I heard them talking earlier last week about maybe not going to the lake 'cause it was supposed to rain and stuff. I'd rather stay home then too. It's boring at the lake when all we get to do is sit inside. We don't get to go for walks and stuff and no one ever comes to visit.
Anyway, Friday comes and the boxes and bags are packed and ready to go. But it is yucky outside. Blah. It's going to be a terrible weekend, I think. But once, when I leaned over the front seat for a hug, Mom told me to be patient because I was going to get to see my BFF Bella!!!! I perked right up then.
But when we got to the cabin, no Bella! I sniffed all over the place. I could smell her. She must have been here, but where was she now? All night I waited, but she never came. I just moped around the rest of the night. I was really looking forward to playing with her.
The next morning, I really wanted to play. Mom and I went for a walk. I don't think she wanted to go very far. She told me we were only going to walk until I did my duty. I'll fool her, I thought. I just won't go and we'll get to walk for a long time. Mom's pretty smart though, and she caught on to that trick.
Once we got back to the cabin, I could tell something was up. They looked like they were getting ready to go somewhere. Left alone again, I suppose.
But, no! Wait. I get to go too! We're going to see BELLA!
First we had some things to do. They had to do some shopping, so I had to stay in the car, but I don't mind that really. I get to watch all the people going by and once in awhile, someone stops and talks to me through the window. I like when that happens--it makes the time go faster.
Finally, they tell me one more store. They go in for a just a little bit and guess what! When they came out, they had JOSH AND THE KIDS WITH THEM! I wanted to get to them so bad, but no one would let me out of the car. And then, we had to go to another store and another (really, I don't think they know what one more store means!). The kids kept coming up to the window and talking to me, but I wanted to play.
Finally, they are done and we drive to Bella's house. They let me out and hook me up. I try to play with the kids before Bella comes out, but I forget that sometimes, when I jump on them, it scares them a little or they fall down. I've got to remember to stay off!
Finally, Bella comes out. We are both so excited. We hug and talk at the same time. We race circles around each other and jump for joy.
I love lake time.
