Yesterday I had a mommy and me time walk. Bailie and Madison have had some mommy and me outings recently, but I haven’t, so it was my turn. I was super excited as I love to go places, especially with my mom. I’m thankful for any one on one time I can get.
The weather was gorgeous, and Mom wanted to take me some place I had never been. Reluctantly, she decided we should go to Whitetail Woods. My sisters told me they go there about once a year, and it is always a disaster. Mom is a positive thinker, so she figures it will be better next time, and she gives it another chance.
Unfortunately, this year was the worst visit yet! A year ago Bailie and Madison went for a walk there and it was in a shambles. This year only about 1/3 of the park was even open. To top it off, the closed part it Mom’s favorite part. Everything was closed, and work crews had machinery and were working all over the place.
I was still excited for a mommy and me time walk no matter where we went. The trails that were open were all in the sun, and it was really hot out.
The trails were mowed, but I wanted to go off into the deeper grass on the sides. Mom said I shouldn’t because of ticks. I let Mom know loud and clear how I feel about her rules.
We did end up getting about five minutes in the shade of the woods. Boy did that feel good. The original plan was for an hour walk, but because the trails were all closed, and it was so hot, we only got in a half hour.
If you are like us, you are sick and tired of the whole pandemic thing, but there is no way to get away from it. It is on the TV, radio, internet, even Facebook put a tab on our page and they will not remove it despite the fact that we don’t want it on there. Going out in nature should be a perfect way to escape it all, but no! These stupid signs are all over the place. It really is a shame they can’t just let people be, I mean everyone knows way more than they want to about this virus. Oh well, I still enjoyed the walk with my mom.
Before we were back at the parking lot, we found this grassy area. I worked on sitting for a photo once again, but it is tough when it is so warm out! We don’t recommend Whitetail Woods at all, and Mom says she won’t be back, but chances are curiosity will win her over and she will take us back again some day. Our advice – check to make sure the park is open and in good shape before going.
