Wow, it's been a kick ass year in the life of Norman!

Here are some things he enjoyed most...

Going on a trip to L.A.

And reuniting with his "cousin" Motlie!

Becoming certified as a Therapy Dog and attending his first 5 visits!

Visiting many of California's beautiful beaches in San Francisco, Marin, 
Ventura, Santa Barbara, Santa Monica and Venice Beach!

Going on lots of awesome hikes, especially at our new favorite trail 
that is just a couple minutes from the house!

Loving our new house and most of all, the addition of a huge deck...perfect for sunbathing!

Since moving out of our studio apartment and into the new house, we've been able to have many overnight guests and visitors. Kaya & Norman love this!

Going to a K9 pool party & swimming in a pool for the first time! 

Meeting the adorable Violet, a new puppy in our neighborhood, and getting together for regular play dates! Norman is a huge fan of puppies...

Going on many trips to Lake Tahoe where we get to spend time with my parents & Zoey!

And of course, let's not forget, many many cuddles...

Happy Birthday to my favorite guy in the whole world!!
