Today was the 2nd annual (for us) Golden Picnic. It's a picnic sponsored by the GRRNT or Golden Retriever rescue of North Dallas. It's a great cause and an even greater excuse to bring Jack to Lake Grapevine to swim, play and frolic with his friends. The weather could NOT have been more perfect! Although, from all the rain this past week, the beach was flooded. There was no sand to walk or play on today...just grass. I guess that was good for us because Jack didn't get nearly as dirty as last year.
Jack fetched tennis balls out of the water for a while and then played Frisbee with Gary. Then, we went to play on the play ground. Jack made it up the slide with Gary and Gavin, which surprises me. Jack is normally afraid of heights and things that are high. But he got up there. We couldn't get him to slide down, though. It was a lot of fun, but we only stayed for a little while. The wee one was getting tired so we had to head home. It was a perfect day with my perfect little family! Well, almost perfect. There was that time today when I kneeled in poop, and Gary had to clean me off with a wet one. But other than that, it was pretty perfect! I wish I could bring my sweet Jack with us more places.
