dancing in the rain in your swimsuit

right now my 8 year old nephew and 37 year old husband are outside in the rain here in South Beach; when my nephew asked if he could put his suit on and go out in the rain, we said, WHY NOT?

we just finished a morning of no tv, etc, and talking about the importance of using your own imagination...

so now my hubby has donned his cowboy hat...(hello Colorado state of mind) and he and the neph are exploring the gently rain soaked world.... it is a soft musical rain...

life is good... my heart is happy... they said they just saw "the biggest puddle on the planet!"

to see an 8 year old enjoy walking around barefoot in the rain, and stick his head under a gutter of rain water, because he could, because his aunt said, okay, and start asking questions about the world out there, hanging out with his uncle and lizards and tropical life and bugs, puddles to splash...

we are happy to be making such memories for him (and us...)

  2. Awwww! That is so sweet! Sounds like fun and maybe we'll have to try it with our 2 kiddos next time it rains! What a sweet aunt and uncle y'all are - if you were closer, I'd have you over to play with us!

  4. That's a great story. Some of my favorite memories are of dancing and singing and running in the rain on my grandfather's farm. So now when there's a nice juicy torrent coming down, I like to let my little ones out into the little garden to enjoy life.
