Jakes Vacation

So, I'm a little scared at the moment.  While Jakes was on vacation with his Dad, they shared a couple of pictures with me of what they did during the week.  There are two things that amazed me about this.  First, he sent pictures.  Second, he DID stuff with Jakes.

Our little county has been hit pretty hard with storms over the past week or so.  Lots of rain, fast and hard, making it difficult to run off without washing out roads and bridges.  We've lost 3 little bridges and there are still several roads closed due to undermining.  There are estimates of $5.5 million in damages and that's just to roads and doesn't include private properties.

All this rain and flooding left the fields where Jakes does riding lessons a mess and lessons were canceled.  So JF and Jakes went fishing instead.  Sounds like a good deal to me!

Jakes has been bugging me to take him to Joe's Crab Shack or Red Lobster.  I haven't had the time or the money.  But his Dad took him to a place where they had King Crab Legs and Jakes was a Happy Boy.  Here's the picture his dad sent to me.

He Ate Them ALL!

I'm working today and part of tomorrow, taking Jakes for a hearing test and after-surgery follow up, then I'm off the rest of the week to spend with my friend from AZ.  We're planning a trip to the beach.  Should be FUN!

have a great week everyone!
