Sorry the pic is sideways. I can't figure out how to flip it :-/

Some of my best childhood memories are of me and my sister playing in the rain. It's nice to see my kids having the joys as me :-)

As soon as I told DD it was raining, she threw on some pants and raced outside. Today's rain was so warm DD didn't even bother with a shirt,lol. But even as I snapped a pic my mind wandered to all the "helpful" neighbors who warned my mom that me and my sister were sure to catch our death out there! My mom would just smile and say sickness is caused by germs, not cold water and we would continue playing. True enough, I have never gotten sick after playing in the rain and neither have any of my kids.

How fun! It rains a lot here, if we didn't go out in it we'd be stuck inside 9 months of the year. Lol

Cute! I love it!

I absolutely would let them if it'd ever rain! We actually got some rain today but I was working. Bah. Both girls talk about how much they love the rain but we haven't had the chance to really go play in it yet. I'm waiting for that day!

I answered "of course" but it hasn't rained here in almost 2 years so I don't remember. Lol.

I've heard of 'catching your death' but I've never known anyone who managed it...

Yes, as long as it's still warm, and there is no thunder/lightening they can play. They often take so long putting away their outdoor stuff (bike helmets, baseball equip) that they are out for a few minutes even when they should be in.

We were out during one time and it started pouring. I pulled into our local park and we went and played on the swings:)
