Rain is a novelty here. The kids get excited when they look outside and see rain. They scramble to find umbrellas so they can hear the pitter patter above their head. I caught this moment between Hallie and Cannon after school. They were taking turns running down the walkway and returning without getting wet. Hallie with her sucker and Cannon’s eye longingly hoping for a lick of Hallie’s sucker!

The best part of this picture is the umbrella Cannon is holding. As you can imagine – not many people are buying umbrellas in Arizona. But we brought that umbrella with us from Wisconsin where umbrellas were a must. How it’s still functioning with the way it’s played with is beyond me. But this was Hallie’s special umbrella and she loved it – and the matching rain boots were just a bonus! Every time one of the boys pulls it out of the closet I picture this girl right here.
