Vaca Day 1: I Laugh In the Face of Rain

The first day of vaca brought forth rain. And I said Rain Schmain. I laugh in the face of rain. Kinda. I mean I am still gonna use my umbrella to protect my camera and all. Amen.But I do realize how crazy we looked. I think it is official that we are at the stage in life in which we do not care what we look like....What do you think? Seriously, this made me laugh so hard I wet my pants. But then I just went in to the ocean so no one noticed. But the whole series of events reminded me of this.....And you can only imagine how Baby Twerp responded to the rain. Oh Lord have mercy on my soul. He is sugar. He will melt.
But this one?
And this one? The could care less. It is vaca...and you only live once.
But as you know, gray skies are gonna clear up...and someone put on a happy face.
Cause you see we are the kind of family that takes things in stride.
We just take it as it comes, usually. Until Day 2 came. Oh Lord and Heaven Help Us!

Looks like you made lemonade from the lemons:) I love that the kids are not complaining and whining. They are taking it in stride.

I mean, it didn't rain at all over Memorial Day weekend in Indiana. Helio Castrenevas won the Indy 500 and it was bright and warm and beautiful out all weekend.

I'm just sayin.
