Shrieking in the Rain!

It's been raining here a lot lately! Not as much as the Midwest but we've had a nice thunderstorm almost every night for the past two weeks. These pictures are from the first storm we had when it was beastly hot and everyone was feeling a bit cranky. As soon as I heard the pitter patter of the rain I told the girls to go get their suits. We changed in record time and I released them onto the back porch. Abby had never played in the rain before but she took to it like a duck to water! Katie had been wanting to play in the rain since the last time she did it last summer! Of course I couldn't exactly let her run around in the rain in the middle of December! They were so happy! They ran around shrieking gleefully and trying to catch raindrops on their tongue! It relieved a lot of stress and it was just plain fun!I can't remember what Abby was pointing at here. I think it might have been a truck. Anyway, she was so cute I couldn't resist taking a picture!
Here Abby is posing! I of course had to take a picture because as I have explained before Abby is not one to stand still and smile for a picture!
I think this picture captures the pure joy of the moment!Katie and Abby both thought I was the coolest mom ever to let them play out in the rain in their swim suits and I have to admit, I felt pretty cool letting them! I'm really not cool though, I just have a few kinda cool moments now and then!
