Rain

I can't stop laughing about the face Margot makes when water gets anywhere near her face. It poured buckets of rain for about 2 hours while we were in Houston last week. I managed to capture some pictures of the girls behind my parent's house. Her facial expression just kills me! I tried to recreate it for Jeff with the hose yesterday while we were having ice lollies on the front porch. Priceless.







Stella was also out in the rain -- but she looked more like a normal person and not so much like a hross.


It's been raining a lot here too. We are joining forces with our neighbors to plant and nurture a fall garden. Expect pictures of produce come September! So far this summer, my basil is the only thing I've been able to keep alive. What is your favorite veggie from a fall garden?

Jen, Yes! We're here. I think a rain barrel is going to be connected to our gutter system. Rain water is best for plants -- no treatments!
