Rain!

For the past few days we have actually had enough water fall from the sky and get the ground wet to call it rain. Today I asked the girls if they wanted to go out and get me the mail in the rain, with their new umbrellas from the WWF. They, of course, jumped at the chance to use the umbrellas.E waiting for her sister to open her umbrella. She managed to get it open by herself, which is not a big feat until you remember that, unlike a lot of kids, she can count on her digits how many times she has seen rain in the last four years!




The girls walking across to the mailbox. Notice the shiny wet landscape. It's WATER! No, I'm not excited or happy about this, really, I'm not.




Heading back in with the mail. Ever watch a couple kids try to hold umbrellas, use a key to open a little door, and extract the mail from the tiny box inside, all while trying not to get wet? It's pretty funny. Luckily the pieces of mail E dropped on the ground, not once but three times, were just junk mail!



All the rain and clouds have made for some beautiful atmospheric displays. Here is a shot of a sunset seen from our upstairs bathroom the other night:
