There is something about a warm August rain. You can take your shoes off and just walk around - on the gravel, in the grass, in the mud - it's all good. Em LOVES splashing in the puddles. She stayed outside for an extra twenty minutes after Oren and I came inside to towel off. Part of me wanted to let her stay outside for as long as she wanted, but the mommy part of me knew that her fingers and toes were slowly but surely turning into raisins.
