the rain don't get us down

my wish for snow has been thwarted by what appears to be the arrival of early spring.

in vancouver, this means steady and unrelenting rainfall. like full on dark and stormy days. and when it’s not dark and stormy, it’s misting steadily. and when it's not misting steadily, it's all cloud, with no silver lining in sight.

it can all get pretty depressing.

but we choose to rage against the dreary, we do. 

we dress the kids in super-warm clothing. we throw them both in our best stroller. and we prepare to get really, really wet.

 if only to run a few errands.

like buy an umbrella.

because there isn't any point in all four of us bouncing off the walls together on a rainy day.


  1. that just sounds like typical vancouver winter to me. if you start expecting the Arc, you know it's mid-winter in vancouver! LOL. And, yes, if you wait for the rain to stop before you go outside then you never will. Love to you all.

    1. more rain than i remember though. but so true. we just gotta brave it and get out there and make sure there's soup waiting for us when we get home. or something.

      love and miss you all like crazy.
