Wordful Wednesday

Tuesday, April 21, 2009

Yesterday we had our first thunderstorm of the season. I love thunderstorms and have fond memories of sitting out on our screened porch one summer, when Aiden was one and we were but a small family of 3 (plus 165 lb great dane, Max), watching the storms roll by, and waiting for the rainbow to appear. Aiden would sit in his daddy's lap and Max would sit in mine. Ah, good times. Too bad we had to move and leave the screened porch behind.

Anyway, yesterday was quite exciting as it was Bella's first thunderstorm and the first one Jackson could remember. Bella was a very brave guard dog and barked all the thunder away. Jackson clung to me for dear life. After all the fun was over, hubbie left for school. He called about 5 minutes later to say he'd seen the biggest rainbow just down the street. Of course we had to go investigate.




When we returned home, Aiden jumped out of the van and began splashing in puddles. One thing led to another and soon little man was in on the action. Princess Bryn chose to watch from a safe distance. Mom had lots of fun washing clothses and scrubbing tubs last night. Here's a slide show of the splashin' good time and the aftermath.

My W W is now published. I hope you can stop by sometime if you find time. It's a YOU TUBE I made of slides on a walking tour I took my husband on this past Saturday. If you have speakers, turn up the volume...some good music was added! Happy Wednesday!
