It's still raining - part 2

Well it's continued to be torrential on and off here last night and today. Oh and it's muggy, really sticky icky muggy, it's gross, the kids are gross, we are all gross. Thankfully this afternoon there has been a bit of reprieve with the heavy rain and DH came home early due to road closures and sever storm warnings (that were expected this afternoon, but we're canceled). So with a break in the heavy rain we decided to go outside and play with the kids in our sopping wet, water logged back hard.

The kids of course couldn't help but climb into the calm shell which was full of cold rain water and splash around.

DH and I than couldn't help ourselves and started wedding the gardens (they are beyond horrendous at the moment), a job made easier with the ground being so wet. The kids followed us around the yard and we all got well and truly muddy. Ahhh but we had a cool rain water bath so to speak to clean off in a bit, then it was inside for showers and proper clean ups.

A rather fun, and unexpected family afternoon together.


  1. I couldn't think of a better way to have fun with the kids, and they look like they're having a ball.

    Best rainy day idea ever! You must live up near my Mum where it hasn't stopped raining and her garden is a lake. A few rainy day ideas for little artists if you are looking for them:
