Rainy season is beginning here. It’s a part of Florida that I enjoy.
I love how things just slow way down during a nice, heavy rain.
I love that my plants get watered the good old fashioned way.
I love the sound of the drops pounding down.
I love the smell of the rain on a really hot day.
I love how everything feels a little more refreshed.
I love huddling together with my babies to watch it fall.
Fortunately for my little adventurers, the water quickly drains to the runoff part of our yard and gives them a massive puddle to splash and play in. It recedes so fast though, so sometimes they barely have enough time to get their boots on before the puddle is almost gone! But on this particular day we were already prepared and ready to go when the rain stopped. Usually the puddles are accompanied by beautiful rainbows (and mosquitoes), but not this time.
