The boys were rockin' awesome this weekend. Frank 2Q'd both days. Vinnie finished his Novice Jumpers and moved on to Open and got the first leg today. We had tons of cake and more food than was good for us. Now it's time to sit back and watch Desperate Housewives!!

Des Moines...

The agility trial was at the new Jacobson Building at the Iowa State Fairgrounds this weekend and it's fantastic. We didn't freeze. In fact, the weather was fabulous! We had thought about camping, but decided it was a bit risky with weather. We ended up at the Motel 6 on NE 14th. It's cheap and well worth the entertainment! It has a certain aura to it. You'll just have to experience it for yourself. Would I stay there again? You betcha! The rooms were nice and the neighbors plentiful and exotic!!

Agility was great. The building was spacious and not freezing cold!! There was no outside food allowed, but "contraband" food was plentiful (or you could just make a trip outside to your van). Unless, of course, you wanted to pay $4.00 for a pop.

Frank was wonderful and 2Q'd all three days this weekend. Vinnie, on the other hand, was a learning experience!! We definitely have some things to work on. By today, we finally found something that worked for us.

Good Weekend!!

The boys had a great weekend. Frank Q'd five out of six times (number six was totally my fault! Sorry Frank!!). Vinnie ran in jumpers on Saturday and Sunday and did great!! We NQ'd on Saturday cause I was too busy running and not doing enough watching. Sorry Vinnie!! Sunday we managed to get it all together!

Good boy Vinnie!!!
