Nature's Shower

I have many memories of running outside when the rain started to fall. In Southern Alberta, the rained poured a little less. So, we took advantage of it. I love rain. It brings down the humidity lurking in the air. It's very refreshing.

So, I was excited to see that my girls found as much joy running in the rain as I do. A booming thunder sent Elle up the stairs.
I was reminded of a time many of us Freeze children were outside (intentionally) in a hail storm. With a helmet and garbage bag made raincoat, I was running around the streets splashing in puddles. Then lighting struck too close. I saw it zap down from the sky and hit an electric post. Yikes! While running home as fast as I could, I thought...where is Laura? I hope she's ok! She was fine. I wonder if Elle was thinking of Bryn as she darted up the stairs. Probably...that's what sisters do.

The Art Off

Brandon was feeling very artistic in the Studio at the Pittsburgh Children's Museum. So he challenged BIL, Rob to an Art Off. After they bullied some little kids off the art easels, they painted their own pictures.
Essence of Ocean was born. The easel height adds a whole new dimension to the piece.
I don't have a final picture of Rob's masterpiece.

Blueberry Hill

Yesterday, we went to Soergels in Wexford. It was fantastic! The highlight was picking blueberries. The girls could have picked them forever. Wade...not so much. However, I forgot my camera, so I have no proof. Instead, here's some high class art.

Ouchy Ouchy

This is what happens when you ride a plastic green tractor down 6 cement stairs. It's not recommended.
