rain: i love you

az is basically perfection right now.

*days like today are the days that cancel out the ugly-ish trees by the side of the freeway & for-real-bushes that are on the way to church that totally look like for-real-weeds.

*days like today are the days that cancel out the {extreme} hotter than hot temperatures june-september.

*days like today are the days that cancel out the fact that tulips & gerbs only last .2 after planting here.


*days like today make me want to go on a long stroll with my family-n-dog.

so we did.

and we got about 3/4 of a mile away, and it sorta started pouring.

{it was very, very fun.}

and chloe looks a tad bitter in this picture, but i promise she had a blast.

so did mr. miyagi, so did myron, and so did i.

rain, rain, don't go away, come again another day...

{happy wet monday}

Oh my gosh, today was crazy! Eve hates the wind blowing on her, so she was pissed, but Devlin thought the puddles were awesome! When we got home from Target, his shoes were soaking so I put them on the porch to dry because the sun had come out.

Then an hour later when it was time to go to preschool...it was pouring again and his shoes were full of rainwater. Niiiiiice.

I LOVE/miss AZ rain so much I can barely take it. The desert rain smell is seriously one of my favorite things. I guess I'll just hafta settle for FREEZING Utah snow.

I love the rain too! Spesh when it is warm out! But remember back when AZ hadn't had any rain for like 100+ days - around when you had your SE baby shower - and then it rained/monsooned for like a week straight? Yeah, that was the week I came to visit/vacation in the warm AZ sun. Didn't like the rain so much then!

Your pictures are cute! I love it when little girls get attitude, just you wait!
