Weekending




Our weekend was punctuated with RAIN RAIN RAIN! Glorious down pours, especially Sunday morning. The kids had such fun outside. It is always amazing to me that here in the desert when it FINALLY rains that so many people hole up in there houses and grumble. We have been waiting months for this rain. I was sure we were going to be passed over by the monsoon season and yet here it is lightening, thunder, wild winds, and rain.
We celebrated Cae's birthday number two with his sister, Derek, and Nana on Sunday afternoon. Had a great dinner and fun gifts and a decent cake. I do love baking, I just can't seem to always hit the nail on the head and get those baked goods just right, ah well, Cae loved it and that is what counts.

Yay rain! I have no idea how you do it! I am midwesterner and while we get our fair share I have always longed to live somewhere with more :) I just love rain! :)

Wow, that was a lot of rain!!!
We've been having stormy weather this past couple of days too. There is something about a storm that clears the air and freshens everything up :)
