Katie here. I guess I have to do all the explaining cause mama is lazy. You’d think this was my blog or something, she hardly does anything anymore. She says she’s on vacation.
So anyway, we’ve been over in Columbus Georgia the past few days, visiting family and taking it easy. Well. I’ve been taking it easy. Mama and family have been working hard on projects and stuff.
They did stop working for a bit to take me on a walk along the Columbus waterfront. What a pretty place!
We walked and walked for about a hundred million miles. Good thing mama had water and treats for me. We watched people going down the rapids in a big yellow rubber raft…
…and in little tiny kayaks. Seems like the water would be way too cold for that! Plus it would mess up your hair. I’m pretty sure I’m not a kayak kind of girl.
Mama says she likes kayaks but wouldn’t want to go down those rapids! Smart mama!
We saw lots of pretty stuff. We walked in Alabama and in Georgia! I don’t think I’ve ever walked in two states on one walk before!
We walked so long that I slept all night without bugging mama! Mama said that was a wonderful thing. I slept with the new toy my Aunt got me. Isn’t it cute? (I’m cute too..it’s OK, you can say it out loud.)
Anyway, we’re back home at the lake now, and today mama took me to Smith Mountain again for a walk. (Cause I was bugging her while she was napping. I think she wanted revenge.)
This time we walked up what is usually the exit down from the mountain top. It was very steep.
Good thing mama had me to show her the way! Sometimes I had to drag her up steep passages!
These are baby long leaf pines. Mama loves these trees. I think they are pretty too.
We had to go way up here and I scampered right up. It was awesome.
But about 3/4 of the way up I figured that was enough and I started back down the path. Mama said oh no..we’re not going back down this steep path and she took me all the way to the top!!!
Good thing I didn’t have to go all the way to the top of the fire tower too!
We walked back to the car down the road. There was lots of pretty stuff to see there too….including native azaleas in bloom.
I was a slowpoke on the road down, but as soon as I saw my car I started trotting ahead of mama. Enough is enough mama!
Time to get a little shut eye….mama says we have a big day tomorrow. I have no idea what she’s got in store for me now, but if there’s anything I’ve learned it’s to be well rested!
