Chris was working for most of the day (except for when we had to pick up our van from the shop and return the rental car, which was when we went through the storm), and once he dropped us off the storm cleared and it started getting sunny out. And hot.
Our front section of property slopes down, and the bottom part kind of serves as a retention pond. As such, it had collected quite a bit of rain water, and the boys saw it and asked if they could play in it after lunch. So when the baby went down for his nap, I took the big boys out to frolic in our new redneck pool. Observe:
