Monsoon season usually brings us lots of humidity with thunderstorms in the late afternoon. The clouds quickly roll in, soon followed by a duststorm, lightning, thunder and rain. This year has been different. We've had gentle rainfall in the daytime. If it weren't for the heat, I would have thought it was winter.
Normally, we'd be cowering inside from all the lightning. Lucky us, there's none to be had most days, so we get to go outside and get WET!
Ian reports, "Mommy, it's raining outside," and runs to the back door.
Laurel only hears the word outside, and runs to get her shoes thinking we're heading out the door. What's a mom to do? Of course we head outside.
Silly Laurel tries to catch the raindrops in her mouth.
There's a small waterfall coming from the drain spout above. Cups are perfect to capture the precious rain. Ian choses to fill his dump trucks with the rainwater. Laurel decides it's more fun to pour it on herself.
"Mommy, mommy, pooples. Pooples, mommy!"
Ian doesn't bother with the puddles, he'd rather play in the MUD!!!
