Out In The Rain

The other day it was POURING outside! Tori and Jack always like to watch the rain as we sit there and talk about why the trees, flowers and grass need the water. It was still warm outside so we went out on the porch to watch it fall. They were so surpised when Rick went and stood out in the rain, they thought it was SO funny! So, of course, they followed him out there and had so much fun running and jumping in all the puddles! It's so sweet to watch them enjoy the simple things in life and the smiles on their faces while they were playing were contagious! It made me think about how I need to take the time to enjoy the simple little blessings God puts in my life everyday. Don't be so caught up in all the "big important moments" that we forget about the simple ones that can bring so much more joy!

Remember to stop and enjoy the simple things today...like the beautiful flowers outside, the sunset tonight, the way your kids climb on top of you just to sit with you, a good conversation with a friend or loved one, the list could go on forever.
Don't forget to Make It Matter!!!


  1. Julie, that is so precious! You have such gorgeous children!

  2. SO CUTE! I remember doing this as a child. Great pictures! Way to capture such special memories Julie!

  3. great pictures, and a good reminder too :) Things are seen so differently through the eyes of a child, we could strive to be more like them in some ways :)
