Rained Out

We sent Braeden off to camp for the week. Praying for dry weather, as it was pouring when I dropped him off!

The girls have been particularly excited about all the goings-on to get Braeden packed. So they decided to go camping this morning. We spent a good lot of time arranging their backyard campsite just right. Sleeping bags laid flat and straight, blankets and pillows spread out, umbrellas perched.

I headed in to get my camera, and in the three seconds that passed before I got myself situated in the perfect picture-taking position, this happened...

Megan is shrieking with glee, while Abbey is turtled under her quilt. You will notice by Meg's flyaway hair (and the umbrellas that are no longer in place) that the wind picked up significantly. And the concrete - no, it's not normally this colour - it's WET. See those itty-bitty white balls on the ground and on Meg's purple blanket? Uh-huh. Hail. Fun times camping out!

Disclaimer: no children were harmed in the taking of this photo. Said children were promptly rushed into the house and instructed to spread their blankets wide for drying.
