Listening to the Rain - Kids Summer Bucket List

We've had weather whip-lash here in Southern California this week.  We had record breaking heat earlier in the week, then today the humidity set in and rain.  Yes rain.  It's practically unheard of to have rain in the Summer here and humidity is even more rare.

So what did we do?  We quickly added something to our Kids Summer Bucket List - sitting outside under the pergola listening to the rain fall around us.  Sitting and listening to the rain has been one of my favorite things ever since I was a child.  If I heard the rain I would get up and sit with my face pressed up against the window just listening.  I could listen for hours.

One more un-expected Summer experience can be crossed off the Kids Summer Bucket List!

My kids are mostly annoyed with the rain because it closed our club's pool. I think it is very strange but very cool.

as soon as the rain started I darkened the house and sat on the porch.

I'm from the desert and the humidity was not my friend today. The weather has been crazy lately.

I love this weather. I can almost pretend I'm back East. Now we just need a really good thunder and lightning storm!

Listening to the rain is a very good thing to do. Good thinking mama!

Crazy weather...but I actually really like the smell of rain (Weird right)? It was nice to have a bit of a reprieve from the heat
