Hellooooo Fall!

This week has been absolutely beautiful! It's fun once the weather is cool enough to actually enjoy going outside. =) Last week we had tons of rain. I was hating that we don't take pleasure in the rain like we should! I'm talking about running outside right away and jumping in the puddles and splashing in the gutters and catching raindrops on our tongues. Who cares about messing up hair or clothes getting wet?! So, I made a goal last Tuesday to always play in the rain (as long as there is no lightning!). The next day it started pouring right as the girls were getting off the bus so I thought - ok! here we go! They insisted on wearing swimsuits and by the time they got back outside the rain had slowed to a drizzle. BUMMER. They still enjoyed floating things down the street in the gutter and splashing around. It made me happy! Then we had potato soup and rolls for dinner. Pure bliss. =)

I feel like I haven't done updates on my kids in a very long time. They say so many sweet things - I hate that I'm not documenting them like I used to. SO, gear yourself up for some quality posts on my sweet angel puddin' pie kiddos!

That is awesome! I briefly thought maybe we should embrace the rain like that here. But I am postive that if we ran around in swim suits in the rain people would think we were psychotic LOL! But that is what we did back in the day at good 'ol AZ.
