and then the rain came!

"Childhood is that wonderful time of life when all you need to do to lose weight is to take a bath"

A bath was certainly needed after this little event.... The photo quality is poor as the daylight was waning and the battery in my camera gave out after this one shot.

After a very hot day the thunderclouds rolled in and along with the electrical storm came the torrential downpour. The children wasted no time, but hurried outside to play in the mud. Even the Wii could not compete with the mudpuddles around the side of the house.

"the world is mud-luscious and puddle-wonderful" e.e. cummings


  1. And wasn't it a wonderful storm and rain shower. Mud and rain, sounds like a good combination.

  2. Yes I heard you were desperately in need for some cool weather and rain. I remember that wonderful feeling after weeks of droughts. Wish I could send you some barrels from here ;-)


Please leave a message after the beep.....
