What a day! I am SO exhausted! I never realized how tiring it can be playing referee babysitter hostess to three exuberant Buddies at the same time!
The first thing we did was to go down to my studio because I really wanted Douglas to meet someone special to me. This is my own personal papier mache dragon posing with Douglas. They got along great! It was so cute to see Dougie acting like a little brother for a change rather than the big ,fire-breathing bad boy !
Little Bongo met my studio pal, Mr. Music, who’s very old but still likes to play pranks on unsuspecting monkeys! Boy, little Bongo got an earful!
SuperPickle wanted to try his hand at painting so I let him have a go at one of my paintings in progress. He did OK for a first time! (Notice the part he wanted to paint?)
It was soon time for lunch so I made us a nice picnic: pimento cheese sandwiches, grapes, and lemonade. The sun was shining and the had quite an appetite!
Douglas wandered off and suddenly these voluptuous wood nymphs who live out behind the barn were giggling and rubbing themselves all over him!I had to take a broom to them and they gave me the evil eye as they flew back into the forest! Uh, oh… I think I’ll be sorry for that one!
Bongo got excited to see a hardy kiwi vine in the backyard. He climbed all the way to the top! I guess he had a sugar high from all that lemonade!
I promised them an edventure and so I took them for a hard rock climb to burn off some of that energy. Douglas and Bongo had no trouble scaling the wall but SuperPickle was breathing hard by the time he reached the summit!
Ahhh, the view was worth the effort!
As promised I saved one little challenge for Douglas… the burn barrel. He lit it like a pro! And he was mighty proud of his firey display!
They basked in the warm sun for a little siesta. They liked the view of the old barn and while they dozed I took a tiny break myself!
Before we even realized it , it was time to call it a day. They looked rather pensive as the gazed out over the pasture here at the farm. I sure hope they had a good time. I know I did! But MAN, am I tired!
