Why Wait For A Rainy Day?

Miss Amelia was very clear about what she wanted for her fifth birthday a few weeks ago: a G.I. Joe ship (yes, you read that correctly) and a Sleeping Beauty umbrella. She got both, but only one is photogenic ;).  
April showers had not yet begun, yet she was anxious to put her gift to use. So, we headed into the backyard, fired up the hose, and made our own rain. We thoroughly sprayed the umbrella...and then the dog a little bit...and then perhaps each other just a wee tad...


  1. What a great idea! Celia's a big fan of her Dora umbrella and her raincoat and has recently gotten interested in getting rain boots. Until then, the kids just splash in the puddles in their shoes. Isn't being a kid great?! When else can you splash in puddles while passers by root you on?
