|The Sign for the park we stayed at.|
|Right before our morning walk. Simon was not happy about the picture.|
We arrived to the camp ground in the late afternoon got the dogs out and set up the tent and unpacked our stuff. It was the middle of the week and with it being late in September we had the whole camp ground to ourselves.
|Sadie had to keep an eye on all food prep.|
That first night after we set up camp we walked the dogs and cooked dinner. The dogs really enjoyed both the walk and watching dinner getting made. After dinner we made a camp fire and made some s'mores. The dogs didn't really seem to care about the fire but neither tried to get to close to it. At one point Simon heard something and got all alert and growl-barked a warning at the darkness. We shined our flashlights in the area but we couldn't see or hear anything. We had seen a lot of rabbits around the park that afternoon and we thought it might have been one of them. It was cute that Simon was protecting his family from the scary darkness. Sadie kept looking at him like "what is it bro?" But still cute.
|Our campfire so much fun.|
|Sadie all ready for bed.|
Simon proved to me once again how wonderful is it to have a puppy who is kennel trained and comfortable and happy with it. We were able to have a kennel in the tent and he was happy to settle down in it. He slept well all night and I slept well not having to worry about him having an accident or getting into and chewing up our stuff. I know a lot of people don't like kenneling there dogs but it is a wonderful training tool to have.
|Simon says wake me when breakfast is ready.|
|The very pretty river.|
After the walk we made breakfast and then took another walk Simon got to practice having the backpack on. He is still pretty young so we didn't have him carry anything other than a few empty plastic bags but I am hoping starting slow will make it easy for him when he is old enough
|Us on our walk.|
Also thank you Amy I really appreciate all your help and we had a great time. We can't wait till we get to go again.
