Hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July! We took the Dog and the canoe up to the lake for a picnic.
Somehow the Dog's cable got left in the truck so the kids decided to tie the Dog up to a bush with some baling twine. Yes, he is a very good Dog and didn't fuss much while we were eating. After lunch the canoe was taken to the lake and all the humans went for a ride or swim in the lake. After traveling across the lake and back, G and I went to check on the Dog. He met us on the way to the picnic site with a 1' piece of baling twine tied to his collar. Oops. None of the other picnickers (with their unleashed dogs) said anything to me as G and I dragged him back to the picnic site, so I am optimistic that he didn't make a nuisance out of himself while we were on the lake. After I retrieved the rest of the baling twine and the camera, we went back down to the lake and waited for the boaters. Here they are with the camera zoomed all the way. They are standing on the opposite side of the lake. The lake is only about 25 acres in size, so it was a nice one to paddle around. The rest of the family waiting (notice the baling twine on the Dog). Almost back... After returning home from the lake for supper, we went up to the city for the fireworks show. M got to attempt his first fireworks photos. That was our 4th. How was yours?
