If all the rain drops were lemon drops and gum drops...

The rainy weather was feeling a bit left out today, what with all that sunshine getting so much attention lately, so it decided to come back for a visit.

I invited it in (to the front lawn - not the house itself - just to make things clear) and offered it a home made chocolate chip cookie, but after the initial smiles and welcomes and puddle-jumping fun, our conversation grew stilted. Awkward. 

The rain has a habit of outstaying its welcome.

I tried to drop a few subtle hints as I felt too polite to simply ask it to leave, but in the end I had to slip back inside and hope it would simply go away.

Playing outside with the rain always leaves me longing for a nice warm shower.

 The Lily Bug on the other hand, would have been happy to stay outside and continue dancing between raindrops. And throw soggy grass at the car. All. Day. Long.


  1. Lol! So cute! I hope rain got the message and left shortly after ;o) Thanks for joining us for Around the World Tuesday this week!

  2. I love this post! If we had switched places, I would be thinking the same and long after the rain had departed, my girls would still be hurling grass at the car.

  3. Ha, ha! Lovely moment captured and what fun (apart from the cleaning up of the little grass person afterwards...).

  4. I love, love, love running around outside with my girls in the rain. They ask all the time to do it :) Great post!
