Daily Threads: A Day at the Park

I'd recently heard from someone I bumped into at our mailbox that there was a dog park close by. Now I'm not a huge fan of dog parks (mostly because Vets warn it's the number one place for your dog to get injured), but I figured during the middle of the day there might be less people there. And I was right - no one was there. Maeby had the whole park to herself! So we bypassed the fenced-in dog area and let her roam around this open field.


She had a blast. Mostly because my brother could throw her stick about three times farther than I could. Oh yeah - did I mention my brother is visiting? He flew in on Sunday and is visiting for the week! And this weekend my parents are driving down and visiting! I'm so excited to have a house-full of family!


Since my brother is like a hundred times better than a tripod, he snapped a few photos while we were at the park. My park attire is very casual and comfortable as I like to run around and chase Maeby - encourage her to get all that energy out! And she did!



{top & shorts: gap, scarf: target?, belt: mom's, loafers: sperry}

When we got back to the car we found Maeby in the driver's seat ready to take us wherever we wanted to go. She asked if she could drive us home, but I said I'd prefer she have thumbs before getting behind the wheel.

Lucky Maeby! My dog wouldn't have any idea what to do in a dog park, but she can tear up an open field! :) I'd have asked Maeby to drive me for ice cream!

And I LOVE your erranding/dog park outfit. You didn't sacrifice fashion for comfort- I'm impressed!

Maeby is so freaking cute! And that looks like an absolutely lovely day at the park. If only it was warm enough here for a day like that.

And I totally love it when my house is filled with family. Though after a week I am definitely ready for alone time!

You look gorgeous by the way!
