Rain, rain, go away....

We were planning on going camping this weekend.
It' s raining.
And raining.
The forecast is for more rain and thundershowers.
It's going to break Ben's heart if we cancel, but it will be no fun for him (or Tim & I) if we go.

Oh well. Things are just the way they are. We'll try to find some fun things to do around town instead - maybe the Butterfly Conservatory, swim at the Rec. Centre...

Last weekend we had perfect weather. On Sunday we met some of Tim's family at his Mom's place for BBQ'd burgers.

We had fun watching Ben and his cousin Wesley play together. They found a monster squirt gun at the neighbour's place and couldn't resist filling it up. We got our own puny squirt gun (we use it to discourage the dogs from barking) and the game was on. It was the first time Ben had been "allowed" to point anything resembling a gun at another person. He caught on fast. In no time both he and Wesley were pretty soaked. :-)

Wesley was the perfect playmate. He kept exchanging Ben's empty gun for his full one, and kept pumping Ben's gun up for him:

Thanks, Wesley, for being so good with Ben. We really enjoyed watching you play!
For those who are wondering about Trudi, she's been doing fine every since that scare last week. I'm very grateful!

There is little chance that meteorologists can solve the mysteries of weather until they gain an understanding of the mutual attraction of rain and weekends.
