"It's raining, Mom, I'm bored. There's nothing to do!"

"Let's play hide and go seek. First, I need to put on my sports bra," says Mom. Game on, boys!! To add suspense to the game, it was storming out which made the house dark and eerie. We had two, you cannot turn on the lights and two, you couldn't change hiding spots. The basement and garage were off limits. Talk about fun...

Matthew had a great hiding spot and it took us a long time to find him. The below picture is me on the bed and they never did find me. They gave up first. I was so proud of myself. I kick butt in hide and seek.

I may not be the best mom in the world, but today I felt like I was. We had so much fun.

For dinner, I taught Ben how to make spaghetti and meatballs. Again, felt like a great mom. He did spectacular. Dinner was delicious. He was so proud of himself. I was so proud of him.

Awesome day...and it rained the whole time. We were planning on going to Soak City and I'm kind of glad we didn't.

You are an awesome mom!

By the looks of things i guess Valley Beach is done for the year
as well! WOW have you seen over there?
I guess it looks like the flood of last year that we missed part of due to being on vacation in Florida! ahhh to be there now!
I don't mind a good storm or dark dreary days from time to time, but this rain turning to flooding is CRAZY! I had to run to IGA this morning and almost lost my flip flop as it was as deep as my calf and that was this morning! LOL! What a great day for grocery shopping I then ventured to Meyers!
And now I am TRYING to get some cleaning done as I want to relax some eventually! kids gotta get creative as my Cable has been messed up and now they are coming on Wednesday to fix it! 3 kids rained in, no TV and no computer for alot of today, lol! good for em!
They are surviving! Maybe tomorrow I will get them cooking! Good idea!

You are the best mom.. how much fun is that..
This rain has been fine by me.. my 3 older kids are gone and the baby and I are sick, could do without being sick but atleast I don't feel like i"m missing out on the last week or summer.

What fun! I think tomorrow, I'll send Jackson to my work and I'll stay at your house and play hide and seek! :)

That sounds good to me, Alex...too funny! I think I might have them go through an obstacle course tomorrow, if it's yucky out. I think it's supposed to rain AGAIN tomorrow.
