Dancing In The Rain


Yesterday it rained so hard again. We don't get a lot of weather in Los Angeles (unless you count 70 degrees and sunny as weather)...but here in Maine, we have been getting our fair share! Ginger is fascinated by the rain. Paprika wants to jump in the puddles and play outside even when it's pouring!

We spent the morning indoors just hanging out, and I got to sleep in (because I have been staying up too late, mostly taking care of Ginger, but also reading some books, which I hardly ever get to do at home!)


Mid-day we got out and went to The Stonyfield Cafe for lunch. Yum! It is a restaurant owned by the same people who own Stonyfield Farms (the yogurt), and it is so good and organic. I had to ask them if they have Coke (ha!), and of course they didn't and the waitress looked at me like I had two heads. So, I had iced tea. I am still working on letting go of Coke. One thing at a time, I guess.

After lunch we went to a children's consignment store and bought a bunch of stuff...I went a little crazy! I got lots of dresses for Ginger, and a dress for Paprika. All the dresses cost about $3/piece, so I felt justified! And Grandma Pat bought Paprika rain boots and a raincoat. She was so excited and had to wear those right away, of course!


After that Mr. Mustard and I went on a walk with Ginger while Paprika stayed home with Grandma and made lobster rolls for dinner. Everything was soooo wet from the rain, and we came back pretty soaked...but Ginger had a great nap in the Ergo while we walked.

Came home, had dinner, and watched Glee on Hulu. Ginger and Paprika even went to bed at a reasonable hour! Doesn't get any better than that! :-)

That was some rain this weekend wasn't it? Today is just beautiful though! Love the pic of the little one looking into the camera!
