Summer=Monsoon

July and August in the dessert are monsoon season.  This is when we get the majority of our rainfall.  The late afternoon storms can be pretty spectacular.  They are often accompanied with major wind, lightning, and thunder.  Today we had a mid afternoon storm that just came out of nowhere.  The sun was shining, but all of a sudden there were big fat rain drops falling from the sky.  Both of the kids decided that being indoors was just not the place to be during this rare occurrence. So we headed out and they danced and played in the rain.



Check out our drowned little rats!=)
