What's Up With This Weather?!

I was so excited about the last three days of sunshine! I just happened to be at work all three days. So, I couldn't wait to wake up this morning. I had a day filled with so many activities for my little guy. He has been sick this week (again!) and the only thing that has made him happy is playing outdoors. You can imagine my dismay when I opened the blinds this morning to find it raining (again!). I still decided to have a great time anyway. Ethan and I played soccer upstairs until I kicked the stuffed soccer ball and knocked down the curtain rod, candle sconces, and several books. Then we played with play dough and Ethan's eyes got really big when I made two balls into ONE! Ahhh, where did the other go? We then chased bubbles. After Ethan decided he didn't want to take a nap I looked outside and the sun was shining! So, we got our puddle jumpers on and walked down to see the horse (which I think recognizes us now) and to the market a few blocks away. I got Ethan some cheese crackers and we sat on the bench outside the store to eat our snack. Then... it began to hail so hard! Ethan signed "rain" which brought me to laugh and say, "Now what do we do?" We sat for about ten minutes and it was getting colder. I was worried about Ethan but he didn't care at all. We walked back in the rain and when I could I would carry Ethan and run a little until the 30 pound load was too heavy. Ethan didn't mind a bit. He could of jumped in puddles, picked up bark, and look at the cars driving by all day long.

Oh, it sounds like the rain made it even funner. It's just sometimes as adults we forget how fun the rain can be. Sounds like you guys had a lot of fun!!

Those are the best moments...the cheese & cracker, bubble blowing moments! Although, knowing me & Ben....it would involve Peanut M&M's.....and no hail, since we live in So Cal!
