From June 12-14
Poor Dale. Abbi is just in love with her cat and tries so hard to pick him up, all the time. I can’t believe he’s so patient with her and never even hisses or swats at her. The cats got lots of extra attention in the first few days after Pippin dies.

That night we had dinner at Noodles and Company, and as we were eating outside we saw several hot air balloons heading our way overhead.

Lilli loved hearing the story of our hot air balloon experience and it was so fun to see them going by. (And more fun not to be on it – definitely one of those bucket list things I’m glad we did but have no desire to do again!!)
