Playin' in the Rain

Since rain kept us from fulfilling our promise to take the girls to the pool this afternoon, we decided to let them play in the rain instead.  They didn't seem to believe us at first, as if it were some grand reward that couldn't possibly be true.  I told them about how, when I was a kid, I loved splashing in the gutters and finding worms on the sidewalk.

Emily and Kendall didn't do any puddle splashing or puddle jumping, but they enjoyed running around the yard getting wet.  Kendall insisted on wearing her bathing suit, and Emily opted for an umbrella (mainly so she could twirl it).

Seeing them use their imaginations always makes me happy.  Emily sat under the tree pretending to be on a raft, while Kendall pretended to be a fairy painting color on the leaves.
