And of course, since I was always in the mood for a good nap, I did lots of yawning
I did some smiling for the camera
I did some visiting with my family
I did lots of snuggling with T and the rest of the family
I hung out with M on the beach
I did awesome jumping and catching (notice where my feet began in the sand and how high I jumped)
I saw someone peeking at me on the Fourth of July from their front door in Gleneden Beach, Oregon (a very small coastal town that really gets into celebrating the holiday)
I really got into anticipating the next throw of my Flippy Flopper
When I got wet (which I didn't much care for) I wriggled around on the sandy beach (my version of drying myself off)
I found myself a buddy to play with on my last full day of vacation (and his name was ... Buddy!)
Buddy is a six-year-old half golden lab and half chow. He was great fun to romp with. We had this private beach (behind the fancier golf course) all to ourselves (just our family and Buddy's family).
We gave Buddy's family one of Bandit's ... ahem ... business cards. Maybe they'll stop by the blog and check out the pictures of Bandit with his buddy (their Buddy).
Mama brought a special freezer bag with a big bone from the Asian grocery store and it was a 4th of July surprise for me. Yum, what a nice surprise!
I did some ferocious doggy digging
I got sand in my face and on my tongue (I didn't mind the occasional crunchiness in my mouth).
I found lots of sticks to drag around and play with
I visited Pacific City (a tiny little coastal town). It was super hot so we didn't stay too long. We had to stop at a grocery store to get me some drinking water.
My favorite thing of all was just being with my family
