This is my favorite time of the year for picnics. We’re past the hottest part of the summer, but the weather hasn’t turned chilly yet. Here’s my picnic photo from yesterday:
We went down to the river and spent some family time batting at bugs and teasing one another. Surprise of the day: Our puppy, who is now around 9 months and weighs about 8 pounds, dove into the fast flowing river and started to doggie paddle! She’s always been a bit nervous about water, but yesterday her attitude was totally different. Thankfully she was on her leash, though, and was close enough to us that we were able to grab her before she was swept away. We learn something new every day with her!
