When the rain comes...

...they run outside.

One of the beauties of our mediterranean climate here is that we get basically no rain during the summer. This summer was dry. And by that, I mean that we had--barring a single sprinkle in October--exactly zero picoinches of rain from sometime in April until saturday. Then we got over 1,200,000,000,000 picoinches throughout the day. So:

It started with a walk around EV with the kids, Little on her very favorite bike:

Then we just basically had a hydrophilic free-for-all until lunch. Enjoy!

Little and her best friend Olivander earnestly went to work digging a hole in the sand. Nobody quite knows why, but neither of them could be bothered for quite a while.

Littler discovers which direction rain comes from:

Of course, we are due for a dozen inches [that's 12,000,000,000,000 picoinches, if you're counting] or so over the next 6 months so maybe the novelty will wear off. But hopefully not!

I just marvel at how lucky your girls are to have their kidhood documented in such quality - once in a lifetime portraits taken every day, basically.

Someday I WILL get a nice camera, and you WILL have to teach me everything you know, and I will do my best and they will still come out not so good, but I will be so happy!!
