When we last visited Mema's house in towards the end of July, she bought the girls some umbrellas. They have been waiting to use them since JULY. It did start to sprinkle one day a few weeks ago, but before we could even blink it stopped. Well today, we were all cuddled up on the couch reading through the huge stack of library books we checked out this morning when rain starts falling from the sky. As quick as we could we got out our umbrellas and ran outside. The rain lasted maybe five minutes, but the girls didn't care. They were twirling and dancing and having a great time with their umbrellas. Plus there was just enough rain to put down some decent size puddles. The had fun splashing, jumping, skipping and running through them. Izzie even tried to swim in one.
We stayed out there for a good 30-40 minutes, at the end of which I was drenched. Not from the rain, but from the humidity! But it was good fun. There is more rain scheduled for later this week so hopefully we'll get a chance to really dance and sing in the rain. I have too many favorite photos of our little adventure, so I'm just going to post them all. Izzie is in the flower dress and Maddie is in the red dress.
