Weekend Update

Sam here. Sam give update on weekend. Sam's Mom too busy to do it herself this weekend, so Sam do it.

Hi, dere!

First off, this weekend was Lost Dutchman Days in Apache Junction. Mom rode her big black mare, Isabel, in the parade.

Sam was not invited along. Mom and Aaron were afraid there would be too much commotion, and they were right. There were so many people and horses and dogs...

For instance, the Budweiser Clydesdale's made an appearance!

Aaron took this picture of the Budweiser dog. Sam thinking of applying for this position... What do you think?

It started raining after the parade, and the rain continued all through Sunday. This meant we couldn't go and enjoy the rest of the events. However, Mom and Aaron kept busy. First of all, they drew and colored this neat design on Dad's prosthetic leg. This design is inspired by ancient Greek red-figure pottery.

This is the whole leg. Mom and Dad decided to put the whole family on the leg.

Here is a close-up of Mom...

...and Dad...

...and of course, me, Sam!

Mom took Monday off due to being sick from her headache medicine. Aaron and her made Sam a fresh batch of yams. Which Sam likes very much. So much so, that Mom calls her Sam - Sammy Yammy.

Sam likes his new name!

All in all, it was a good weekend despite the rain and headache! We hope all of you had a wonderful weekend too!
