Happy Birthday, Maggie!

I know a lot of my posts end up being about my favorite pooch... but this one is special!  Our Magnolia Mae is 1 year old today!  We went to Madison to visit with my parents for the weekend.  She had a very eventful birthday weekend.  As usual, there are many pictures to go along with the story.  

Last weekend we celebrated Memorial Day with Jesse's family and had to board her, so she was really excited this weekend once she realized she was getting to go with us.  

We woke up Saturday morning to spend the entire day on the lake. Maggie was quickly a big fan of riding on a boat.  

Jesse caught a bass...

...and I caught a catfish!

Which we ate for lunch today. Yummy!


After fishing and riding, it was time to get in the water. (By the way, why is June already so hot this year???????)  A dip in the lake was very refreshing - and we finally convinced Maggie that being a lab means that you must be a waterdog.  We tried to get her to swim back in November, but she was not a fan...  So, after some coersion, in she went!  She made a b-line to my Dad who was chillin on a raft and immediately climbed aboard to safety.  

Here's a video!  At this point, she still wasn't too sure about it and was ready to be back in the boat... as you will see.

But once she got used to it, she loved swimming and sitting on the rafts!

Surfing Dog!

After a great weekend in the Brick City, we made it back to Starkville for a birthday dinner with Aunt Kelley and Trae, who brought a gift!  Every lab needs a duck toy.

Overall, I think she had an excellent first birthday.  She is absolutely pooped now that she is home.  And so it is time for bed. Goodnight!
