As the days have grown warmer, Mommy has been coming outside with us to play for longer periods of time in the afternoons. She and Hunter sit in the grass under the maple tree (it has the best shady spot), and Dixie and I play with each other and the tennis balls. When we are tired from all of our running around, we all sit together in the shade to relax. Mommy sometimes brings a few things with her: book, snack, drink, camera, phone, and always the Chuck-it. (We can't take Dixie outside without the Chuck-it!)
Since it was Friday, Mommy decided to relax with a glass of wine. Last year, Mommy's principal gave out plastic wine glasses to celebrate the end of the school year. (Can you really call it a glass if it's made of plastic? But calling it a cup doesn't seem right since it has a stem!) Mommy thought Friday afternoon was the perfect time to use the glass because she was going outside. She loaded her arms up with all of her goodies and headed out to the shady spot.
Mommy was playing fetch with Dixie and even played along when Hunter asked her to throw his blanket (it doesn't go far, which is good for him). While her back was turned, I was a bad girl. I moved in on her wine glass! After all, it was hot outside and I needed to cool off. I liked that glass of pinot grigio so well, I decided to drink all of it. When Mommy turned back around, my tongue was planted so far down in the glass I couldn't make a fast enough getaway. She was NOT happy.
Here's to a great weekend! Enjoy your long Memorial Day weekend. Cheers!Jenna
