Of course there is one component I can't control - aiiie, the weather. So when its pouring rain the show must go on! I wasn't too keen on heading out for our usual long walk at 8am but toddlers and dogs don't seem to be aware of the weather or care much about it. I was secretly hoping that it would be the kind of day where Jack just played his time away and didn't drag out his boots and start demanding I put them on. And maybe Lucy would just continue nap one of ten for the day and sleep through everything.
Unsurprisingly it didn't happen and so here we are out in the rain! Once we were out in it I was surprised how warm and not that horrible it all was!

That is of course until he hit the deck and started rolling around in the garden. As much as he enjoys playing outside he will often refuse to get up when he's fallen down because he hates getting his hands into weird feeling textures like grass, dirt or wet patio stones.
By the time we came inside he was a mess of dirt and soggy sweatpants! We enjoyed a snuggle under a warm blanket and watched Sesame Street. I don't know why but the rainy day seemed to tire him and Lucy more than usual because they were both unbelievably quiet and still during that hour! I had to check and make sure Jack was still awake at one point. And that I didn't fall asleep!
