Early Morning Holliday Park!

This morning I had an eye doctor appointment early, and took the scenic drive home past Holliday Park. Of course it was tempting, so when I got home we got all packed up and Brian and I took the girls there.

It was the perfect temperature, and the trails there are just gorgeous. Some parts have wooden paths like this, but most are dirt paths. The muddy parts had boards down over them for you to walk on. Dixie just ran on through the mud, but Sophie...

She can't stand to get her feet wet. Here we are walking across a log:

Although Dixie did walk on the log, she jumped off after the video and walked in the water! After the hiking down to the water, we gave the girls a drink in their portable water bowl.

I thought they looked like a cute little yin-yang here!

The park is more than just trails, it's also an art center and a playground. The art center part has this cool sculpture, it's a huge marble ball that moves around because water is under it. Sophie wouldn't get near it, but Bugg LOVED the watery side!

What little cuties!

There are also slides in the playground area. We decided to take the girls for a ride down the curvy one. Here's Dixie's go. You can hear a mom say "that dog's gunna go down the slide!"

Sophie's turn was next... notice how she tries to stop me from entering the slide by putting out her paws... and as she goes down, watch her little leggies wriggling!!!

What a great morning with our favorite girls!

I would have made a stain if someone tried to put me on a slide, but I bet Tanner would LOVE it! That looks like a very cool park!

That looks like a fun trip!! I have never been on a slide, but I went on a swing with Mom once...
Glad you had a nice time!
Love Clover xo

My mom never takes me on slides! You and Bugg sure are lucky!

rugged pugs! We took the pugs to a park on Sunday to play disc golf - they were quite rugged themselves. They even jumped into the creek that wraps around the park.

Hmmm, I am not sure if I would lik that or not (the slide). The rest of the walk looked like fun, though.
