Mother's Day at the Dog Park

Will, Katie, and I took Sawyer to the dog park for a fun afternoon of sun and swimming. Happy Mother's Day to mothers of all children--furry and bald:

Sawyer doesn't seem to be concerned that Will drives with his eyes shut.

Walking to the lake.

Katie to Sawyer: "I'll beat you there!"

Me and my two girls, Katie and Sawyer.

Sawyer: "Where's the ball?"

Katie loves to jump in the lake.

Sawyer shaking dry.

Katie loves to throw the tennis ball into the lake for Sawyer to retrieve.

We are so grateful for the Shawnee Mission Park off-lease dog area.

Sawyer: "Come on, Bald Puppy. Throw the ball!"

Sawyer is half Beagle and half Labrador Retriever. She's a natural swimmer who loves to fetch.

Time to head toward the woods.

Katie: "Let's go on an adventure!"

Will explaining to Katie something about interrupting convoys with trees.

"You could really slow down your enemy this way..."

Sawyer stays close to Katie, the ball holder.

It was a beautiful spring day. Warm and sunny at the lake. The shady woods felt good.

We reached the end of the trail and stopped to cool off in the breeze.

Back home, ready for a big nap.
