Sunny day at the park

We are still in our spring weather and it's nice. Not freezing but not warm. This is my kind of weather. I asked my boys if they wanted to go but only Isaac decided to join me today. We had a good time tossing stones in the water and playing with the dogs. It was a good water day for the dogs who were all chasing tennis balls or just chasing each other in and out of the pond.
I love that I always get to meet new someone new. Isaac was learning to play with a little girl who was at the park but his attention span was too short to stay involved with the game. He was much more interested in getting to the water.
I also found out that there is a Facebook group just for this park. As soon as I got home, I looked it up. I'll put a link to it soon but if you want to find it, just look up "friends of Great Hill Park". So far, there are only 20 people involved but I'm sure more will join. I'm going to recommend it to everyone. I hope to keep more people connected.

Easter Sunday at the church of dog.

I was running a bit late on Sunday to get to the park and I figured it would be quiet. Boy was I wrong. The church around the corner from the park uses the dog park parking lot when the other lots get full so there was a lot of people going to church and then the regulars at the park were also out in large numbers.
I brought a longer lens and a video camera to try to shoot both still and video images and it worked out okay. I love this photo of Romeo. I've gotten some nice photos of him lately but this one turned out great. That is Tika in the background. We were all hanging out on the edge of the play area. I wanted to be out of the way because Toby has been a little aggressive lately so by staying on the edge helped for him. Next week I'm going to try to start scheduling people to interview for some fun short videos. I've been collecting photos long enough through this blog that it's time to start get my butt in gear to get a book together. I'm super excited about the possibility of doing an e-book as a multi-media project and this summer, I'm going to really get something started.
Feel free to keep me on track and give me a hard time. I'm going to need to interview lots of people so let me know if you're interested.
