Staying Out In The Rain...

A few days ago, I sent my kiddos out to break up some branches in the back yard. The goal was to get this job finished before the giant black cloud that was heading our way burst open and spoiled all the fun. cleaning up branches isn't really F U N. I thought I'd try and make it sound better than, "Git that mess a sticks picked up be-fur yer pa gets home!"

About 5 minutes into the job, sure enough, came a downpour that could drown a duck. Being the good mother I am, I thought that they should all come in before they catch their death or more like, were seen by the neighbors slaving away in the rain.

I gave a good holler....No answer!

I hollered again...Nuttin'

This is what they were up to!

Now I know for certain the neighbors think the "new folk" are crazy now.
There they were...splashin' around like they didn't have a care in the world. It really did my heart good to see them having so much fun.


I was spotted!
Hello, son!

Stating the obvious, I say, "Do you know it's raining?"

"Uh HUH!" Maddie, the practical thinker asks, "Will this give us pneumonia?"

"No more than a sprinkler will!"

She giggles and laughs, "Good!"

Who am I to spoil all the fun?

I hope it's raining JOY where you are!

God Bless Your Day!

Love this!!! Those are good kids. I can see it all the way from here.

And speaking of here - where on earth are you? And when were you here? And should I have already known this? Have we already talked about this? (Please say no.) I'm speechless over our shared, eternal affection for Mazatlan!
