|The Old Farmstead|
Yesterday, Mom and Dad spent the whole day outside cleaning out flower beds and planting flowers in flower pots. Some of the time we got to go out but most of the time we had to stay up on the deck. I escaped once and took Dad for a run. I was trying to get to the water to swim but Dad had other ideas. He would go one way so I would go the other but Mom finally tricked me with a treat and caught me. Mom said she wished she had a video recorder - it could have made "Funniest Home Videos" In the evening a neighbor pulled their boat up on the beach and Mom and Dad went on their first boat ride. We didn't get to go.
Today Mom said it will be our day to spend some quality time together. First Mom said all of us are going for a walk around the lake then I will get to go swimming. I feel soooo sorry Ruthie can't swim but by next weekend she will be well enough. I looked at her stitches this morning in the mud room and almost all of the scabs are gone.
LOVE Lake Living !!
