Rainy Days

Friday night Checkered and Boy 1 left to join the other 5th grade scouts at camp. They envisioned something like this:
Too bad for them that the remnants of some hurricane arrived here for a week-end visit. It rained without ceasing from Friday night through Sunday morning. So while Checkered and Boy 1 found that their tent leaked and that their shoes and sleeping bags were mighty slow to dry, the other three kids and I had some fun.

You see, when the hurricane remnant arrived, it brought with it his distant cousins, Lethargy and Carefree.

The other cousin, lots of video play time came, too.



Thank goodness, cookie baking time, stopped by.



And just when we were settling into our rainy week-end, Checkered called to say they were drenched, dirty, and tired and would be breaking camp a day early. That meant we had to scramble to get dressed, hide the evidence of our family room picnic, and act like we worked very hard while they were gone.
On Sunday the rains were still here, but what better thing to do than an old fashioned puddle-stomping!




Hope your week-end was equally as fun!

Mountain Dew Dumplings are my sanity for an insane world. I LOVE THEM! Be careful though. Thet are so easy and so addicting...I am currently looking for a 12 step program to help me. With ice cream especially.
