Baby and Leissl’s birthdays are one day apart. Today we three went to the birthday park for a cool Sunday walk around.
First we went to the big fruit field.
Well, this is no fun.
Time for a break on the bench for a picture with Dobermom and Baby, who will be eleven tomorrow.
Leissl is seven today.
Leissl sang to herself.
Then she sang to Baby.
When she finished singing and stood up, well, we found that nature has a purpose for everything – even birthday girls sitting down for a sing. Leissl walked around the rest of the Birthday park and deposited the seeds she had collected while singing her birthday tune.
We went to the black forest (schwarzwald) and Leissl’s ears have never looked like this before. I don’t know what she was listening to. But Baby’s got a little odd-shaped too. So we took a quick picture, and scrammed in case there were lions, tigers and bears hiding out!
We went to Iguana Lake next. Here, Baby showed her curly tongue talent as she talked to the Iguana nearby.
Here is the Iguana. Baby chased it into the lake.
Then she laid by the shore to be sure it didn’t come back. That’s Baby.
While Leissl and Baby took a moment…
…a hunk on a bicycle stopped to say he was a “Dobermann man” and wanted to know where he could get a Doberboy pup. I said, “R-E-S-C-U-E-Z … that’s how Dobies come to thee.” I sang. If Leissl can…so can I!
Then we were asked to leave. (OK, I was asked to leave.) We got a drink from our Thermos of water and jumped in.
Then we hit the road to go home.
Till next year, Birthday Park!
