Labor Day walk

Yesterday was Labor Day and since it was a holiday, mom and dad decided to take me out for a walk at some lesser-known parks to try to avoid crowds. So first we went to a little nature trail near here and I got to walk dragging my long line! I love that because I get to smell and smell and can run to catch up with mom and dad. After our first walk, we stopped at a grocery store and picked up a lunch and went to another nature trail. This one is even better than the first (but I didn't get to drag the long line - too much poison ivy, mom says!) The trail goes down to the river and the vegetation is so lush and varied. We usually find a lot of bugs and dragonflies there. Part of the trail floods easily so a boardwalk has been built so we can avoid the water. Mom and dad took folding chairs and their lunch and we sat on the boardwalk and ate. Of course mom remembered to bring a lunch snack for me! We had the place all to ourselves - our own private get-away! It was awesome!

Tonight mom is playing in a string quartet concert in a town about an hour from here. I get to go (since the concert is in a park!) and grandpa and grandma are going with us. Should be fun - I love to hear mom play. I've been listening to her practice and think she will do just fine. We'll try to get some photos and share them with you tomorrow!
Gotta zoom!

Looks like we all just 'parkin it' this weekend. Yours look like a much nicer place to visit....very lush and green. Today is the first cool day we have had in months...mom has opened all the windows and we have been playing like crazy outside. Can't wait to see you at the concert...you should ask your mom to put a sound clip on your blog.
