Catching Raindrops

We had some fast-moving thunderstorms move through today, including one just as we were eating dinner, so when Anthony finished we headed outside for some play in the rain. It was letting up as we got out there, but there were puddles aplenty to be found...

Satisfaction

Some things are universal and never change. Here's a post from 3+ years ago where he's doing the same thing. He really wanted to go out while it was pouring, though we didn't make it in time. He did get to go into a major downpour last summer and didn't really care for it, but now he seems quite eager. We'll have be on the lookout for a good storm.

Maki made the point that “When it rains Americans take their kids outside to get poured on, but Japanese parents get mad if they don’t use their umbrellas to keep every single raindrop off them.”

“Solid Wall of Water” looks remarkably like your Milk Drops post from last month.

Just a quick note to say that I love the little, exquisitely photographed glimpses into your life almost as much as your geo plugin for lightroom 🙂
