This evening was sort of a flurry of activity. After work Aaron went back to Lowe's and got the flowers and garden soil so we could plant flowers out front. Apart from eating dinner, we all spent most of the evening outside. We also had an unexpected guest come check out what we were doing. It was a golden retriever(?). I don't know who he or she belonged to, but I don't think I have seen the dog around before. The boys seemed to think the dog was a girl, probably because Aaron's mom and dad have a golden retriever named Phoebe that's a girl. Malachi wanted to give "her" a name. Sadly, I must confess that usually my boys aren't very creative with names. Usually they want to name everything either Malachi or "Tookie", which makes the name they came up with even funnier. For some reason, Malachi decided to call her "Assally", with an emphasis on the first part. It was almost a pretty name apart from that, and the fact that I'm almost 100% sure that it was a male dog. Aaron and I just snickered every time they would call the dog by that name. That part was funny too. They would alternate between being terrified when the dog came around and calling it back when they couldn't find it. I just really hope that it goes back to it's owner and it's rightful name. Otherwise, we'll all be stuck with "Assally".
