Roughing it.

OMG YOU GUYS - I ALMOST DIED! Well, not really almost died, but they tried to drown me in the St. Croix River - well, I wouldn't have drowned because my dad was holding me and the other time I was wearing a life jacket, but still.
I went camping this weekend in a little Northernish town called Taylor's Falls and then today we went canoeing and I am totally a sailor now and I got to sit around the campfire and eat graham crackers and hot dogs and I even got a little beer that spilled. And then I got to sleep in a tent with my mom and dad but I think we should have brought the big bed because that would have been a lot better. Oh, and I also got to eat some baked beans and we all enjoyed the consequences on the ride home.
So they threw me in the river - well, not really threw me, but you know what I mean and then after being wet like all day and being the most tiredest ever, I got a bath when I got home, WTF?
And the pictures were taken with the crappy camera because my mom didn't want to risk bringing the good camera.

This is a picture of me ruling the campsite.

And this is a picture of a field that we sat in for some reason.

And this is what we watched in the field.

And this is a picture of what I did during the horizon watching.

And this is a picture of me eating breakfast.

And then my dad did this.

And this is a picture of me braving the river.

And this is around the time they tried to kill me.

Sure your weekend was a great adventure!
With all those things to see and to do!!
You look very handsome with your jacket!!
I don't think they tried to drown you, they wanted you to swim. It was your first experience swimming?? Sure was great!
Have a good night

Sounds like you had an awesome adventure and I'm glad you really didn't drown! I, for one, would have missed you horribly!

Love ya lots,

My mom laughed at the picture of your dad holding you up by your life jacket. I didn't think it was to funny though. I can't beleive they tried to off you by putting you in the river. Great job getting back at them on the ride home though.

Huskee and Hershey said...

Oh Ike, I am so glad you are alright! Geez.. what were your hoomans thinking? (I really like the sleeping pic of you.. your little tongue was sticking out.. so cute!!)

wally said...

Oh my dog! How mean of them. Especially after I'm sure you kept away the bears and the lions. At least you got your revenge on the ride home!


Martha said...

OMG! I can't believe the horror. Come to Ohio and my Mom promises to never make you go near a lake. *shudder* Love, Martha

Suki & Joey said...

Hmm...I'm not so sure about that camping stuff. I mean, it looks like you had fun, but why sleep in a bag when you can just go to a hotel and sleep in a bed?

My Mom says we're going to do that camping stuff once we're living in Oregon. Maybe I'll stay with Grandpa....hehehe!

Considering all the trauma, you look mightly debonair ruling over the campsite. I hope you farted exta lots to get back at them for trying to kill you.

Hey Ike....Camping looks wonderful. Looks like you were living the dogs life out there in the wilderness. We are glad that you came home safe and sound.

Greg said...

Ike, I'm jealous... If/when we get to MN or you get to Washington we'll have to do it again--either canoe camping in MN or kayak camping in WA...

Here are some dogs trying (very hard) to be almost as cool as you.

Balboa said...

I love that little doggie tent, I wish my mom would get me one of those.

I hope your farts on the car ride home were NASTY! They'd deserve it. I'm glad you were wearing a life jacket, but your dad looks just a little *too* happy about the handle on the back of it. I'd find him a hobby if I were you.

At least you're home and safe. I think camping can be an adventure, if it doesn't involve potential drowning!!

Did you get any other revenge on your parents after you got home? (I wouldn't be surprised).

Your goober buddy,
