Lucy, I'm Home!

Well, we finally got back home a little while ago and you know what? There's not a place called 'Camping' - it's when you go out in the woods and get to play. So, I like camping! There were all sorts of really great new smells and I got to play in the water and everything. I made sure the tall guy took a lot of pictures to show you so you will know what to look for if you ever get to go camping. And if you have never BEEN camping, if you show the pictures to your peoples, maybe they will take you camping as well.

First of all, evidently you have to drive a long time to go camping, because they are working on the roads and you have to take a long detour to get where you need to go! Needless to say, the tall guy was not happy about that, but we did get to see something called a 'MIME'. That is where they dig a big hole in the ground (even bigger than I could dig) and throw the dirt everywhere. We even got to get in behind a big truck from the MIME on the detour, so we got to go really slow. Boy, can you really see everything when you get behind one of the big trucks - especially if you are behind it for like 20 miles. I told the tall guy we should get out and walk, but he said then we would not have any way to get to the camping, so I just went back to sleep for a while.

Finally we got to the camping. We weren't staying in a cabinet (I think the tall guy needs to enunciate more clearly!) - we were staying in a cabin. Here's a picture of our cabin:

:) Not really. That was a cabin for a bird. Our cabin was really nice - it even had satellite tv. (The tall guy said that's about as much roughing it as he's willing to put up with!) It had been raining, but when it stopped, the tall guy took me on a walk. (I must have walked like 200 walks this weekend - I'm a walking expert now!) Here's one of the roads we walked down:

I knew something was up when I heard a noise like someone running water in a bathtub. So we walked a little bit more and THERE IT WAS:

Somebody had left on their garden hose and it had run everywhere. So I pulled the tall guy down to the water and I just jumped right in. (The tall guy was not too happy that I was pulling him down to the water, as the ground was really slippery. But he stopped before he got pulled into the water - More about that on another day!) I got to play in the water for a long time. I found a lot of sticks in the water, so I got to take them out and run around in the grass. (The tall guy called it a 'meadow' - I wonder if it belongs to that lady named Rachel?)

Taking in the sun in the meadow:

So after I played in the water for a while, the tall guy said it was time to head back to the cabin for a while, so we started walking back down the road. And, LO AND BEHOLD, what did I see?

It was a cow, but it was FROZE. Hmmmm, maybe that's where they get ice cream. I went up and asked for a small cone, but it just ignored me. So, I won't be talking to any more cows any time soon.

So, that's enough for one post - I've got lots more to tell you about camping in the next few days! Come back and visit if you can.


  1. Jack, what a great story about camping. So many adventures and lots of fun. Looking forward to the next chapter of the story. Sorry that cow fella didn't have an icecream for you though!!

  3. BEAUTIFUL!!! I SO want to go camping wiff you Jack!!!


  4. Wow Jack!!! The stream looked like a great place to play. Pretty road and trees!
    We don't like the 'road detours' either. Takes too long, and sometimes you don't know if you are going the right way!?!?!
    Glad you are a walking expert!!! Camping is fun, no??

    Hugs and snaggle-tooth kisses,
    Sierra Rose and mom

  5. WOWOWOWOWOW...Tell TG to post those pictures soon Jack I want to go to camping too!!!!!


  6. Camping...hmmm...I don't think we have done that yet. I'm not sure Mom would go for something like that. Her idea of camping is a 5-star hotel I think. Silly hooman. You look so very cute camping Jack!

    Chihuahua kisses,
    The Munchkins
