McCormick's Creek State Park

Hey there, y'all:

The folks took me and Molly on our first campin' trip last weekend. We packed up the car and headed down to McCormick's Creek State Park - 'bout an hour south o' Indy.

Hey! Where'd ya pack the cookies?!?!

Good thing mom reserved an electric site. Me and dad gotta have our fan!

Campin' and pugs.....mom's in heaven.

Keepin' an eye out fer coons...

Mom told dad if she should croak before him he needs to have a pug 'cause we're chick magnets!

Nothin' like burgers on an open fire...

Molly says "MOMMMM! Don't bogart the s'mores!!!"

Fightin' over who gets to lay with mom...

Molly thinkin' she won...

Me plannin' a sneak attack while Molly left to take a whiz...

SUCCESS! (Can ya see Molly peekin' out from behind mom?)

Well, she managed to squeeze back in but it's all good!

We hit the trail the next mornin'.

I wore my camo harness to keep the critters at bay. Can ya spot me??

Thought I'd test this slide...ya know....to make sure it's safe fer the kids.


Now I love to bark at horses on tv, but I gotta admit....them suckers are pretty intimidatin' in real life!

I was more comfortable at this distance!

Molly pooped out at the end. Yep...some people just ain't cut out fer life on the trail.

Yep. Mmhmm.

HA! I was just coming over to ask when you were going to post camping pictures! Looks like a good time. Too bad your cousin, Lola, couldn't make it down for a visit. Despite all appearances, she is a wilderness dog. We're still not sure WHAT Ringo is.

Hey Hank,
You're definitely more of an outdoorsman than me, dude. I'm more of a lounger, not much of a hiker.

Hank, thank you for your sweet comment about the crapper pic. As you can guess, Mommy thought that was funny. I did not! Anyway, please go look at my post today. I gave you an award!!!!

That was a great trip, Hank. Thanks for taking us along. Molly peeking out behind your mom was pretty darn cute. And yes, we are chick magnets. PlusOne has already figured that out.

Wow your pugs remind me of my sweet departed Romeo, he liked to go down slides, and barked at horses on TV also! We still have 3 pugs, love your blog!
