Introducing Scooters to the new dog park!

September 23rd, 2010

Back in March, the Bubbers King and I took the Scooter-tots to our brand new dog park.

“Whoo-haaaa!!!!”

P1050614

“I love the dog park!!”

P1050616

Yesiree, if Scooters was anything like his mother, father, brother, uncle, aunt, cousin, grandma or grandpa, I knew he’d love dogs, too!

The only thing was, we were going to a new dog park now.  It’s at the same park as the old one, just in a different location (it’s a huge park!) and it’s a long walk into it.

They’ve also got two sections now!

One is “Open Meadow”.  Which we learned really means: packs of humongous dogs racing around like rabid banshees.

And it scares the bejeebers out of little kids.  And mothers of little kids.  (Which is why there are no pictures of my children in that section.  I was too busy worrying about my boys!)

Then there’s the other section.  The “Shy/Senior/Low Impact” area.  How cool (and hilarious!) is that?

This ended up being the perfect spot for us!

It had been a while since we’d gone to the dog park.

So Bubbers needed to warm up with some nice, small ones.

P1050630

Oh man, he’s so cute!

P1050639

Oh double man, he’s so cute, too!!!

And he loved it!  I really should take him back now that he’s a walking terror.  He’d go bananas chasing anything with fur!!

Bubbers also found the little “low impact” hill.

P1050641

The perfect size for little dogs.

P1050645

And little Woogas.

*sigh*

Someday we’ll get a dog.

P1050651

Uh-oh…  Did I say that outloud?

Our new (to us) van!

We weren’t even looking for a minivan, but Heavenly Father pretty much dropped this unbelievable deal into our laps, so we took the hint.  :)

And what a blessing!  Every time we use it, I’m amazed at how wonderful it is for children.  The Bubbers King loves that he can swing open the door and climb in with such ease!

P1210696

And someday Sir Scooters will appreciate the same thing.  But for now, he’s a little resentful of the new space between him and his brother.  He can’t reach over and antagonize his brother anymore.  :)

Yesiree, we feel super blessed.  Two wonderful (and cute!) boys.  And a swagger wagon to drive them around in.  What more could a mother want?

p.s.  Does anyone want to buy our Grand Am?  It’s for sale now! :)
