Splashing in the rain

Some may have abandoned the pastime of splashing in the rain when they were 3 years old. But for others, the magic still remains powerful, and they succumb to the puddles' calls. I would belong to the latter group. I really don't know what else there is to do with rain.

I love that picture! The big blue umbrella under the flowering tree branches is almost magical! So good job! I wish I had some time to play in puddles! Kolby's favorite thing is to drive through big puddles. When we were dating, I think we did that for a couple of our dates! Yep, he was a big spender! I hope I'll get to see you sometime soon. We need to have a freshman reunion and go hog-wild!

In my house that I grew up in we had a really big yard for orange county, like an acre, and it would get flooded and a bunch of kids would come over and we would slide on it with boogie boards. If you haven't tried that out on the Jefferson memorial, I would recommend it.

aaaah! I wish I was there. Alas, I was in Chicago drudging in the not so fun rain! BUT I got to see Wend and to announce- her babys name is Caroline and she is sooooo cute! We need to go visit her asap okay? Loves!

Yes, the mystery baby has a name! I was beginning to wonder if Wendy and Brandon made it all up and there was no baby. By the way, why doesn't Wendy blog? Girls, we need to do something about this! Tag team guilt trip? Let me know if you're in!

Where was this puddle? A place in DC I have yet to discover?

Nic - I will definitely have to try that. I can't think of a better place than Jefferson.

Jess- I am all about guilt trips. Count me in.

Micah - This puddle is probably not new, but probably was never as unprotected as on that morning. It is in the National Arboretum, by the capital columns.
