We found this wicked spiderweb on the trail. Creepy!
Buddy was so hot, it was almost funny! He's like "adventure dog" when it's all downhill in the beginning, but when it's time to hike back up, he's totally out of breath, and tries to find shade wherever he can. He was panting like this like the whole way up, even though we gave him water every 5-10 minutes. I don't know if he can hack it again!
Also, Doug and I took our first baby-sitting experience this weekend, and went on our first date without Jack. My good friend, Cecily, and her husband came over and watched him while we went out. We're both still a little nervous to leave him with one of the young women in our ward. I'll admit, I did miss him a little, but it was so nice to actually eat a hot meal together. We went to Winger's and chowed down on their delicious wings. Then we went to see Wall-E. I thought it was okay. Worth seeing, and a great message, but a little slow in parts.
On the way home, it was so great to totally blast the radio. I haven't done that in so long! You can't really crank it up when there's a baby in the car, you know? And I always have Jack with me. It was fun to see Jack in a good mood when we came home, and Cecily said he didn't cry at all. What a good little boy! Anyway, thanks for watching him, Cec! I may have to take you up on that again soon.
