On Monday, it was gorgeous, gorgeous weather. 75 degrees, sunny, clear and beautiful.
The munchkins were bouncing off the walls, so I let them both outside on the grass with a bucket of water and some large spoons for entertainment.
Holly had never been allowed outside like that before. She thought she was in heaven.
Alex discovered the drain in the corner of the sidewalk, and dumped buckets and buckets of water down it. Here he is, carefully ladelling more water down the drain. Lovely, sparkly water.
Here's one of the tea roses that was picked and dunked in the bucket shortly after this photo was taken:
And then Tuesday, the storm front hit.
Frightening clouds! Full of wind and rain and coldness! But hey, the valley's dry, so we need all we can get. :-)
