I got to join mom and dad's Meetup group for a hike and picnic today. Mom and dad didn't have to work today because it is Memorial Day. Mom says it is a special day to remember the soldiers who were in all the wars. Personally I don't understand anything about war. It is a human thing. I get along with everyone! Mom says she doesn't understand it either. We drove to Minute Man Park which is about 20 minutes from our house. I have been there before so I knew where I was. Most everyone else was late arriving so we had to wait for a bit. Mom sprayed us all down with bug spray. It is a natural bug spray that both dogs and humans can use. It was a beautiful day with lots of sunshine. Once everyone arrived we started our walk. Actually one human got lost and started walking from a different parking lot! We never did find her. There were lots of people walking, jogging and riding their bicycles. There were some other dogs too. I liked that. Mom brought my special water bottle. It opens up into a bowl. I was glad because it was hot outside. Mom gave me frequent water stops and anything I didn't drink she poured on my back to help keep me cooler. We walked about an hour and a half. It was nicest in the shade!

After the hike we drove down the road to the park's visitor center. One of mom and dad's friends named Karen rode with me in the back seat. She had ridden her bike to the park. There was plenty of room for both of us though. At the visitor's center they had picnic tables and a bathroom for the humans. Daddy found a perfect picnic table in the shade. Mom's friend, Victoria had mats so we covered the table with the mat and made a table cloth. They had a band playing music. We got to relax under the trees, eat and listen to music. Mom brought cookies for me to eat. I tried to dig in the dirt but mom and dad told me not too. I had a fun time, but I am really tired now, so I think I will end my diary and take a nap. I hope everyone has a fun and safe Memorial Day!
