Gotta Love Texas Rain.....

Wow, today was a wild one for weather, amidst the upper 80s we had today was down pouring hot rain.....I must say I love it.....it usually lasts 10-15 min and the Poof, blue skies, sunny and muggy....So during one of the rain storms we had a little bit of fun with some rainy day activities......The girls were begging me to get out the finger paints and so we did.....I am always amazed at how fast they do some activities....I think they were done finger painting in 10 minutes top.....So funny....but I must say Lila did well with her first finger painting experience....she only tried to eat the paint once......
Lila's big excitement today was that I moved her from her high chair to a booster seat at the table.....She LOVES it.....No more dumping food or spilling her milk all over the place.....it is nice....she even likes her snacks in her booster.....
Other then my work out early AM, walk around the 'hood with the kids, art projects and work.......we didn't do too much else.....Lila did try to help empty the dishwasher.....Yes, she is standing ON the dishwasher door.......
Mayday is finally out of the Vet Hospital..........He had one of his back legs removed on Friday and since Joel's place is 3 flights up they both will be staying with us for a week or two, living downstairs.......For those that didn't know Mayday has a type of bone cancer and this operation will alleviate 100% of his pain and hopefully help him live a few more years.....We are happy to have Mayday here recouping.....I mean who can resist this face......

Cute pics! I hope your towing Mayday around on your neighborhood walk ;). We had high winds with lightning & thunder on Monday...blew down some big limbs in our neighborhood. It's cool & raining today...we went from 110 in Lewiston on Sunday to a high of about 70 today.

Sweet Mayday. . . I hope she is feeling good. That rain sounds blissful, sometimes I miss the consistent rain of Seattle. I've been meaning to comment on the blog for a long time and I'm finally getting around to it and now I don't remember what I want to say. I hope Shawn's new job is going well and it sounds like you guys got a lot of stuff done around there while he was home. Looks great and I love all your decorating ideas! Have a great rest of your week!
