Rain, Rain!

Sunday was a cool rainy day. We were so happy for the change in temperature. After church and naps the clouds parted and the sun came out. We decided we would go for a family walk. We figured we might get sprinkled on, but we wanted to go anyway. It was so glorious...bright green leaves and a cool breeze carrying the smell of rain. Then, when we were about a mile away from home, things turned wet. It started with a sprinkle, but quickly turned to a downpour. Jackson was pushing the double stroller with Nicholas and Essie and Thomas was riding his bike. As soon as it started raining, Thomas started riding really fast trying to get home and out of the rain. After a little while he jumped off his bike, looked at me and said, "I give up...I'm SOAKED." It was so funny the way he said it. I still laugh thinking about it. Needless to say, after a mile of walking home in pouring rain we were all soaked. It was so fun, though. Everyone was happy, even Estella. When we got home we decided to keep playing in the rain since we were wet already. Here are a few pictures from that.



The umbrellas quikly went from being protection from the rain to being water toys.

CUTE PICS!!! my fav is the top one of Thomas stnading in the down pour with the umbrells over his head. That looks like it should be on a calender or something.

I miss big rain showers like that-I don't think it has rained in California since we moved here! It looks like you guys had a great time in the rain-you guys are such a cute family!

I wish I lived close to you so you could teach me a few things about my camera. I think we have the same one...Canon Rebel xT? I need to stray off of Automatic and explore with Manual. Any basic steps that would help me? Have I asked you this before?
