God didn't promise days without pain, laughter without sorrow, sun without rain, but He did promise strength for the day, comfort for the tears and light for the way. - Anon

Thomas Was Back in Town
I say "was" because that was soooo last month. I mean a week is a long time if you are 4 and still asking if you can go again. You just don't get why you can't ride Thomas everyday.
I'd like to say that we all had a good time but that wouldn't really be true. It was too cold, too windy and when the clouds kept threatening to spit on us, us parents decided it was time to go home.
And yes, that is snow on the mountaintop and yes it had snowed that morning. This past May was one of the wettest on record in over 100 years. Thing is . . . by now the snow pack has usually melted away and the danger of any flooding is minimal, but this year . . . well this year there is more snow pack still on the mountains waiting to come down then there has been since 1983 when the city turned State Street into a river to deal with all the excess runoff and with all the added rain our waterways are already overflowing. Get out your rain boots, 'cuz the floods a comin' people. I will say though that so far we have been blessed with cooler temperatures which has helped slow the flow, so to speak.
This wacky weather has my closet confused, one day I'm pulling out a sweater and boots and the next day capris and flip flops.
The best part was that we got to meet up with friends. And I did get some cute pictures of the boys.
