spring storms

Spring weather here in Texas freaks me out. Most people I know love storms and thunder and lightening. I am such a scaredy cat especially when it comes to wind and tornadoes.  

Every single day this week we have had some form of severe weather.  Two weekends ago our fence blew over.  This past weekend our next door neighbor's tree broke in half. Seriously, I am so afraid when the wind picks up.  Sunday night it hailed at 3am and it was so stinkin' loud. But it passed so quickly.  Monday afternoon the wind picked up and I flipped on the TV to a local channel.  Sure enough severe weather was all upon us.  Luckily all the damaging wind passed over us and we just got a good soaking rain.  

It was awesome because we need the rain!

Hayden wanted to play in the puddles so bad!  He has had a stuffy nose, so I was a bit worried about letting him play in the water.  It is still April, and I think it is still a bit to cold for water play. 

 But I caved.  Hayden and Bogey had a great time.  

Bogey was so frisky.  I laughed so hard at these two boys.  
 They were chasing one another splashing like crazy!

Look at Bogey jumping in this picture.  Hayden is flinching.
They never once ran into each other though.  It was funny to watch! 
 Every time there was a near miss I gasped.

Layla was at gymnastics, but she got to play and splash when she got home.  

I'm not sure why, but she decided to roll in the mud puddles. 

Thankfully this is an old outside play dress.  I don't think it will ever be the same...haha!

I think she is doing push-ups!  Bless her heart, by the time she got home most of the water had dried.

Even though the kids were nasty, dirty and covered in mud and grass, they had a fun time.  I'm glad we could enjoy a part of the spring storms that usually leave me scared!

It is crazy that you guys are having so much scary weather! I hope it calms down for you!

I don't like the lightening at all but the rain & thunder is ok. I woke up to it at 4:45 this morning. We really needed it.
