Sunshine after Rain

Sunday night saw the sky filled with random rain showers and a rainbow or two, prior to sunset. Shortly after the sun went down, the heavy rains came, along with lightening, thunder and heavy winds. The lightening and thunder disappeared as the sun rose once again. Even though a new day had dawned we didn’t see the sun until after 3:00. The boys begged to go outside despite the dreariness yesterday morning. We headed out just in time to watch a very dark cloud system roll in, as we entered the house for nap time, the rains came once again. But that was all short lived, you see, when the boys woke up from their naps, the sun was shining happily. The swollen crick still roared at the back our property and puddles lined our neighbors yard. (for those of you who are unaware, we live on a flood plain, so it is not uncommon to see the crick swollen or puddles covering a yard). We waited outside with rubber boots longing for little feet to enter, for daddy to come home. Once he was home and we had permission to let our boys play in the puddles they had a grand ole time!

A huge attraction was the worms that were brought to the surface! They were huge, roughly 4-6 inches (maybe some bigger). My hubby was wishing he had his fishing liscense after handling these worms.

Then they really got into doing what I LOVE to see boys do, run, jump, play, get dirty!!!!!

    I am so glad we picked up the blue boots! I love those puddles! And Daddy has boots too? WOW! When is Mom going to get boots? 

  2. What fun!  Love the pictures.  I guess I am wondering why bother with the boots.  Bare feet are fun in water and mud!
