this morning the boys and i headed foothills of the san gabriel mountains for a hike. along the way owen informed me of his plans for getting his own dog (a topic of frequent discussion in our family lately).
owen: mommy, maybe when i'm 6, i can have a dog
me: i think that would be great, we could bring the dog hiking too
owen: how about a brown and white dog, that's medium-sized?
owen: and we'll call him "musk"
me: that sounds like a good plan
owen: am i going to be six in one month?
