a rare treat

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. 


  1. Love the rain coat!!

    I am surprised that you didn't get any snow. We got about 6-8 inches but it didn't last long because it turned to slush. Louisville, where Matt works, actually got 12 inches on Friday night when he was working.

    Let's get together soon. Hope the weather is good for the farmer's market next Saturday!!

  2. How fun! My folks live in Colorado too, up in the mountains, and coming from the soggy East Coast proudly state (a little too often, if you ask me:-) that CO gets "300 days of sun a year."

    Thanks for posting my button - the response so far is very good, with surveys from all over the US and even from other countries!
    The more the merrier...
