My very good friend since high school, Jaye Lynn, took this picture on her trip to Maui and I couldn't resist stealing it.
Seriously, is drinking water from the toilet a common concern in Hawaii????

Lastly, about our dog . . . hmmm, much more work than I anticipated. I am sure the dogs we had growing up didn't require this much supervision (or else my mother just did all the work so I didn't notice).
But . . . one of the reasons we took the dog is because our son, Ryan, and his sweet wife, Kali, had three dogs which we were told was one too many. So we took Lacy, leaving them two.
Well, guess what!! Ryan went out and got another dog, so they are back up to three! I think that is a good reason to let your kids have pets while they are young. When they become adults, they don't have to compensate for what they didn't have!
