We had a brief reprieve from the heat this weekend.
Did mum take advantage of the cool weather to work on my cooling vest?
But we did take a fun trip to one of the dog parks. Maple Grove is a large park bordered by a river. There are little trails through the woods and wider trails in wide open spaces.
We tried to go down to the river. The river is still very high due to the spring flooding and flowing quite swiftly so mum decided it would be better to look and not attempt to swim. In order to get to the river, we had to cross a large patch of ground that had been muddy, but has since dried up due to the heat and lack of fresh rain.
This combination has left a really interesting field of cracked, dried ground with deep tracks left-over from wetter times. After the cool woods, the trail opened up to a large field with a wide path cut through tall grass. I looked up into the sky and this was my view.
Mum wanted to show just how tall the grass had grown so off we went into the brush.
Not to be outdone, the Will decided he needed to pose in the grass as well. Rather, in the weeds. No, I don’t know what he was doing either. You gotta love The Will.
By the time we got back to the car, the temperature had risen considerably and I was seriously wishing my cooling vest was ready. I had to settle for flopping in front of the air conditioner for the drive home.
