A storm and a Duck Rain Coat!

Here's Ms Ellie outside playing in the rain. She's wearing a little duck rain coat I found for her. Isnt she adorable? She wouldnt talk to me or look at me so I could get the front of the coat. It has a duck face. She's been a real little monster lately. This was a weird storm we had last week, you could literally see the rain coming like curtains and you had time to get inside. We have a small set of woods behind the houses where we live and you could also hear the rain in the woods before it hit us.
I tried to capture the rainbow, maybe if you click on the picture and enlarge it, you will be able to see the rainbow. These are the summer rainstorms I enjoy, they dont last all day and they still allow you to be outside. There wasnt much lightning with this one either so as bad as the sky looks, Ellie was able to play outside.

9 Thanks for your comments!:

Cute picture. Kids are something else at times, aren't they?
We are supposed to have a storm today, but so far it's sunny and nice.

My kids had rain coats like this and I always loved how they looked in them. Your rain sounds delightful as it is hot and dry here in the desert.

Aren't those storms weird when the rain comes in waves. I know what you mean about hearing the rain in
the woods around the house but not actually in the yard. Strange! Happy Monday.
