:: Summer Storms ::

Living in Santa Cruz, CA has it's perks - our little place is just two blocks from the ocean and a three minute drive to the redwoods. We have quite moderate weather all year. If and when it rains here, we have fair warning and it is typically cold and dreary all day long.

One of the {many} perks of spending a few weeks nestled in the middle of the Austrian Alps while on vacation, was the quickly changing weather. Most days the weather was amazing - beautiful clear skies, warm sun, and a slight breeze. A few times, this fantastic weather was interrupted by a quick summer storm. The dark clouds would quickly roll in, release all of their contents in warm torrents and move along to the next region.

While the adults may have preferred to stay dry...
...the kids LOVED playing and running in the rain! Analise and Ana stood in the rain, ran in the rain, and danced in the rain.
They sure are cute when they are waterlogged!And this guy...

Well...let's just say that...

Remember when there was a huge puddle on the lawn at Capernwray? Maybe that was the semester after you left. Well, skim boarding ensued until it was broken up by the gardner... I can't remember who it was at that time. It was the big kids version of puddle stomping and it was awesome. More people should stomp puddles. :)
