At first, we went through some of the nearby neighborhoods ...

... then walked through CiCo Park/the county fairgrounds!

We walked up the big road and got to one of the entrances to Hudson Trail, as you saw yesterday. Here's another shot of us posing:
|Me and Cam at the trailhead|
Two things of note there - number one, you can tell we were getting a bit warm (we were about at the two mile mark by then) and number two, I like this shot better than yesterday's since neither one of us is looking at Mom. But I digress...
Next, we headed down Hudson Trail.
|"This feels nice, doesn't it, Cam?"|
"Yes! Much cooler in here!"
It was nice and shady down there, and that part is unpaved, so it's cooler on our feety-feet.
Before we knew it, we were back out in the hot sun again. We paused briefly for a photo by our water tower:
|"Hey, look, Peeps! Someone's following us!"|
"I wonder if they'll give us ear-scratchies?!"
Once we got to the water tower, it was all downhill and home! We got a quick drink, then it was right to work! That's right! Mom and Dad are in the midst of a huge landscaping project that requires lots of hours out in the sun, bending, pulling, sweating, shoveling, raking, moving rocks around, hauling heavy stuff, digging - and lots, lots more! It's exhausting! Fortunately for them, I'm right there with them, helping every step of the way.
|"I can oversee the whole project from here. I sure hope they aren't late with my lunch..."|
Well, not so much helping every step of the way as supervising from the comfort of the bed and an air-conditioned house. But I'm with them in spirit!!! Besides, supervising is hard work!
