Foster Friday: Amelia goes to the lake!

Hi!  It's me!  Amelia!
On Wednesday, the foster parents played something called hookie.  The came home early from work and packed up some things and the Corbin went bonkers!  I didn't know what was going on, but if Corbin was super excited, well, then I guess I could be excited too!  We jumped in the car and headed for a car ride.  When we arrived at our destination, the foster lady put these silly jackets on us -Can you believe I had to match the Corbin?!
Okay, we match.  What now?
When we started walking, I saw this HUGE pool!  I love pools.  We have one at our adoption events.  It just comes up to my toes, but I lay in it and roll around it it and it feels so nice.  So, seeing this HUGE pool was so awesome and I was very excited!  Corbin says it's not a big pool, it's a lake.  And, that it's way cooler than a silly pool.  So, I guess it's a lake, but we'll see about it being cooler than my pool!
Why are we floating on the big pool lake?
Instead of dipping our toes in the lake, we floated on top of it.  Corbin said it was his boat, so I guess that's what it was.  Anyway, we went really, really fast and finally came to a floating stop.  Foster dad jumped in the lake and Corbin followed.  So, I gave it my best effort and off the boat I went!
I can't just stand here?
Well, wouldn't you know... I couldn't touch!!!!  There was nothing under the water but MORE water!  So, I followed the Corbin and foster dad and we swam and swam and swam until we could touch.
Thanks for the heads up, meanie!
Once we got to lesser water, it was just so awesome!!!  I was able to run in the water and sniff the water and sniff the land outside of the water and I just ran and ran and sniffed and sniffed and oh my, it was just grand.
Here a sniff, there a sniff, everywhere a sniff sniff!
While I was busy exploring every inch of the shoreline, Corbin and foster dad played ball.  Back and forth, back and forth.
"Okay, Dad... now, throw it again"
And, foster dad would throw it and he'd go pouncing around like a goon!
I, on the other hand... I was on a mission.  A mission to know each and ever
dog that ever stepped paw in this here lake!
Goon jumping...
'Mielsya exploring... (foster lady calls me Mielsya: Meeeeels-ya)
Goon jumping...
'Mielsya exploring.
It was a lot of fun!  Then foster lady decided we needed to go back to the boat for a bit of a rest... so a swimmin' we went again!  Once we were back to the boat, I could really take in all the sites!  And, I got to take my silly jacket off.
There was lots of stuffs to watch!
Ducks and people and water!
It was a lot of fun!
Corbin enjoyed himself, too!
Can we go back in the water, please?
We got suited back up.
And, waited until the time was right to...
We did a little more swimming.
Then back to the boat for a snooze.
It was a really fun day!  I love the boat!!!
