This is about the best thing that has happened
around this place in ages !
Honest to goodness rain! And wow ... real mud puddles.
How terrific is that?!
Hummm ... wonder how deep we can make this hole?
Yep, Lucy got the word. It's her mud hole, now.
The little girls are not so sure.
This is their first experience with rain,
and that can be very frightening, you know.
The only things they've know have been
the lawn sprinklers and the pond.
Yikes! What is this stuff falling all over us?
Now ... this is much better.
In fact, the rain has stopped, but we'll just stay put.
We can watch everything from here.
Maybe next time we'll go for the mud puddles.
