Waiting for May Flowers

April showers have come to us and it is sometimes tricky to find interesting things to do while the waters pour from the sky. At least today, however, we were quite successful with discovering fun pastimes. By far and above, the most recommended piece of advice on a rainy day is to go outside. The type of rain gear that you don doesn't matter too much because, no matter how you dress, the bottom line is that you will get wet. But when that is part of the fun, you begin to not mind that sloshy feeling.

Puddles and kids both seem to enjoy each other.

Wet wave.

And when you're warm and dry and sitting inside, why not pull out a big mirror and try a photography trick?

Extended legs.

If you want to pretend that you are a twin, grab a doll and dress her up to match your outfit.

And if you are in the mood for a good laugh, try a new exercise routine. Rebecca and I gave pilates (thanks, Uncle Jim, for the suggestion!) a very noble attempt.

Our first attempt at pilates. We laughed much!
