The girls have been wanting to take an afternoon walk to the park all week and every day we have had a rain storm. Today it was sunny so we set out to walk to a park about 1/2 mile from the house. It was hot, but a beautiful sunny afternoon. The girls were able to play about 15 minutes when a dark cloud came up and a HUGE clap of thunder sounded. Needless to say we started back home. It started sprinkling huge, hard drops. We picked up the pace as much as their short little legs could go. Just as we got in the bottom dropped and it started hailing. Within a couple of minutes it stopped and the sun came back out. We can still hear thunder so we don't want to venture out again just yet. Later this evening we have plans to go to the Irish Festival. I hope the rain is gone by then, or we will have to change our plans.
Maybe tomorrow will be a better day for a nice long walk and some outside play time.
