playing in the rain

the kids got rain coats, boots, and umbrellas for Christmas and have been begging to play outside in the rain well tonight they were granted their wish. It has rained a couple of times but either it was lightening or too cold to just wear their rain coats, so after supper tonight they donned their gear and were playing in the rain. I think Audrey had the most fun as you can see the splashing from her boots in the 3rd picture, there was a small puddle behind the basketball hoop that she was jumping in, needless to say she was soaked when she was done, and i don't think much of it was from the rain i think it was the puddle. Its amazing to watch the excitement of kids in the rain, Hayden sat in the garage in the stroller and even laughed watching them play. Today they had school, i was on the ball this am and went to the gym and ran before school started and then after dropping the trips off we came home hayden napped, I showered and made my grocery list and off i headed to the store. We even went to dairyhaven tonight after dinner.
Work went well this past sunday I was nervous at first but then once i started taking calls i was a little more comfortable and everybody was so helpful with the TON of questions that i asked. Next week i think Chris is going to take a day off and we are going to take the kids to the zoo, for the first time this season, I was going to take them tomorrow but the weather is going to be less than stellar here so hopefully next week. Oh well i am going to read my magazine and then go to bed early, Chris's alarm went off at 630 for the car seat certification class and will be getting up early all week to be at work by 7, yuck i don't mind waking up early I just don't do well waking up to an alarm if that makes any sense.

How fun! You know at times I wish I had rain boots and a matching umbrella to play in the rain...even as an adult. They look like they enjoyed it for sure...such big smiles!

That looks like so much fun we just walked out of the gym in the rain after that none of us were in the mood to play in the stuff.
