Remember to Play in the Rain

Do you remember, as a kid, how much you loved playing in the rain?  Ominous gray clouds, thunder, lightening, and rain… “Bring it on!”, I say.  I’ve always loved rainy weather.

During my childhood summers, playing in the rushing gutters filled with rainwater, during lovely warm weather, was a seriously good time.

It’s been terribly, dangerously dry here in Western Colorado this year.  So we just had to get out and do a little Happy Rain Dance the other day when we finally got some moisture!

So what if it drizzles

And dribbles and drips?

I’ll splash in the garden,

I’ll dance on the roof.

Let it rain on my skin,

It can’t get in –

I’m waterproof

Playing in the Rain

Do you let your kids play outside when it rains?  Better yet, do you join them?

That raincoat is a Kids Patagonia Torrentshell Raincoat.  We love it and got it from a kids gear shop called Tiny Trekker (I believe right now it’s 30% off).

    Fun Post!!

  2. When we finally started getting some rain last week, we didn’t necessarily go out and play in it, but we did spend lots of time sitting on the front porch and enjoying watching the rain fall!

      Aaahh… a front porch sounds like a lovely place enjoy the rain! Even the sound of it makes me happy.

  3. We love playing in the rain! It does make you feel like a kid again!

      Yaaay, fellow a Fellow Grown-up Rain Player! 😉 I totally agree, Tiffany…

      Thanks for your comment and dropping by!

  4. Well I’m kind of there with you. I grew up in the Pacific Northwest, so if you want to go outside, you really have no choice but to go in the rain. The thrill of it wears off after a few years though. So nice to see pictures of people actually enjoying it.

      Hmmm…. interesting. I’ve always loved Seattle, but that was my biggest fear, in fact! That the weather there may slowly take away my love of rain.

  5. I’m more of a puddle jumper myself 😉

  6. You bet we do! Mud puddles. Worms. Rushing water. Diverting puddles. We’re in it! 😀

    • COMtnMom says:

      Awww… you’re so right! So much fun to be had 🙂 What’s not to love about getting muddy & wet?

      (Oh, that’s right – I did think of one thing not to love about it … getting the kids from the front door to the bathtub w/out a big slimy trail – ha ha)
