Just Singing In The Rain...

My girls LOVE water...any way you serve it up to them. The shower, a cup, the tub, the pool , the rain. But I think that they have the most fun in the rain. As soon as the rain starts they start asking if there is thunder/lightening. They know that they can't go play in the rain if there is.

So, today we were coming home from my never ending trip to the chiropractor and it was coming down pretty good. The very second we pulled into the driveway they started asking, "Is there any thunder or lightening?" After we determined that it was just rain, I let them take their shoes off and they roared out from under the carport into the wet playground that is our driveway. Lili said, "Dad, it's raining water!" yep...that's my little Einstein!!

They absolutely had a BLAST and were totally soaking wet within a few short minutes. It wasn't too long before Lili was cold and wanted to go in, so David took her on in the house. Aly, on the other hand, had NO intention of leaving her watery playground so quickly. I had been taking pictures, but that wasn't good enough. She wanted me to take video too. She was kind enough to inform me that I could post some of the pictures and the video on our blog. Thanks Al!! When I put her to bed tonight she made me promise to come right to my computer and do so!! Do you want a little HAM with that cheese???

Anyway, here are some pictures and video ...






Aly wrote this song just for the occasion. I LOVE how she counts off at the very beginning!!


Mom...it's raining and I am getting all wet!!

Oh, it's just raining water!!

I am having SUCH fun out here!!

Look Mom...I'm all wet!
Come on Lili...there's a BIG puddle over here

round and round and round we go...

Ta-Da!!
Here is my crane pose...in the rain no less!

Now THIS is a puddle!
Oh Thank you God for the rain!!! I LOVE LOVE LOVE RAIN!!

She sounds so excited! You're a good momma, letting them play in the rain. I'd be thinking, "yuck... mud."

Oh, the lessons the little children teach.

It looks like they had a great time. I wonder if that is the same downpour that drenched us the other day?

I love the rain too...and ESPECIALLY when it's water. :o) Too funny, your little rocket scientist.
