We spent the day at Southhaven Park for Mother’s Day. TJ really wanted to take Cinnamon. We planned on renting a rowboat and figured it would be interesting to see how Cinnamon would handle it. It was a beautiful, sunny day and Cinnamon was excited to get out. She hestitated for a moment when we got to the dock but a little nudging got her on the boat and after that she felt right at home.
We fed the ducks, geese and swans and Cinnamon seemed to enjoy checking out the wildlife. A couple of the swans were a bit pushy when it came to getting some bread and they were hissing at Cinnamon. Cinnamon was barking right back and getting closer and closer until she took the plunge and jumped into the lake. She doggie paddled around the boat a bit and then we hauled her back in. She soaked the rest of us when she shook herself dry. TJ was cracking up the whole time. I’ll try to post a gallery of a few pictures soon.
TJ has been pretty busy lately. A nine-year-old with lots of new interests. Here’s where you can stay up-to-date with his latest news and pictures. The site is just getting started so please be patient. I’ll be getting content up soon. Thanks.
For a look back while I work on getting TJ’s site up to date, you can follow this link. It’s his original site. Pretty much only part that works are the galleries. Please don’t use the subscribe functions. I’ll keep a permanent link over to the right under “Personal Links.”
On his second geocache hunt of the day, TJ found a large sand hill in the Bohemia Equestrian Park. After a climb to the top, he came down just a bit faster. Unfortunately he wasn’t right-side-up the whole time!
TJ went geocaching for the first time. Geocaching is a treasure hunt that uses a handheld GPS and hints and coordinates from various web sites. It’s a great way to find new places to explore. Today, we went to the David Weld Sanctuary in Nissequogue, where TJ found his first hidden treasure. It was inside an old hollow log up in the woods. He was really excited about the trip and even more excited when he discovered his first cache. You can check out some sample photos here. There’s sample code imprinted all over the photos for now but that will be gone when I update the site to fully functioning.
