This weekend, mah Mommy and Daddy take me to the Cook Forest. This are mah fav-o-rite ca-vation spot. I goes there last year and puts mah toes in the creek, so I are so excited to goes again this year. In the car, I suns myself!
We stops for mah cheeseburger, but Mommy say, “Lucy, cheeseburger give you farts. We gonna give you jus hamburgler this time.” I thinks, “I shows Mommy. Hamburgler gonna give me same farts hahaha.” (But it a good hamburgler anyway.)
Then we gets to our room, and I pouts for a million minutes acause Mommy and Daddy say I not allowed to go see the Fire Tower with them. This make me mad. I hear the Fire Tower so nice in the autumn! (They brings me home some chickens, so I forgives them.)
Mommy says, “Lucy you gotta get your sleeps so you has the energy for a hike in the mornin!” so I snuggles up on the pillows in mah speshul harness, and I dreams all night bout the woods. I are excited and all night I keeps wakin up thinkin, “IT ARE MORNIN!” but then it are not. I does this four-teen times and wakes Mommy and Daddy up all the four-teen times. Oops.
But then I knows it are finally mornin acause Mommy puts me in mah speshul backpack!! This mah backpack that I carries all the things in. I are helpful in mah backpack. You gets a booboo? I gots a Band-Aid. You gets lost? I gots a map! You gets thirsty? I got mah speshul water dish and I shares with you!!
Into the woods we goes!! In the woods, there like seven-million-billion trees! They are the prettiest of fall colors! And they all smells so good! And there all these bridges, and I likes to run across them verruh fast and slip around on the leaves! And then I sees the sunlight peekin through like the magic, and this mah fav-o-rite thing bout the woods.
I stand verruh still for this picture with mah Mommy. Mommy helps me walk through all the smell-nice things, and she helps me stay on the trail so I doesn’t get all the mud atween mah toes. Sometimes I still does though! It feel weird and skwish-ee! And it make mah toes brown! So Mommy walk me through the greenies to clean mah toes off. She such a nice Mommy, always watchin out for Lucy.
We walks a hundred miles!!! We goes all the way to a place called New York I thinks, and then we comes right back! It take no time at all acause we are so fast and we do not get dis-track-ted by the smell of trees! I walk so nice with mah backpack and mah leash and mah toes and mah smile. (Lucy’s Mommy would like to note that we walked 1.2 miles round trip, and Lucy stopped to smell everything.)
ANYWAY! We walks back to mah car, and this time, I walks with Daddy. But I always looks back to make shure Mommy don’t get lost in the woods! I even pro-teck them both when a crazy dog that look like Fat Piper come runnin at us. (Note from Lucy’s Mommy: Lucy actually hid behind her Daddy when this happened.)
Anyway. I do so good on mah walk, even if I were scareda that mean ol dog! I does a perfect sit at the end of the bridge, and all the girls on the other side say, “What a nice dog, she bee-have so much!” And I know that it aren’t always true, but I glad that someone think it are!
When we get in, I are verruh tired, so I takes a rest in mah little bed while Mommy and Daddy go pet the deer and eat the dinner. I wants to pet a deer so bad, but I knows I too little to do that yet. So I are jus real happy that they brings me home a steak nibblin from dinner and shows me pictures of the deer they met!
Mah ca-vation were so the verruh best ever. Last night, I gets such a good sleep on the big fluffa pillow. I has many nice dreams, and I does not wake Mommy and Daddy up by cryin at all. I cannot wait until we goes back again!
