Intrepid Ronan on his quest for water. Bravery comes easy when wielding a ladybug umbrella and sporting Thomas The Thank Engine galoshes.
Following a beautiful, warm first two weeks of November the rain and cold weather has finally arrived. Fortunately for Ronan he loves the water and, save the pre-hypothermia violent shivering, seems impervious to the cold.
Intentionally standing directly under a broken downspout next to our front door
Observing the storm drains and the fallen foliage blocking the grate
Finding streams, falling water, and puddles is Ronan's favorite part of rainy days. Just a romp around the neighborhood (or even our front yard) provides hours of entertainment. Ronan's fun is usually cut short by either Mom or I deciding enough is enough (blue lips, severely slurred speech, increased clumsiness to the point of dangerousness, etc) and requiring him to head back to a warmer, dryer space.
Not sure what this pose is about, but he did like the golden carpet of ginko leaves

Nieve is not much for 'the elements' so she stays inside where it is cozy, dry, and filled with fun but not too physically taxing toys.
When it's wet outside Nieve is happy to just jump indoors
