We have had so much rain here in the last week - apparently the dams got 1 years worth of water in about 3 days. Bizarre after being drought stricken for ages. It has been absolutely torrential (obviously) but this morning was fairly tame so I let the kids go out for a play. They had a ball of course (and left a trail of wet muddy destruction on their way back into the house!).
JoJo decided to investigate the alternative possibilities of her umbrella and rigged up a pretty nifty pulley system to that she then wanted X to ride on... I vetoed that one, knowing that I'd have one broken umbrella and 2 kids in tears. It was a pretty cool idea though!
