While Andy and Ashley were out a few days ago, when we were expecting 20 inches of snow, it began to rain. It has probably rained less than 5 times in the year and a half that we've lived here, so this was a rare treat! Zoe ran up and got her raincoat, which luckily still fit okay. She's long outgrown her rain boots, which I never bothered to replace, obviously. :-)
She had such a good time that I think it may have made up for that fact that we got barely a few moments of snow flakes, during the two days straight of rain that followed. After she walked around for a while she used paint brushes to draw in the mud, talking to herself the whole time. It was so cute.
