So I have been pretty busy this summer with weddings and such, but what has been keeping me the most busy is my new puppy, Bode, who I got in late June. He has already stolen my heart. Of course he has already become one of the most photographed golden retriever puppies ever. Here captured on July 4th, at our families annual party (he was pretty popular).

P.S- his sister Ruby is enjoying him almost as much as he is enjoying her.
