The Simple Pleasures












Mom says that it's going to be the high 80's for the next week so we thought we would get an early start and how lucky am I? We went to two parks this morning. First we went to my favorite lake and had a wander around in the trees. Mom actually remembered the bread for the ducks and geese today and there was LOTS of them including babies. I ssssooooo wanted to chase them but Mom said I have to "behave" !!! Can you believe that?












Next we went to the park with the walkway in the trees. This is the park with all the honey suckle and look what we found - a pink and yellow one. Isn't it just the prettiest and it smells so good! Mom also took a photo of the little lake here, we loved how the trees were reflected in the water. It was so calm and tranquil. Do you see the little raft with ramps off the side - Mom says that is for the turtles so they can sun themselves. There is actually a small turtle sitting on the bottom of the ramp. If you click on the picture you can see it bigger. Hope every furbody has a terrific weekend.

PS - Mom finally gave in and I now have my own FACEBOOK page - would love some buddies - so look me up under "Reilly Cowspotdog" Now I just have to figure out what it's all about !

That's really nice park. I'll bet it was relaxing to wander around under the trees.

Two parks in a row! You're so lucky!
And the parks are so beautiful for walks too. The lake picture is indeed gorgeous and I saw the turtle too.
It looks so sunny and bright there but our place is full of thunderstorms and heavy rain recently so we can't really go out at all.

Wow, we've never seen pink/yellow honeysuckle! That's cool! I bet if you told mom "look, there's Elvis!" you could get at least one good duck chase in! :)

Getting to go to two parks in one day is so awesome, Reilly! We love to see the baby ducks in the springtime and pink honeysuckle is very pretty!

Dawn said...

Wow! TWO parks in ONE day? Are you kidding me? Katie and I will go today, it's our only day without rain in the past 10 days and the future 4 days at least.

LOVE the reflections and how cool that they made a turtle sundeck!!

What pretty parks! Sam is a little too sick to do much exploring today - but maybe next weekend!

Mom is sending you a friend request right now!

Beautiful park!!! You should have been allowed to go after those birds & ducks. It would be so much fun!

The simple things are the best. Nothing like a belly rub or scratch behind the ears. Dog treats rank high too.

Have fun and enjoy yourself.
