Playing in the rain

It has rained all day today. We took a quick trip to JoAnn's to get some glue sticks to make a bunch of Valentines cards. After that the kids wanted to go out in the rain and play.

I do send my kids out in warm rain coats, but keeping it on them is the hard part. Stella is pretty stubborn and takes it off pretty much as soon as she is out of my reach.

Stella is sprinting from one end of the yard to the other in this picture. She points to where she is going and then counts to three and runs.

Stella's in a daze as raindrops from the porch drop on her arm. Now they are in a cozy warm bath filled with toys and bubbles. I love days like this. The tv hasn't been on all day and I have'nt felt the desprate need to turn it on to occupy them for my own sanity.

I have great memories of playing in the rain for hours when I was little. It's something I don't let me own kids do often enough.

I love how the only thing even close to being in focus in that first photo is her bright red boot. Precious.
