Cassie don't change your hotel plans, I think we are going to stick with Rockwood Park. Sally is double checking the pavilion but even if it's booked for some reason, I can bring some shade and we'll pitch our own. 

This party may just be epic. laughing

Tee...hee..... Good job Tina! 🙂 🙂

Okay....here we go! And I sure wish I had a way to make what I'm about to write all colprful and vold and indented, etc! 🙂 Tavlets are truly "differently abled"!

ROCKWOOD PARK. CHESTERFIELD COUNTY, VIRGINIA. SATURDAY, MAY 27th. Shelter #4. 3:00-8:00
Also reserved Snelter #4 SUNDAY MAY 28th Shelter #4. 3:00-8:00

There is a fenced dog area within about 100 yds from this covered "shelter". This should be a fairly easy location for people to find coming just for the day. It's off .major interstates/highways.

There are a couple of dog friendly hotels in "general" vicinity. Great opportunity to do some "shared room"'...maybe even adjoining rooms for anyone wanting to spend the night.

I know we have some of our "national" visitors and "international" visitors staying in a house (or two) "somewhere" in the state of Virigina!! 🙂 Not exactly sure where Rockwood Park is in relation to their place, but I have a feeling they'll get to see a lot of Virginia on the way to the Park! 🙂 🙂

This is just going to be MAGICAL!! PURE MAGIC!!!

Our story: Broke rear leg in June 2013 - non-conclusive results for cancer so leg was plated and pinned. Enlarged spleen in September 2013 and had it removed and was diagnosed with Hemangiosarcoma and started chemotherapy. Became a Tripawd January 8th, 2014 and definitive Hemangiosarcoma diagnosis. Three major surgeries in 7 months and Shelby took them all like a champ only to lose her battle to cancer in her brain. We had 8 amazing extra months together and no regrets. #shelbystrong #loveofmylife

Looks awesome! Izzy and I will try to make it. She's not responding to chemo so far so we'll have to wait and see but I sure hope I can get up there with my girl!

ooookay, maybe, just maybe

I may be able to go on the big swim across the Atlantic and emerge from the water right on the Virginian shore... checking the currents right now.

Ok, actually I meant to go to Florida early May anyway. so maybe it's time for some road-trippin'. I would be flying into Richmond and then drive to Florida. I would so love to make that happen!!

Thing is, I can't really book anything all that early because I have a few things to clearify here before I dare book annnnnd there is the issue with Manni's health (It's gonna be 16 months in May and you all know what that means, so I'm a little scared to leave for two weeks. But hey, there's always cancellation...).

so, if you would and if I may: count me in as a POSSIBLE please!

*YAY!!*

That would be FANTASTIC, Tina. I do so hope you'll be able to make it.

I don't yet know whether I'm coming or not but, if I do, I will probably be flying to Washington, then taking a car from there. And I'd be only too happy to give anyone a lift, if that would be helpful, especially if they could nudge me occasionally just to remind me what side of the road we're supposed to be on (hehe, just kidding...)

I'm not sure yet either. But I guess Washington is a good idea, too (did you know that you drive through Dumfries on the way to Richmond? 🙂  )  How 'bout I do the driving though 🙂  🙂 RIGHT side of the road and all.... 🙂

Let's just stay in touch regarding the travel plan!
