The Monday Snapshot – April Showers Bring May Flowers

Yesterday afternoon it started raining again, and Stella begged to put on her boots so she could go splash in the puddles. Harvey followed shortly behind. 🙂 They ended up playing with the sand in the horse shoe pits – WHILE it continued to rain on them. They didn’t seem to mind!


Just after they came back inside, we looked outside to see a gorgeous double rainbow (which are oddly fairly common out here for some reason). I went out front to get a picture and realized that it looked like the pot of gold was in OUR back yard. I’m pretty sure that’s our kids. <3

    Wow – so beautiful! Colorado is one of my family’s vacation spots and we try to get out there at least every 2 years or so. And you’re right, it’s not at all unusual to see double-rainbows like that. Something about the atmosphere and moisture as it rises over the mountains or something (someone explained it to me once but I forget exactly). Love it!

  2. Perfect! If you could go back in time and share this photo with your former heartbroken self and give a hug. 🙂

    I’ve never seen a rainbow so vivid.

  4. I have only seen one double rainbow in my life, and it was just a few months ago. It was incredible – it was actually a double double – I could see two full rainbows at two different levels. Of course by the time I got the camera out it was too late 🙁 SO cool that you get to see them all the time, and how neat that the pot of gold was at your house!!!

  5. That is a gorgeous picture! Whenever I see a rainbow, I think it’s a sign from my mom. 🙂 I’m sad to say I haven’t seen one in quite a while though…

  6. Ethan is totally confused by rain, we just don’t get enough so it is new to him every time it rains! Glad your kids enjoy it.
