Rain, rain . . . . . . glorious, wonderful, magnificent rain! Where have thy been? We don't get enough of the wet stuff here in Southern Arizona,so when we do, the kids gravitate to it like a moth to a flame. My grandson was over this morning and he couldn't wait to go out and get wet. Of course I had to get my camera out and capture his happy play.
It started out as a soft rain. He took it easy, catching the raindrops in the watering can. He was amazed at the "music" each drop would make as it dripped into the metal can. Then as the rain started to get heavier, it was time to get out our rickety umbrella. I really hoped a strong wind wouldn't come up and swoop him away.
After he became "brave", he forgot about the umbrella and searched for the water puddles. I put my camera on action mode as he jumped with joy, splashing up and down with all his might. Once the rain really started pouring, he went back to the safety of the umbrella, so he could take one last look at the "lakes" that were beginning to form in the back yard.
Finally, after much prodding by myself, it was time to get dry and rest. And what's the best thing to do on a rainy day? "Craft", as Coen would say. I agreed with him. Of course, his "craft" had to involve more water!
I would love to give away a medium flat rate USPS box full of scrapping goodness to one of my readers. There is a ton of patterned paper, stickers, embellishments of all kinds, (chipboard, brads, buttons, die cuts), stamps, ribbons, and much more. About 6 months ago I purchased a similar box stuffed full of supplies from Wendy Sue Anderson, and I had some duplicates, so I purged my stash. If you would like to have a fun, surprise filled package come your way, all you have to do is become a follower of by blog. Then leave me a comment on this post to let me know that you have started following me. If you already are a follower, just leave a comment letting me know you already follow my blog, but still would like to win the fun package. I'm sorry to say, this is for U.S. shipping only. So sorry to my international friends. Become a follower and leave a message by midnight MST on Monday April 30th. I will announce the winner sometime Tuesday May 1st, and get it off in the mail. Good luck, and happy scrapping!
