My Kind of Day

There's only one reason to be happy about my day ending like this....

It started like this!

The Puddle Dive

This morning it was just me and Mom heading out to the Park. It was nice to have some 1 on 1 time. The weather was already a little muggy and since I do came fully equipped with a lovely red full length fur....I knew I could make it work for me....and boy did I. (Ben would be proud of me!)

We altered our path so we would get to the doggy water fountain (sorry - photog was busy making the fresh stream of water come out of the magical fountain - apparently she couldn't do that AND take pics!)

After the drinking fountain...we headed across the Bethesda Terrace....and sweet Jesus, what did we see....GOLDENS AND LABS AND ASSORTED OTHERS...IN THE LAKE.

The Wet Look
Mom even let me join in on the fun!

Big Splash
Now THIS is fun!!!!

We joined up with a group of friends from the neighborhood - and as we headed around the lake and through the ramble to approach the Boathouse from the west side....everyone was paying attention to this woman with her pet birds!

I'm not a big bird fan - but while they provided some distraction - I snuck around the rock and went BACK IN THE WATER!!! (Suddenly I'm a big fan of birds - HUGE in fact!)

We finally made it to the Boathouse Cafe

where treats, muffins and bacon were there for the asking (OK. Fine. They were there for the begging - but we all know we get whatever we want - look at those faces!)

After the Boathouse we headed over to the Conservatory Pond - watched the remote controlled boats. Met up with Aunt D. Meandered through the Park some more. It was a great day!

From the time we left - until the time we got back - it was a 6 hour adventure! When we got home I knew it was tub time. I got a quick rinse - Mom got soaked. PERFECT!

I hope you all had a great weekend. Until our next adventure...

Lola said...

What a day! That was an excellent noseventure and you must be feeling very satisfied and happy right now. Also sleepy. You're probably going to need to rest up from this one. At least I know I would.

wags, Lola

KT and Lady said...

Oh fun....we went swimming this weekend too. Lake Washington was our destination. A good time was had by all, but no bath necessary after the swim. Lady forgot to puddle dive....BOL

Well I did not know that puppies could get in the water there!

But now I do! :)

Remington said...

Well worth it my friend!

Jack -

It is against the RULES for puppies to go in the water - and I hear there is a fine that would take my lifetime allowance to pay off....but sometimes a girl's got to do what a girl's got to do. Besides - the Labs were doing it first! (And did I mention it was really muggy!)

WOW that looks like a blast!! I can't WAIT until I am able to swim like that!! I'm still scared of the water, but getting more interested everyday!
