The only time Charlie will sit or lie down at the top of the stairs is when someone is climbing them. Otherwise, he never sits or lies down in this spot. Whenever anyone climbs the stairs and he’s there waiting, they’ll always stop to give him a pet or a scratch. Which, of course, is the reason he selects this location at this particular time.

The sun did not shine
It was too wet to play
So we sat in the house
All that cold, cold wet day.
from The Cat in the Hat by Dr. Seuss

Charlie

I can recall another day just like this when a little boy was looking out the window, wishing the rain away, and longing to go outside.

It’s such a beautiful day, so of course Mom wants to take some pictures. The boys and Charlie change into their flannel and are ready to go.

The pictures came out good, but as you know, getting twin boys and their dog into position for a decent picture can be an extreme challenge…at times. Today, however, wasn’t too bad.

The summer days have been pretty hot–a lot hotter than normal, it seems–so we’re spending a lot more time in the pool. Alex certainly has the right idea…

Well, it looks like the annual sickness has run its course and everyone is feeling better. Though the air is still a little cool, we decided to take the boat out for some fresh air! Charlie was thrilled!

Boat Day

The water was a little choppy, so we had to take it slower than usual (to the boys’ disappointment), but hey, a bad day boating is still better than a good day at work, amiright?

It’s a great day for baseball! Charlie came to the game today and hung-out with Dad to watch the game…

Boating season has officially started! Today, the boys and I took Charlie out on the water for a few hours…

It seems like it’s been forever since we’ve felt the wind and spray in our face…especially Alex!

It was GREAT just being outside! It got a little cloudy and we got a few sprinkles, but that didn’t put a damper on our fun!

On the way back to the marina, Adam took the wheel for a bit…
