Today was the first buddy event! I had an awesome time with Shamus and my buddy partner Kate. The event took place at Veteran’s park. When I first showed up I didnt know what to expect and I was extremely nervous. When Shamus arrived he was a little bit shy. But as the day went on he started to open up alot more. He opened up the most when we got into the splash park. We played a game where Kate and I would pretend to be trapped in this cone of water then Shamus would come and save us. We also karate kicked the water and acted like ninjas. I don’t know who was having more fun, me or Shamus. After the splash park we gave Shamus his gift. Even though it was just a few matchbox cars his eyes lit up and a smile as big as Texas came over his face. After that we got snowcones, then sadly it was time to go. I can’t wait for our next buddy event!
