BBQ & Road Trip!

Friday evening, it was so pretty outside that Papa decided he would try his new gas BBQ grill. (It’s not really “new” but Manuel just gave it to us recently, so it’s new for us…)

He’d gone to the store on the way home from work and gotten some pork steaks to cook. Grammy cut up potatoes, carrots, and onions and wrapped them, with a bit of bacon and butter, in some heavy duty aluminum foil. She also cored an apple, put in cinnamon, a bit of sugar and a bit of butter, and wrapped that in foil, too, so that Papa could grill them.

They shared some with us, and BOY, WAS IT GOOD!!!

Poor Sadie had to stay in the yard because Grandma OC was out with us. Actually, we pups could only be out, a few at a time on leashes, because our people didn’t want us out of their sight since the neighbor’s dogs were loose over at their place, and they didn’t want us ganging up and heading over there.

We all sat outside for a while after and talked.

Mama Dott listens, so she was loose, but she kept her eyes open for rabbits out in the front pasture. She had to stay close, so she had to crouch to see under the car.

Afterwards, we all went in and snoozed with full tummies while our people watched a movie on the TV.

On Saturday, Papa decided to take us (BG, Gimli, Mercy & Pip) on a road trip. We went to the Big Town where the Kern River runs through some of the parks, and we got to go and play in it!

We had lots of fun! There were some really pretty flowers in the Water Lily pads.

We got to see some people in what Grammy called “inner tubes” floating down the river, but Grammy was taking pictures of us watching them and didn’t get pictures of them.

Then we went to a store to buy a BBQ utensil set since it was on sale at 60% off the regular price. Papa was really happy with it, and plans to BBQ quite often now… Yippeeeeeeeee!!!!

Look for Pippin's Peek at the Past #4 tomorrow...
