The Gates To Chaos

The gates were installed. The fence is complete. The games have begun. Let’s call it the gates to chaos.

As you might have guessed from today’s photo, the gates were installed on our fence. We might be a wee bit excited by this development. The Trouble Brothers demonstrate some of the chaos unleashed (yes, Hu-Dad worked hard to get that phrase into the story) as Typhoon pursues Roscoe around and around and around the yard.

We don’t know why Hu-Dad was smiling though. When we got inside, we were too tired to do our nightly wrestling matches in his study. We don’t know how he got any work done over our snoring.

    So happy the boys can run free again and tire themselves out.

    Hu-Dad-You ARE sneaky!!! Chaos unleashed-lol. I was thinking while reading the story-“I bet those Sibes will be super tired” and there it was! I hope they all slept very well? I’m so glad the fence is complete!
