Today Davey, Buster and I headed over to our little local lake.
Buster did some serious “busting” through the water. He got me soaking wet with his jumping around. Davey tried leading him around in the water. No easy feat for a little guy.
We had a little picnic of Nilla Wafers and strawberries, and we chatted. Davey has become very very into Pokemon, and he enjoys explaining how it all works.
Buster learned about Pokemon as well.
I had brought some acrylic paint along because I thought Davey might want to paint some rocks. He told me that we could not do that. “Mama, you are an outlaw!” (I’ve discussed the possibility of yarn bombing with him as well, and I get the same response.)
He watched me paint a rock first. I get very intricate and fancy in my painting.
He decided it might not be too “illegal”, and he decided to paint too.
We went to work on several rocks.
I enjoyed it. I think Davey liked it too. He particularly enjoyed the placement of the rocks. We wanted to leave them for someone to just happen to find. I placed them like this.
Davey was not satisfied with my arrangement. He went to work.
He thought this was much better.
We splashed around with Buster, painted rocks, and experimented with what floats and what doesn’t float. He also enjoyed watching another dog swim out and fetch stick after stick.
I took several pictures. He told me several times that I should not put them on facebook. My blog is ok though, he said. I am not sure that I mentioned to him that I have the blog set up to share the link with facebook. I think he’s ok with it though. For now.
