And Then There Were Four

We're creating this blog because it's the cool thing to do when people are having a baby. Just kidding, really we already have a hard enough time keeping up with everyone we want to, and our lives are about to get even more wonderfully busy. We can't wait - and we want you guys to be able to share in it too, so we both plan on reporting on it. Read at your own risk, and hopefully you'll enjoy it!

Epic Battles...

Hello again All,

Thought I'd take the chance to report on an epic battle waged in our living room this evening. Our fierce, loyal labrador attempted to fight off the noisy, invading vacuum cleaner. Initially, the combat was quite comical, though Brina's persistence and ardor made it rather encumbering after some time (my initial plan was not to spend 30 minutes vacuuming the room). Here are some attempts at continuous action shots from above with our new camera as I swept the vacuum cleaner around the room. Unfortunately, I haven't figure out how to simultaneously decrease the exposure time (hence the blurriness) while turning off the flash (necessary to avoid it recharging for a second and catch the speed of the encounter).

Initial incursion into the living room space...

First strike by the dog as the vacuum cleaner head advances!

And Brina sinks her teeth into the gray plastic!

But the wily vacuum cleaner proves too slippery and escapes Brina's grasp.

Brina's bold first move pays off here as the both sides retreat to recover from the initial sortee....

Repeat the above sequence of events about 30 times and you get the picture.... Sorry we posted that, but it was just too amusing not to. We promise more real content will be on the way eventually. Our first major doctor's appointments are tomorrow, so there should be a lot to talk about tomorrow! Hope you all have a good night, and look forward to hearing from you eventually....
