Rain, Rain, Go Away...

I've been at my mom's since Monday, and it really hasn't stopped raining since. The rain started on our way down here, and it was such a heavy downpour, I asked Ethan to pray for us. About 20 minutes later, a semi completely obliterated another car just a little in front of us. We were at a dead standstill for probably close to half an hour, watching the tow trucks work on removing all the crushed metal from the road. But the Lord kept us safe, and I am so thankful for that!

But what to do when you're at Grandma's and it rains all week? Well, I'm embarrassed to admit it, but we've been to the mall twice! At least it has been 2 different malls. The one we went to today had a huge shooting water fountain in the center of it, which was a big hit with the boys.


Simon couldn't stay away from his duck blanket for very long though.


Ethan did Build-a-Bear and created his very own football-playing "Mr. Giggles".


And Grandma bought toy cell phones for the boys...thanks, Grandma!


We head home tomorrow, but we've had a great time, despite the rain. Sweet dreams, everyone!

Thanks, Heather! It was great to see you all too! I'm so glad it worked out that we could see you guys while we are here. Let me know how the nursing school thing goes, and keep us posted about Melissa, okay?

Isn't this rain miserable? It's been like this for weeks now.

Glad you are back safe and sound! Out here in Arizona, we would love some rain, so I will live vicariously through you! It's been months! Your boys look like they had fun!
