was getting everything ready for the big night. We had about 60 people or so at the house. It was nice to see familiar faces from my childhood. Here are some pictures before the party- my mom, me and Jackson and my dad, brother, mom and me and Jackson.
Here are some eats from the party – there was a lot of BBQ, my dad’s favorite and all the fixings.
Here is a picture of the Birthday Boy getting ready to blow out the candles on the birthday cake:
The party also had a little drama. Jackson was hanging out on the back porch, getting love from all the guests. Everyone was petting him, giving him belly rubs and hugs, he was having a great time. Our back yard is open, so I was keeping an eye on Jackson while talking to all the guests. When it was time for the cake, everyone went inside, and someone told me Jackson already went in. I look around for him, and can’t find him, so I ask some people to help me look for him. We look everywhere, no dice, so we look outside, and its getting dark, and he is a small little black dog, so I am starting to freak. Then I see him, about 2 blocks down, wandering around. I was so upset. It wasn’t like he ran away, he was just walking along the path he usually walks every night, but he was alone and so much could have happened. I was very upset.
My mom was out talking with a neighbor this morning and he told her that he saw Jackson wandering around last night and he almost got hit by a car!! Seriously, if anything happened to that little puppy I would be so upset. Thankfully he is alright, nothing happened, but it was very scary. Jackson won’t be outside without a leash on anytime in the near future, you can be sure of that!!
