With rain falling most of the day, we took advantage of a rare break to go outside and burn some energy, but have ended in a standoff.

Who moves first? - standoff
Who moves first?

Rain fell so hard Monday morning that we never got our early walk. We can’t remember the last time we missed one, and we might have been a little rambunctious in the house. When a break finally came, Hu-Dad suggested we go outside and burn some energy. Somehow, though, the Trouble Brothers have found themselves in an old-fashioned standoff.

P.S. – Don’t worry. We got our afternoon walk. Hu-Dad said that was happening no matter what.
