Running, running, rain!!!!
Now let me stop a minute and say that Jon used to run but hasn't in a long long time. I am an aspiring runner, so neither one of us have good running shoes. Bad, bad, bad, I know my legs have told me this every time after a run/walk. Well we are now both looking for good running shoes to save our legs, this little adventure just put us over the top. Jello legs and shin splints, which Jon inevitably got from all the running, have convinced us that it is time for the right shoes.
So anyway we got back to the corner of our neighborhood and the heavens opened. Luckily the thunder and lighting stopped, the rain was fairly warm and the drops were those nice big summer drops. That being said little Ms. Jellybean was NOT HAPPY with the situation AT ALL!! Boogie thought it was like a sprinkler which equals cool in her mind, but Jellybean was screaming like her toes were being pulled off. So, Jon being the fabulous dad that he is, grabbed the stroller again and ran the rest of the way home with the girls. My legs were jello by this point and I was hot and sweaty so I was just enjoying the cool rain. Luckily I made it home before the thunder and lighting started up again and the rain got harder.
So the moral of the story here is....if there is a 55% chance of rain that is 5% on the rain's side, so pack an umbrella, or just stay home. Hopefully this week, Belle will be free in the evening and we will be back to our running schedule.
Oh and just cause their all cute, here are a few pictures....
