Yesterday after church Greg and I took all the dogs down to the lake where my mom and Dwayne had been camping for the weekend. The weather was nice so they had invited us to come join them at the lake. To add to the fun, we asked our friends John and Leah if they wanted to join us. So they did and they had their dog Josie with them. We arrived around mid-afternoon and first we just wandered around the property taking John and Leah around to see the area. We walked over to the dam to check that area out, and of course the dogs were loving running around together! Then we just hung around on the dock, throwing the ball with the dogs, watching them swim, and enjoying the sunshine. The boys decided to go fishing for a while, so mom, Leah and I hung out on the dock. The weather was great! Not hot, but perfectly sunny and warm. And it’s so quiet and peaceful at the lake.
We had some fun tossing the ball just barely off the edge of the dock. Jack and Josie were hilarious trying to reach down and grab it. Jack doesn’t like jumping in to get it if it’s just right in front of him (I guess he realizes it seems pointless to waste all that energy when it’s just right there). But yet he can’t reach it! So they just whine and stretch and hover over it, and it DRIVES THEM CRAZY!! But it’s too funny for us!! 😉 Josie finally would jump in right on top of it to get it!
We took a break for dinner before it started getting dark. We grilled hamburgers and enjoyed dinner on the picnic table. Then Leah and I got to go out with the boys to fish just a little bit longer. But no luck this time. Such a fun day though!! So glad to spend it with family and friends 🙂
