Hmmm, it seemed pretty strange to have a weekend in the middle of the week today!!! Julie slept over last night, and she and Mom and Laurie went to work in the kennel and got home EARLY, like 9:30 early!!
That meant we had ALL day to play!!!
Of course, it was VERY, VERY hot. Mom and Julie took us down into the lab pen as soon as they got home so it wouldn't be so hot. Even so, it was plenty warm.
But, last night, after work, Mom and Julie went off kayaking!! Of course, I got to go, along with Toto and Beanie. We were going to meet Laurie and her hubby up there but there was a problem.
You see, there are TWO ponds where we go...there is the Upper pond and the Lower pond. We usually go to the upper pond, but for some reason, I guess Mom told Laurie we would go to the lower one instead. Probably cuz they have a canoe and the upper one is pretty shallow since the dam got damaged by Irene and it isn't fixed yet.
Anyway, Mom couldn't leave until after work so they decided to meet at 6. Well, when we got there, we drove into the lower pond and no one was there. Laurie said they would be there earlier, so Mom guessed they must be at the upper pond instead.
Of course, she forgot she said the lower pond, so first we waited and ate our dinner, then we decided to go anyway in the upper pond. We paddled all around, watched some geese with their babies, and generally had a fine time.
When we got back to shore Mom's friend who lives near the ponds was there so she and he were chatting since they hadn't met up since last Fall. Anyway, in the course of the conversation, Mom mentioned she was supposed to meet some friends and he said they WERE at the lower pond!!! Oops!!!
So, we loaded the kayaks and drove down but they had already left. Of course, when we all got home Laurie emailed Mom photos of the beavers, including a BABY ONE, that they were watching in the lower pond. Gosh darn it all!!!
At least Mom let us get ice cream on the way home, then Julia couldn't eat all of hers so Mom let us have that on top of our supper. NO ONE left any food in our dishes, BOL!!!
