Raindrops

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!!!

Playing in the rain is so much fun!! Morgan hasn't shown a lot of interest in so, I'm hoping as she gets bigger we can go out and stomp in puddles!!

So fun! We did this not long ago, and now my daughter thinks we should go out every time it rains! :)

How cute are they? I just love your daughters' dress, too.
I just read your last several posts. I am trying to catch up on all my friends blogs. I must say, I would have freaked out about that snake, too! Ewww.... I am glad it wasn't a rattler after all.

'Pooples'... LOL Too cute! As is that little blue dress and white sandals.

I hope you managed to get the mud off Ian before Ian brought it in the house!
