  • Not yet, but when he's older, he'll definitely be allowed to play in the rain on occasion.

  • I would if it ever rained here. 129 straight days with no measurable rain, and none coming any time soon. I wouldn't let them play if there was lightning though.

  • We love running around in the rain. If it's not thundering or lightening out, we're outside. Doesn't matter how much rain there is, we love jumping in the puddles in our bare feet :-) And sloshing through the mud. Still as an adult, mud between my toes just feels neat!
    We won't go outside if there is lightening or thunder though.
    I just make sure we're all wearing old clothes (usually stuff that's already stained) and leave a towel on the porch to wipe our feet on.
