Three Lakes Park Walk and a Promotion

A few weekends ago, we were invited on a walk with the Around The Town Hounds walking group in Richmond.  For the July walk, Three Lakes Park in Richmond was selected.  It was a really nice place to walk and is a park tucked back behind subdivisions.  It is one of those if you did not know it was there, you would never know it was there.  🙂 Those are the best kind.  Nice and quiet.  We pretty much had the trails to ourselves.  🙂  We met up early in the morning, so the temps were not too hot and we enjoyed a stroll around three lakes.  There were about 20 hounds walking with their humans.  Nice turnout!  We and our pups had a great time!

Unfortunately, the setting on my camera got bumped during the walk so the pictures are not great.

In the van on the way home I realized what had happened with the setting.  Hate when that happens!!

Van ride home.  Still happy pups.

And in other news, a few weeks ago I received a very nice promotion to Medical Office Coordinator at work.  🙂  For those who do not know, I work for a group of Cardiac and Thoracic surgeons in Richmond.  Started the job 4 years ago this September with no medical office experience and have worked my way up.  It certainly is nice to be recognized when you are doing a good job and receive a promotion for your hard work.  Mitch says it is well deserved.  I appreciate that!  I have always prided myself on a good hard work ethic and it certainly has served me well in every job I have had.  I am finally in a work environment where I can really build my career and keep moving up.  It is a good feeling and I have given myself a nice pat on the back for a job well done and Mitch gave me a nice date night out at Felmings (no pictures of our dinner).  Below is a pic of us when we returned home.

If you have a Flemings in your area, we highly recommend it!  The food is phenomenal.  For the foodies out there, here is a breakdown of what we enjoyed.  No doggie bags needed.  It was too good to leave anything on the plate.  🙂

We rarely ever go out to eat, but when we do, we don’t want to be disappointed.  More fun to come, so stay tuned!
