Shadow Jumping

Mommy #2 and I went for a walk Labor Day. It was not even noon and already it was HOT!!!!
Not just HOT. It was H-O-T!!!! But I wanted to go for a walk and so did mommy, so we went. We walked down our street to the MAIN DRAG. From there, we walked UPHILLish to the next MAIN DRAG. All the way we asked ourselves - It this a WISE thing to do?
So we made up a game to help us deal with the DESERTlike HEAT!!!
We Shadow Jumped. It goes something like this.
Walk . . . walk . . . walk
AHHHHHH! Tree Shadow. Think I will stand here for a bit.
Walk . . . walk . . . walk
AHHHHHH! Doesn't this Fence Shadow feel delicious.
Because our neighborhood is pretty well established (in other words, OLD) there are a lot of big trees and vines to create very good shadows.
This game, along with tiptoeing through some newly watered grass, made the walk all the more enjoyable. I really like shadows - except for the indoor ones at night which kinda freak me out.

At least you went outside for Labor Day. It is a good thing you have a neighborhood with shadows. Florida neighborhoods lack trees and shade. We hope that the rest of your weekend was pugeriffic!
