Singing in the Monsoon

"I'm Singing in the Rain, I'm Singing in the Rain! What a Glorious Feeling, I'm Happy AGAIN!"

(You can thank me later for having that song in your head for the rest of the day)

July. It's July. We live in a dry climate. Not a place where monsoons are present. EVER.

We had planned for friends to join us for a BBQ at the Tiki Bar, a fire in the pit, and an overall night of relaxation. Until we moved to the Rain Forest and we were stranded beneath the patio cover - which I'm not complaining, I LOVE our patio cover, I just wanted to enjoy it on another night!

At any rate, when life gives you lemons, you...err...well, I guess you just deal with it and have a good time anyway!

When you fill a bucket list like this, it just wouldn't be completely fufilled unless EVERYONE did it. (Luke was out. He wanted nothing to do with it) And since Ted sat in the gutters with the boys, I jumped on the trampoline in the rain with the kids.

Of course, when you have 6 adults, and 5 kids in the house with it pouring down rain, shenanigans are gonna happen.

My stash of paint supplies was found, along with BINGO dobbers. Oi Vey. My only wish is that they found the permanent paint. That'll teach 'em.

Luke elected to go the more eclectic route in his costume get-up, while holding our new hamster, Snowball.

So if I were to rate this adventure on the Bucket List Richter Scale, I'm not really sure where it would land. Let's say it lands somewhere between the numbers of 12 and 1098.
