My Kaelster is such a weather watcher. He recently learned about cumulonimbus clouds, and the way he says it leaves me grinning like a lunatic EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.
So yesterday, when the cold and wind and rain returned and things looked more like February than late April here in the Rockies, what was there to brighten my day? Big K and his declaration that he had spotted, "A big, humongous 'thimble-bo-nimbus' cloud!" I swear, those big impending clouds parted for a minute to let in the rays of sunshine that that little outburst invited.
And other little things we've been enjoying during our "spring preview" and subsequent return of winter...
Swings, Meet Ace...A bonafide member of the Little Rascal cast.
Washing Machine. Meet a billion pairs of shoes.
Mud has abounded and since we've been living outside, no shoe remained underutilized.
Dirt, Meet Dax. He loves you.
Amber, Meet the Gas Fireplace Vent. Who knew?
Kael, Meet John Stockton. And the preferred length of bball shorts. Just kidding. Just kidding.
World, take a glimpse into "the dare". It works every time.
And here we have a play date.
No really, I joined two of my handsome fellas for a morning at the play house to watch "The Cat in The Hat". I was terrified. They did great. These overachieving preschool teachers really know what they're doing.
Continuing on with our theme... My Thing One and Thing Two met the original Thing One and Thing Two and thought they were deliciously naughty from their balcony seats. Praise Jesus we survived up there without a single dismount attempt.
Everyone, we introduce to you the most fun game of all time... "Mommy make a big tower out of us"
Insert chorus of laughter. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME.
And there we have it. A review of all things nimbus and non-nimbus related.
