April Showers Bring...

May Flowers

It's May and the flowers are lovely.  It rained yesterday.  It's been raining.  We haven't received the torrential storms that have devastated so many other southern states.  Our rain has been beneficial and helpful to the plants and flowers.  We've had thunderstorm warnings and tornado warnings but nothing directly where we live.

"So let us know, let us press on to know the LORD
His going forth is as certain as the dawn;
And He will come to us like the rain,
Like the spring rain watering the earth."

I could stop with that beautiful thought...

But I won't.

Here are some fun images of the boys.

Will loves to play in the rain.  Yesterday he wanted to splash in the rain puddles.  Once Ben saw Will playing in the rain, he wanted to play too.

Happy Boy

By the look on Ben's face, he's not enjoying himself.
On the other hand, Will is having a blast.

They were fascinated by the rain coming out of the gutter.
Really, who needs toys when you have rain coming out of the gutter?  They would have stayed there all day if I let them.

Sidewalk chalk in the rain, who says it's a bad idea?  Not me ;)

It's a little messy in the rain, but it still works.
My boys think mess is best :)

  1. Aww, they are so sweet! Barefoot in the rain puddles is the best! Adorable photos! :)

  2. So fun! I used to love playing with chalk - and in the rain, EVEN BETTER!

  3. You are AWESOME that you let your kids run and color and play in the rain. Those are the moments that make childhood memorable and priceless.

    Lovely favorites!
