Life is not about waiting for the storms to pass- it is about learning to dance in the rain.

What a wonderful rainy picnic

I left school today in a steady rain. I called hubby.

What are we doing about the cookout? I ask

We're having it.

Seriously?

Yep. Elizabeth is on her way. Emma will be there. Rachel has the food ready. Everything is set.

It's raining. I respond.

Only a drizzle.

Okay. A drizzle. So we're cooking out in the rain?

Yep. He assures me.

About now I'm beginning to believe him. (He sometimes just leads me on with tall tales!)

Don't you think it's a good idea? He asks.

I think it's crazy. I respond. But...it also sounds like fun.

It's warm. He says. And he's right. It was 74 degrees outside. 'Bout right for an outdoor shower!!!

And it was fun!!!

The kids had fun playing in the rain.

Miss April from the Nature Center helped them catch water bugs off the dock.

And they loved roasting hot dogs over the fire.

So did everyone else too!!


That's me fixing my favorite fire roasted hot dog!

Later we cooked s'mores too.

Wes had a great time fixing a huge fire. He had a pickup full of wood pallets to burn. They made a huge fire!!! I think we startled Ms. April with the size of the fire!!wonderful day!!! Now I gotta go get the girls for the drawing!!!

I'm glad everyone had a good time. I'm not a big fan of getting soaking wet.
