Prior to our beautiful weather this week, we had a weekend of rain. And by rain I'm referring to 6+ inches in 3 days. R-A-I-N, rain! Our playground transformed into a pond or swimming pool, and Monday morning I couldn't resist taking the kids out in their (quickly rendered useless) rain boots to find the deepest puddles. Boy, did we find them! Our friend, Inka*, caught the action in photos from her balcony.
Really, it's not too bad.
Elizabeth headed further in to our left,
while Brian and I continued straight ahead.
She ended up with boots full of water;
we rescued her from a park bench.
This picture best displays the depth of the water on that far end of the playground. You can just see the tops of my boots.
Even more amazing: the playground was mud-free the following day and many moms and kids were out enjoying the 50 degree weather and sunshine we'd missed having over the weekend!
