A Little Bit of Rain Never Hurt Anyone

What is it about children and water? If there is a puddle, it must be jumped in, if there is rain, it must be run in; it's like they are magnetized to the stuff. Although I must admit that there is something enticing about a romp in the rain (in the absence of lighting and thunder mind you).
London is no exception and last weekend we enjoyed several hours in the rain at James' company picnic-----London might as well have been in heaven.

The child never stops moving, as you can tell.

Then there was the unfortunate pony incident...

James snapped the picture just as the unfortunate incident was taking place. London was happily feeding the cute little pony and I was about two seconds to slow in showing her the proper way to feed ponies, to avoid a sharp nip, which she unfortunately experienced.
If you want to cure your daughters obsession with ponies this will do it.

I don't think we ever really grow out of that "playing in the rain" stage. Case in point: Last Tuesday (after Taylor had taken the first part of the bar exam), I came home to find him running around the porch and the driveway. Doing what, you may ask? Of course, playing in the rain! (Though there was a great deal of lightning, so I made him go inside.) Yes, I'm sure that was a form of stress relief, but all I'm saying is not to count on any of the Bairds growing out of that any time soon ;)

That makes the statistic about men being 10X more likely to be struck by lightning more understandable.
