We Hang Out in the Driveway

I love that moment when I turn into my driveway and get a little burst of happiness at being home, mostly because I know that I'm about to get to change into pajamas. 

But sometimes, I turn in and laugh...because my husband likes to hang out in the driveway. He plays in the garage and tinkers around with his truck and lawn mowers. And sometimes...sometimes he brings the dogs outside and ties them onto something so that they can hang out, too. 


Diesel with the look of shame at being tied up. 



Diesel on the left pouting. Cash on the right after getting brushed. Anyone need lab fur?


This happened twice this week. 

I love my husband...and I bet our neighbors do, too. ; )

Haha this is too cute! We also have yellow labs, so I'm very familiar with the lab fur that accumulates after a good brushing :)

My husband is the same way. He can ride around on his lawn mower for hours and our lawn isn't that big! I'm sure the neighbours are entertained by him. It keeps them busy though!

Haha ... your husband sounds like mine. I'm certain they could be besties, just like us. :)

lori said...

Julie said...

My parents driveway looks like that every Saturday and Sunday :)

Liz said...

Men love the garage!!!! Our drive way constantly looks like this, with one dog tied to something because she wanders and the other glued to Mike's side. DId Justin get a new truck?

Lab fur?! Yes please I have a pintrest project that I'm working on and we don't have enough between our two!!! Bahahaha kidding.

Seems like your husband and my dad have a lot in common. He is always outside, tinkering with something. ALWAYS. And half of the times, it's not even his own things.. people just take it upon themselves to bring over their four-wheeler, boat trailer, you name it.. and just ask him to work on it. And he DOES. Sweet man, he is, but it drives me crazy. Go sit down, watch a basketball game or something! lol But to no avail. He just loves being out in the driveway!

Tami said...

Love this!! We always hang out in the driveway too. Or at least we did when we had one! I long for the day that we live in our house with our own driveway again! :)

Benlovesting said...

Oh man, this so cute!

Courtney B said...

This is so my husband as well! Just another reason we were MEANT to be friends :)

Katie said...

Mine is the same way. More often than not, I come home to him playing in the garage with his power tools. Lol

Annabelle said...

We don't live in a neighborhood but I can say that my hubby is the same way! Always something sitting out being tinkered on! Gotta love our men!

C.Curley said...

So...in my head I just thought... "You brushed off his lab coat!" And it made me laugh. Yeah...it's been a slow day around here! haha!

Lauren said...

This is so cute!! Gotta love those hubbies!! :) Cute dogs!!

Sara Bell said...

Aw, too cute! My husband used to always be out in the garage in our old condo. Always! We were newlyweds there (I guess we kind of still are, but I mean NEWLY newlyweds) and I felt so grown-up and wife-y bringing him a glass of lemonade and sitting out there with a book while he worked on his dirt bike or one of our vehicles.
I have a feeling we'll be hanging out in the nursery soon instead. =]

This is the kind of post you will cherish...because it's real life. My hub is the tinkering kind, too. I love a handy man. Heh, heh. ;)

Sasha's furminated hair pile could compete with Cash's. When I'm done, it looks like it snowed in Miami. Lol.

Rach @ This Italian Family said...

Haha! Very nice! And I have to say, Diesel's look of shame is hilarious. Poor guy!

Allison said...

I love that he brought the dogs out to hang out...they are family too right? :)

Jamie said...

So cute! I love seeing he doggies relaxing outside too!

Laura Darling said...

I love this! Sometimes my dad works in our driveway and front yard and brings the dog out. He ties her leash to the sledgehammer because it's heavy and she can't really get very far when she's dragging it. It mortifies my mom haha. But it works!

Brooke said...

This reminds me of when I pull into my driveway at home - or I guess my parent's house now - and my dad will be out doing whatever in the garage! It makes me happy :)

KRISTIN said...

HA! I love it!

Michaela said...

So funny. Him and those dogs love to work in the yard!

Ashley said...

Nothing wrong with hanging out in the yard ;)

Janna Renee said...

Will does the SAME thing. Weiser loves being tied up out there with him, but it is quite funny when he wants to go after something and can't. Haha

Ashley said...

so lovey & cute. i love it :)

Holly said...

Heheheh I thought the mowers were ATVs at first, and was like "Huh? Why do they have farm bikes!?" :P

Here's hoping you move to somewhere with a huge lawn to mow! ;)
