This morning I was planning on uploading pictures that I would have taken last night of my growing belly because not only have I hit another week (week 28) but I am also in my third trimester! Woot! Woot! However when I went to my purse last night to grab my camera it wasn't there. I stood in shock thinking where it could be. Danielle's, my sister-in-laws. Between bringing food and stuff for Maestro I always seem to leave at least one thing at her house. Last time it was his leash (which was probably just as problematic as the camera) and this time it was my camera. I remember exactly where I left it and why I didn't even think to grab it before we left. *sigh* Major bummer. So I have no pictures of my growing belly. :( Sad day. Lucky for me we go to Danielle's house often and so with some luck I should be getting my hands on the camera tomorrow. In which case we'll take pictures of the belly and pretend they're from yesterday. Until then-here's a fun and random pic to hold you over-

I am constantly wondering what Maestro thinks on a daily basis. I am always wondering what is going through his head when he stares out the sliding door for twenty minutes, what he thinks about when hanging his head out the window, and what he's thinking when he stares at me and then tilts his head to the side. And is it a sign of a certain emotion when he has one ear standing straight up and the other is flopped down? What is he thinking when we don't share our food and when we're sleeping and he isn't a bit tired but lays on the bed with us anyway? I wish I could read his mind and understand what he is thinking. But despite my not knowing what he's thinking, I do think he's happy. There are signs that he does give me that I do understand to help reassure me that my pet is a happy. One is how he sits-so comfortably-In this picture above you can see how he sits. He sits on his bum but then leans back and arches his back a bit. Every time we look at him sitting like this we both laugh because it is so funny and so adorable. It makes him look like a fat, lazy pet but I know it's because he's so comfortable here and loves us. :)
This next picture is a good example of the one ear up and the other one down that I mentioned. If you stare at him long enough he'll eventually let that second ear flop down with the first and then carry on his business. It's so cute though, I love his ears.And lastly, I know he's a happy pup because he smiles. Now it doesn't just happen, you have to be playing with him to get his lips to move in this position but regardless, it is still hilarious. Yesterday I played with him with the camera and took a couple hundred pictures to try to get a picture of this and wouldn't you know lucky me got a couple! I am in love with them-So first you have to play with him and if you notice in this picture the left side of his lip there is up-
And then when he finally takes a break from playing he'll look right up at you and this is what you will see-Or it might look like this-Either way I'm in love with and it makes me laugh every single time. So despite the fact that I can't read Maestro's intelligent little brain, he still shoots me signals that lets me know that I'm doing alright with him and that he's one happy pup. Love you Maestro!

This past weekend Travis and I went camping to Tinney Flats with his brother, Clint and his family. We had such a good time hiking and relaxing! It was so much fun to hang out with the family too. The kids were great and loved hanging out and entertaining Maestro. And Maestro did great himself. I was worried about the hiking but he loved it. He was always wanting to be in the front and didn't ever seem to need a break. I was also a little nervous about him sleeping by himself since it was so cold. So the second night he slept with us and did just great! We had such a good time taking a break from our apartment and our every day routine. And despite not being able to shower, smelling like camp fire, and having four loads of laundry to come home to-we are looking forward to being able to go again!

I read a bunch of professional scrapbookers (we'll call them) blogs and they are always doing give aways. I have no idea how they decide who to give these away to but I am determined to win one of them one day. One of my favorite blogs to read is Elizabeth Kartchner's and today she is doing a picture challenge with yet another awesome give away so here I am. And here's what I was doing at 10:11:12 on 07.08.09...or better yet, here's what Maestro was doing-
Yeah for awesome and lots of good travel ideas! I have lots to catch up on! :) Happy 07.08.09!
