This was across the street from our house - am I'm the one sitting down. It rained for 2 hours, HARD, and thank goodness we had a sump pump system in our basement...so it didn't flood it. We had about 4 inches standing water in our backyard and the kiddy pool had been empty previously, but after the rain, it was completely full. That's how much it poured. The kids had a heyday playing in it. (I know it's blurry, but it was trying to focus through all the rain!)
Apparently the picture here previously was too obscene for some, so I took it out! Are you happy now people?
I could write a lot about this day, but I'll just make it short. IT WAS HOT!!! Hotter than I have EVER been in my life. Seriously. This was at the Dayton Air Show where we met up with a couple of my cousins and their families and my aunt and uncle. It was a fun reunion and they got to stay at our house for a couple of days. Yeah!
The Air Show was so cool. We saw lots of neat stuff. Our favorites were of course the Thunderbirds (like the Blue Angels). They had a great Tora, Tora, Tora reenactment, we saw the B-one and B-2 bombers - along with a bunch of other sweet airplane shows.
The next couple of pics are from a city parks program that we went to today. It was all about bugs and to top it off we got to ride on a tram all around the park.
The determined bug catchers.
We caught one butterfly with the net, and then later Owen surprised me by catching a little baby toad all on his own. No pic, bummer.
