I then called 911. Ft Myers PD showed up pretty quickly. We corralled the dogs yet again and they called animal control. For the next 25 minutes, I stood with 3 of Ft Myers finest, trying to keep the dogs from running away again. I gave them some dry cat food I still had in the back of the car. They both kept licking us and it was clear they had been buddying around together so they started to play with each other. Finally animal control arrived and I carried the little Chihuahua into the truck and they had to convince the bigger dog. Eventually, they got him into the cage as well. I was so glad to be able to help these guys... they were really sweet dogs and I an sure that if I hadn't driven along side them at 3 mph they would have ended up getting run over for sure.
Once I got home, there was no way I was napping. Rachel was awake already and Tommy had to run, so I had to stay up. I fell asleep after I put her down for her nap at 11:30. I guess Tommy forgot all about the fact that we were supposed to go to Mango Mania early this afternoon, because he ended up coming home from church, changing his clothes and then just hanging out in the family room until he fell asleep too... He was up when I woke up at 3, but by then it was far too late to go to the festival. I was so disappointed. I was hoping to find out exactly what kind of mango tree we have, and then I was going to buy 2 more of them.. one for my parents and a 2nd one for us!
Oh well... guess we will wait till next year... but to make up for it, I made Mango Ice Cream. I just had a little taste (since I fell asleep while it was churning, so now it needs to go back to the freezer for a while) and it came out super yummy... Gonna write down exactly what I did this time so I don't forget how to make it for next year! Sure hope Rachel likes it! Oh wait... I'm talking about MY KID... of course she's gonna love it!
So here is my little hippie flower child, just having some random acts of cuteness... I LOVE those jeans... but they fit a bit funny in the tush... she doesn't seem to have enough of one to fill them out!
