In your face.. Dewey travelers

Ok.. I've been somewhat envious of those of my local friends and blogger friends who made the journey to Dewey beach so their hounds could frolic ocean side.  Alas we have been stuck in the middle of a kitchen remodel and because I am loath to give people good money for jobs I can do myself, I end up taking on too much with to little time available.  Non the less we were determined not to let those Dewey adventurers have all the fun. Our good friends Tony and Lisa came to the rescue by hosting a grey play evening adventure featuring Tony's smoked and bbq'd brisket.  The meat underwent a full day of cooking and it was well worth the wait.  The event also featured a fantastic potato recipe, wonderful salads, a bean dish to die for, an assortment of deserts and adult beverages of many form and flavor.
The boys were extremely excited to explore the back yard with their friends (eight dogs in total).  Ricky snuck into Tony's work shed and soon we heard squeaky chirps and beeps coming from within.  Tony was puzzled as no dog toys were stored in there.  I was worried he found a cat, but upon further investigation we discovered that Tony's little grand son's bike had a squeaky horn on it.   It must have took Ricky all of 5 seconds to find the one thing in the place that squeaked.  The rest of the night the dogs were trying to gain entry to the shed to try their hand at the bike.   Ricky and Kassa were so excited to see all their friends.  Beth Ann lead everyone in a game of chase so they all got a little exercise in too.

Ricky even and the fortune/(mis) to be dressed up in some of Beth anne and Tequila's attire.

In the end we are all pretty tired, curled up on the couches, and had a good sleep when we got home.

So .. my Dewey adventurous friends,  while we hope to feel the surf on our feet/paws with you next year, the boys and I were able to find some fantastic festivities with good friends right hear close to home.  Have a safe trip home everyone.

I hope to get to Dewey someday, but it's always good to be able to have fun at home too! Looks like you all had a great time. Well maybe Ricky would have preferred not to have worn the pink hat, but haven't we all been to a party or two like that in the past when we wished there had not been any cameras?
