Our Reprieve

I really had full intentions of blogging about our fantastic 5 days with Aunt Maxey in Austin...at least having a post up about one of the days... But the plan has changed. I am going to take pause and instead direct your attention to the true miracle we experienced today- our own little neighborhood bliss. Was it the 107 degree temps that we had today? No... no miracle there... more like a bit of H-E-double-hockey-sticks if you ask me. I am choosing to overlook the earlier scorching hours of the day and focus on the blissful raindrops that appeared in abundance late afternoon! That's right, folks'--- it rained!!!

I know. I am in shock still. And our yard? Well, let's just say I could almost here it shriek with glee too--- or perhaps that was just the cracks in the soil being filled with water. Sweet sweet relief indeed. My take is when a miracle like this happens you need to celebrate it and even better... make a party out of it! Have I mentioned how much I love our neighbors? Well, I do. Splashing fun in your skivvys? Sounds like a perfect way to soak up the rain!

I am really bummed that we didn't get a picture of them walking single file down the road in umbrellas.... it was very Abbey Road.

And what could be better than an umbrella commune?

Apparently, nothing. Best tent city ever and even better way to cool off and burn energy before bedtime.
Don't be a stranger, rain!!
