Beavers Thwarted by Rain

Sean Kinney

After some introductions, the new foursome had some fun playing at the park.

But after learning that they have been thwarted by all that heavy rain, and feeling pretty glum, their new friend took them home and offered a place to stay until they figured out their next game plan....
