Puddle O' Fun

It rained something fierce this weekend.  

The kids had fun watching the rain from the kitchen window.  It felt like the scene from Forrest Gump where Forrest describes all the different types of rain he saw while in Vietnam.  We had rain coming in sideways, rain that was bouncing off the ground, hail (small marble sized), rain that was misty...it was nuts.  

Finally, on Sunday, we had a little break in the storms.  The kids quickly discovered that there was a small pond in our backyard.  After frantically getting on their rubber boots (The Dude had to borrow a pair of pink and purple ones left from daycare) the kids went outside.  

This is a little video clip that showcases the state of our backyard and the kiddo's.

Enjoy!
