Rainy Picnic

The Scudders and the Headleys decided to have a picnic in the middle of the week. We thought it would be great to meet at the park and just hang out and bar-b-que some hot dogs. It was hysterical because it literally poured rain. Here we have had absolutely NO rain for months and it rains on the only day that we decide to have a picnic. The kids were soaked to their bones. Other parents were yelling for their children to run for cover and left the park dissappointed that their visit was cut short. Our kids were running around wild with not a single care in the world about getting wet. It was awesome. Not only was it a complete change in the norm that we all so desperately needed but we were awesome parents for allowing our children the freedom to make the choice to stay out in the rain.

How fun, it reminds me of my favorite time to go to the beach was when it was raining. My friend and I would go to the lighthouse, where the ways would splash up on the rocks real high and hard. We would play chicken.
