Much like a temperamental child, sometimes you wish the weather would behave. Especially when you have out of town guests, it would nice to set the record straight. Oftentimes, Seattle gets a bad wrap for being the rainiest place on the planet, but days like last weekend don't do much to help. It is at times like those, we have to remember the rain makes everything green....... and we REALLY like all the green. Our out of towners wanted to Ride the Ducks and since it had been years since we had done so, it seemed like a great idea. Once onboard our duck, we knew we were in for a treat.
Have you ever meet someone whose job might seem mundane, but who turns it into something extraordinary? Well, that was our driver. He had more confidence, bad jokes and tacky hats than any one person should ever possess. Oh and his laugh, it was simply beyond ridiculous and infectious. You might be able to catch a glimpse of the weather from these pictures, but oh how it poured and poured.

A little wet, a little cold, but had a great time.
