Dog Wood Park

This weekend we took a trip to Dog Wood park in Jacksonville.  It is a bit far from the house, but this 25 acre fenced dog park complete with lakes, trails, tunnels and agility equipment is definitely worth the drive!

Here are some pictures from our time at the park.

Long time no post

Sorry for not posting much recently, but life has been pretty uneventful lately.  The weather has been chilly and it has snowed the last two weekends.  So what isn’t covered in snow is a muddy mess from the snow melting.

Despite the bad weather, the boys and I were ready to get outside and have some fun.  So, yesterday we made a point to go to the dog park.  We went very early in the morning while the ground was still frozen to help avoid a lot of the mud.  There were about five other dogs there who’s owners all had the same idea about coming early while things were still frozen, so the boys had plenty of playmates.

When things warmed up and the park started turning to mud we left and went to the children’s playground area to play on the jungle gym.  The boys love to climb on the jungle gym and go down the sliding boards.  This jungle gym was very large and had 6 different slides.  I was very proud of them because they even went down the tunnel slides that are curved.  They usually hesitate and try to avoid the enclosed slides but yesterday they were up for anything!

Dog Park

Yesterday was a beautiful, sunny day and the boys and I decided to take advantage of the fantastic weather and spend some time at the dog park.

We are lucky enough to have two dog parks very close to our house. The first park is narrow and long and has a grass surface (well, now the park is mainly dirt). This park is only about two minutes from home. The second dog park is about ten minutes away and is a bit larger than the first. Instead of being grass its surface is made up of really tiny pebbles.

We decided to head to the dog park that is a bit farther away because the boys always seem to enjoy that park more. I’m really not sure why, you would think they would like running on the grass over running on the stones. But for some reason that is not the case!

Since it was such a beautiful day the park was very crowded. When we arrived there were about 25-30 dogs already there. It is always funny when we first go into the park. When new dogs arrive many of the dogs come up to the gate to form a “welcoming committee” for the new arrivals. So on our way into the park there was a crowd of dogs by the gate. But the boys just made their way into the pack and then Benjamin darts out of the crowd and is on his way running around the park with all of the dogs following him. I think his size really works to his advantage when in crowds. I’m pretty sure he just runs underneath all the other dogs and makes his way out.

The boys were very playful and were really working off some of that extra holiday energy. Unfortunately, I don’t have pictures. I forgot to bring my camera! Bad mommy!
