I swear whenever it rains my kids act like they have never seen rain before, and let's face it they haven't seen a lot. But seriously whenever it rains they run out of the house for a great time in the cold rain, usually with no shoes on. I have to explain to them that when it rains that usually means it is cold outside. Last week it rained a lot here, which I happen to love being from the great Northwest. So I wrestled the kids into their rain coats and boots and we went out to play. There is something about stomping in puddles that brings a smile to a child's face. I love the rain. I love the smell and I kind of like the gray skies. Makes me want to snuggle up with a blanket and a good book. I did get a few shots before I decided to get out of being soaked and warm up inside.
