the weather in raleigh was crazy on wednesday! one minute we were having a torrential downpour and then all of a sudden the sun popped out and the temperature shot up to 70 degrees. And then as quickly as the sun came out, a line of severe thunderstorms and tornados began. since it had been raining all morning it meant that we had been stuck inside – our least favorite thing. so we took advantage of our brief dry period and headed straight out the door! my parents live on a cul-de-sac in a small subdivision so it’s the perfect spots for the twins to run around and get some energy out.

and seriously is there anything more fun as a kid than jumping in puddles?! they were soaking wet and covered head to toe in dirty water, but oh my did they have a blast!  {side note: about 0.2 seconds before b hit the puddle i snatched my phone out of his hand – #momwin}
