Do You Think We Live in the Desert?

Yes. Which is why we get very excited about rain and thunder and lightening. We are teased with it often during our little monsoon season, but we're often disappointed that it doesn't really come down. But today it finally happened. The kids watched patiently from the porch for a while, but when it really started to pour, they couldn't resist!

Ryder was very happy that he woke up from his nap in time for the fun


Ahhh.... the love

We liked it too. Katelyn was freaked out by the thunder, but it was fun.

Great pictures! I am always so happy when it rains, too!

My kids watched from the upstairs window, not nearly as much fun!

Your background fix worked. Your blog is readable again. Thanks!

That last picture is probably the cutest thing I have ever seen!!

I love it that your kids went out to play in the storm instead of like everyone else staying out of it (including me). Very cute pictures!

Those are the cutest pictures! While you all were out playing in the rain I was driving around with my kid of a husband looking for huge puddles and mud.

We were in Walmart when the thunder started, and I was so sad we were going to miss the whole thing, we missed nothing!!! I love the rain what a great birthday present!!! Love the photos was this before the "planned" temple trip?

I wanted to run outside so badly, but we had to leave to start driving to California so we didn't get there too late. It looks like the kids had tons of fun. I am so jealous.
