Gloomy, Rainy Memorial Day Weekend

We didn't end up doing much at all this Memorial Day weekend. The weather was quite terrible and it's been raining and raining for what feels like an eternity. The sun has been out between clouds but it's been rare and brief. I had wanted to take the kids to the carnival run by the firehouse but the weather just didn't cooperate. We had also intended to take the kids out to a nearby park/playground and go canoeing but again, weather. Hopefully we'll get a break from all this gloomy rainy weather soon so that we can start having some fun outside.

We were able to get some errands done and some MORE plants in the ground and Tony did do the obligatory grilling out, but mostly we just kept each other company and did things between rainstorms.

That said, the kids didn't care how cold or rainy it was, they were bound and determined to get in the pool when it opened on Saturday. I thought they'd change their minds once they saw how yucky it was outside, but they didn't and off we went (between rainstorms). We didn't go right when the pool opened and when we were there no one else was. I looked in the book though and there had been some other crazy brave people there earlier.

I had to force them out of the pool after about 40 minutes because it was beginning to rain again. They didn't want to leave even though their little bodies were shaking uncontrollably and their teeth were chattering so hard they could hardly talk. 

Tony and I got them back just before a big storm rolled in and gave them each a warm bath and then we settled in for dinner and a movie. We aren't going to let a little rain dampen our weekend!
