We went to the park to let Livy ride her bike. The olde blonde took the video camera and was ready to show you what fun we were having - she got home and tried to upload all of her wonderful work......BOL.........it was nothing but a big blurry mess!!!!BOL - she got NOTHING! Absolutely NOTHING! on film! So now you're stuck with me just describing our afternoon at the park.
We got to the park....Daddy gets the bike out of the back end of the jeep....mom discovers that noone brought a leash for me! Lots of cussing by daddy....Mom throws me back into the jeep and sends daddy and me back home for a leash! RATS!
Livy and mom start along the path with Livy riding and mom shooting video - HA! Dad and I return to the park and way on the other side we see Livy standing next to her bike waving like crazy and we see mom inspecting the front tire....oh no, what is wrong? Livy comes running toward us - waving and screaming - I'm excited pulling at the leash trying to get to her - in the distance mom is filming with the video cam!!!! [picture me trying to get to Livy] - Livy and I meet - I jump - I'm excited - mom is filming/zooming/getting it all!!!! Dad, Livy and I start walking toward mom and her camera and the bike just standing there. A woman with two yappy little dogs meet us at the intersection - I do my friendly hello - The yappy dogs go nuts - the woman tells her dogs "No Speak" - don't go near that little doggie - I want to play - but she won't let me.....daddy pulls me away since the woman is telling daddy that he is rude for not controlling his dog. Can you believe this! Mommy is filming this [yeah right] - Daddy is ready to blow - I'm totally under control - it is her crazy dogs who won't shut up and are pulling the old hag along!!!!!!!!
We go towards mommy who tells daddy that the bike is stuck! How do you get a bike stuck? We don't know but somehow little miss Livy has gotten her breaks stuck and the front tire won't move. Daddy tries to fix the bike - while he does a lot of cussing and complaining about the woman with the 2 dogs. Mom continues to film all o this!!!!! Finally the bike gets fixed - Livy starts to ride some more - mom continues to film all of this.....uh huh!
Livy goes to her favorite spot on the bridge. Livy rides and rides and rides. Livy falls! Mom and Dad tell her about all their bike falls when they were kids.......Livy doesn't care - she's scratched her palm and it is a major disaster! Mom is getting all of this on tape! Yeah Right!
Oh - I fotgot - I'm off leash for a lot of this! - Dad sees the woman with the yappy dogs - Mom insists I get back on leash......and then - she starts walking me toward the woman with the yappy dogs!!!! GO MOM!!!! Let's confront them! The video camera is now at mom's side - it's still going - although she has no idea of this - but it is filming blurry stuff - Mom tightens up on my leash and moves off the path but still headed in the direction of the lady with the yappy dogs. The yappy dogs are going crazy - pulling, tugging, barking. The woman is yelling "No Talk, No Talk" Mom is laughing silently - we keep walking - my leash is tight - and then mom loosens the leash - I run forward a little bit - and the 2 dogs go INSANE!!!!!!!!! The woman goes nuts screaming at her dogs "No Talk, No Talk" - Mom says "Sit Checkers" - I sit - and mom says "GOOD BOY!" - the yappy little things are going bonkers! Mom picks me up and says "My goodness - can you believe how ill mannered some doggies can be!" - She walks past the little nutty dogs then drops me to the ground and we go on our merry way. The dogs are still barking - the woman is still yelling at them - and we are laughing like crazy!!!!!
Livy is now bored with the bike riding - so daddy decides he will ride it - So there he goes, a 170 pound grown man on a 20" bicycle - He's trying to pop wheelies in the grass......the bike BREAKS!!!!!!! Uh huh! The bike breaks - well, not really the bike but the chain - mom laughs - Livy starts lecturing him about how the bike is not made for grownups - Mom is, of course, filming all of this!
Now we walk over to the Friendship Bell - Livy rings the bell incessantly - driving us all crazy. Mom then makes her tell the story of the friendship bell and how it is related to the Atomic Bomb. Livy tells the story just as if she were a docent for the Secret City Museum - mom gets it all on tape so that she can share it with you!
We're done - we go back to the jeep - we go get ice cream - we come home -
Mom uploads her video - it is a total blurry mess!!!! Mom cusses! Daddy laughs!
I chill out on the couch. Those little yappy dogs wore me out!
