Rainy days

This long stretch of rain is a wee bit tiresome for our little family.

I know I have made the comparison between my beloved children and golden retrievers before, and I am going to remind you of that comparison now.

These lovely boys ideally need at least 1-2 hours of outdoor play every day in order to maintain their sanity.

As you can imagine, they're getting a little bit, pent up.

Allow me to demonstrate.

Sunshiny days spent running around outside = not only happy children


But also = unpaid labor!

Hey Bud, you missed a spot.

Rainy days, on the other hand = restless, irritable children or

Soggy children.

"Hey Bud, you want to put your hood on?"

On the upside, they do smell significantly less yucky than wet dogs.

At least most of the time.

Happy Thursday!


  1. i am with you about the weather..and it is much tougher on the kids sunshine and playing in the back yard..hopefully it will end soon..the pics look great going to show great granddad how the namesake takes care of the lawn maybe he can pick up some pointers from the "wee ones" form he he..

  2. I wish we 'had' some rain. My grass is dying a slow death and we have to water the garden daily. I know I shouldn't complain, especially with all the people who have lost their homes to flooding,but it would be so nice if we could just spread it out you know?

  3. You have done a good job of characterizing my pup (golden) after what is now 4 days of rain. And yes, wet dogs.. bleh! Hoping for some sunshine so we can get out and play!
