It's raining, it's pooring

Obviously, right. Well it was supposed to storm all morning and well it didn't. Which normally would make me really happy. Although I do like a good thunderstorm. But today was supposed to be Elijah's 8th birthday party. Since the forecast was calling for all sorts of rain & the party was going to be outside, I made the decision to cancel his party & postpone it until next Saturday. Not a drop of rain. All day! The poor child was so disappointed.
So I took him to the store to pick out a new pair of sunglasses that he has been begging me for. Styin' isn't he! Of course I also bought a pair for Seth! He has really been cracking my up lately with his poses.
We also had a special treat from the "Music" (ice cream) truck. We started calling it the music truck when the kids were little so that they wouldn't know what it really was & beg us for ice cream all the time. This is a very special treat since we really only let them buy once a year. This was Kate's first experience buying something from the music truck & she was a tad overwhelmed. Of course there is a little history with that too. She is currently obsessed with the music truck. It comes around our neighborhood at all hours of the day and into the night. She will cry big huge sobbing alligator tears if she hears one and doesn't get to see it. And then if mom or dad doesn't see it too, more tears. So you can imagine that we wanted to put off the discovery of the ice cream truck as long as possible. Because she is also obsessed with food. Always a story right.
