Jasmine and Payton's Great Summer Day!

It was such a hot day on American Girl Farms, and the girls were all trying to stay cool. Julie, Kit, Lanie, Felicity, Elizabeth, Kaya, and Samantha were all in the library (highly air conditioned), and the rest of them (except Jasmine and Payton) were playing in a toy store at the mall (highly air conditioned as well). Jasmine had slept in too late, and missed all the planning, so she was stuck in the heat, which was fine with her, she loved water balloons, and Payton was training a service dog, so Jasmine wanted to help her or at least watch her.
Jasmine was excited when Payton agreed to come over to the field and play with the hose and water balloons.
Payton walked through the fields over to Jasmine's family cabin on the farm. Payton was really excited to train her service dog, and to play with Jasmine, but she was upset that she hadn't been included in any of the library/mall/air conditioning planning. She didn't understand why she wasn't invited or included in the planning, but she just guessed it was because she was new and forgotten easily for now.
Jasmine sat on the steps to the front porch of her cabin waiting for Payton. Jasmine loved having new girls move to AG Farms, and Payton was really nice! Jasmine took a few sips out of her ice cold water bottle and put the cap back on. As she was doing this, she happened to look right up and see Payton running right over to her. Suddenly, Jasmine sprang up, and stood there, waiting for Payton to run the rest of the way.
"Oh my gosh! Payton, I'm so happy to see you!" Jasmine exclaimed happily as she exchanged hugs with Payton.
"Same to you!" Payton laughed.
"So I thought that we could put on bathing suits and go play with water balloons while we practice training Chocolate Chip?" Jasmine asked.
"Oh, sure! I'm wearing my bathing suit underneath my clothes. I didn't feel like putting all that lotion on right away," Payton said.
"Whoa, I really do like your bandana - where did you get it? I didn't see anything like it at the mall last week!" Jasmine asked, looking at the cute bandana that Payton wore.
"Well, it's from my hat and other headwear shop! Payton's Helping Hats! Would you like to borrow it?" Payton answered.
"Sure! Or actually, could I just buy one?" Jasmine asked.
"Of course! I'll deliver it to you tomorrow!" Payton assured her. "But for now, let's go relax under the shady tree, it'll still be hot, but maybe not quite as bad."
Payton went and sat down in the purple star-print chair. It was really comfortable, and it had a place to put her ice cold water bottle.
"I was hoping that we could possibly train or at least practice training Chocolate Chip?" Jasmine asked.
"Well, you can't exactly practice training a dog, but we could actually train him!" Payton laughed.
"YAY!" Jasmine cried.
"But, just a little warning, he is really frisky and kind of like a tornado. He runs all over the place like crazy, and he is super strong, so be careful if he jumps on you," Payton got up the courage to say. She really didn't want Jasmine to think that she couldn't train the dog - what would that say about her training abilities? Payton got up and unleashed the dog!
He jumped on top of Payton and Jasmine and started licking them all over. It was really fun.
"I told you he was wild, just wait for him to calm down, okay Jasmine?" Payton cried out to her friend who was laying on her back in the grass.
Jasmine looked at Chocolate Chip in his Service Dog Gear. He was so adorable, - but Jasmine wasn't jealous at all, in fact, she was happy for her friend!
"Here Chip-Chip, sit!" Jasmine said.
"Wait, Jasmine, you have to call him by his real name, or else he won't respond. Also, command him to do it, don't ask him to - if that makes any sense," Payton tried to explain.
"Here Chocolate, Chip, sit," Jasmine commanded firmly but not in a mean voice.
And suddenly, just like that, Chocolate Chip sat and wagged his tail - he would do anything for treats!
"Wonderful, Jasmine, but how about we have some fun with him now?" Payton exclaimed excitedly.
Payton grabbed the Dog Treats and ran around. Chocolate Chip was having a blast.
But suddenly - Chocolate Chip grabbed the treats out of her hand!!
Chocolate Chip ran off, carrying the treats. Quickly, Payton and Jasmine sprung into action.
"Get him over there, quick!" Jasmine cried.
"Don't let him into the poison ivy, I don't know if dogs can get near that or not!" Payton cried, glaring at the small patch of poison ivy nestled underneath a nearby bush.
Payton went one way, Jasmine went one way, and Chocolate Chip went the other. The whole American Girl Farms came out to about 35 acres (maybe more, maybe less), so it would be a real trip if they had to chase him around the whole farm!
Suddenly, Jasmine thought she had him. She was so close, and then instead of grabbing Chocolate Chip like she had planned, she grabbed a patch of grass and clover and fell face first into the ground. Luckily, it was soft and grassy, so it wasn't bad, but Payton was just worried about not finding Chocolate Chip.
Jasmine dove for Double C (Chocolate Chip's nickname), and caught him, just as he was running in other direction. Jasmine picked him up, and she also bent down again to pick up the treats. Payton came over and brushed the grass of Jasmine's knees.
The girls went and settled down in the chairs for a little while. Finally, they decided to lay down in the cool grass and relax with Double C (who was now very tired out).
Payton and Jasmine fell asleep for a while, and so did Double C. Finally, Double C just went over to the pets cabin so he could get out of the heat.
The girls finally fell asleep in the cool grass, relaxing and thinking about the best - and craziest day ever.
