About the blog title... Golden Boys and Me

As I was sitting outside today, I noticed the trees and how the leaves in my yard are about to turn green.  But, today...today they are that beautiful golden color. Doesn't everything seem so fresh, and well..possible in Spring?


Which reminded me of one of my favorite Frost poems...



This is the what I was referring when I came up with the name Golden Boys.  I want to document as much as I can about my boys while they are growing up because I know this time is fleeting.  

It is also a play on words that we had 1 Golden Retriever at the time I started blogging.  Now we have two.  Since Golden Retrievers are my favorite breed of dog, it seems like I really love gold.  Not gold jewelry though.  Jewelry is just not my thing :)

And that's the story of the name of this blog.
