I have loved all of this rainy weather. I heard the weather person say that 13 out of the 16 days of June had been rainy. That is crazy for Utah! I have always loved summer rainstorms though- so for me it's been great. I love the smell and the warm winds and even the sound of thunder. The boys have had fun and only Elliott has complained a little that he can't ride his bike.
He thought it was funny to run in the rain with his umbrella. Silly boy.
Playing in the gutter. I don't see too many kids doing this now, but it's what I did when I was little- so I still get excited for the boys. We get the popsicle sticks ready for boats and when the rain lets up, we go out until there isn't enough water anymore.
I couldn't believe Ollie was so timid with this puddle. Everywhere we go (including church) he will find the tiniest puddle and splash in it. He is a little scared of the thunder and there was lots going on in this storm.
My flowerbeds have been loving it too.
Here's Ollie in his "blanket clothes" after we came in. He kept asking if it looked like his blanket was his clothes.
We've seen a few rainbows too. The boys get so excited to see them.
Here's Elliott looking at the rainbow to get the exact colors for his picture.
I love rainbows too. This one was a double. It will be cool to see all of our lakes full this summer from all of the rain!
