Kick Off Your Boots

It hasn't rained in a loooooong time.
It's been really hot.  Almost too hot to do anything unless you've got a pool {which we don't}.
It's starting to show in the kids' behaviours.
Cabin fever, anyone?

But it rained yesterday. 
A much needed downpour {would have been nice if it lasted a bit longer, but...}

And even though I was in the middle of making supper... we went outside!
I waited until it was a bit more of sprinkle, but they had a blast. 

Because Memphis is on the spectrum, he's a rule-follower & it was really, really, really hard for me to convince him that it was okay to go outside IN THE RAIN without a rain jacket.  He was a little freaked out.

He DID NOT want to take his boots off... but come on, what's better than running in the rain barefoot... he needed to experience it at least once...

So I talked him through it... and I think he sorta liked it!
He was quick to put his boots back on after I snapped a few photos, though. 

The rain cooled us all off just when we needed it most!

NOT SO Funny story of the day:
Memphis got a hold of my phone, and somehow managed to spend $50 worth of ''coins'' on some stupid game... seriously.  Don't let your kids play on your phones, people! :S

  1. Cute pictures!!! Love your blog, I'm a new follower from the blog hop today!! :)

  2. I remember running and putting on my bathing suit when I was little as soon as it started raining hard.

  3. Great pictures Lena! I love letting the boys play out in the rain!

  4. Oh man, I've heard way too many "horror stories" about kids and phones--if they just push the wrong buttons, it can be so expensive!

  5. AW fun!!! Yep, every kid needs to get out and play in the rain! :) Sorry about the phone coins... Those games are ca-razy! for that kind of thing!


I ♥ hearing from you!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a little message!
