|Smudge had a solo ride...
|But soon asked a group of children there if she could play with them.
|It took JJ a bit longer to venture into the group.
|Smudge doesn't hesitate to reach out and ask to join any and every group going.
|After our picnic lunch the kids ran around pretending to be seagulls. The did a pretty good impression too.
|We stopped to watch some Canada Geese peck through the grass for lunch...
|Then explored some big rocks at the water's edge.
|We stopped to watch a couple of gentlemen race their remote controlled sail boats...
|...then continued on our walk. Smudge picked up a little friend on the walk and mothered her along.
|Next was a stop at the playground to get rid of any excess energy before heading home.
|Buppa had to stand by in case they ran into trouble on the sliding pole.
|JJ needed help reaching the pole, but once attached, he did just fine.
