Did you know that we live in one of the driest regions in the UK? Don't get me wrong...it rains...often...but usually it is so light and short lived that I don't get out the umbrella (for the first few months we lived here, I was the dork who opened my umbrella for every sprinkle). In fact, I didn't buy Parker one until yesterday...it was necessary. We got caught in a downpour while we were walking home so we decided to wait it out in the mall. I bought P an umbrella and figured we wouldn't even need it once we left again. However, about two seconds after I took the pictures below, it started pouring again. We were getting wet anyway, so P and I decided to purposely walk through and splash in every puddle along the way. I have never had so much fun walking home!
