Rainstorms & 10 Years

Since moving here to Pocatello we have had three flash flood warnings.
Two of which have been the last two days.
This is crazy people.
Well if you know us at all, we can't let a good rainstorm go to waste.
Miles would be so disappointed if we did.
So I grabbed the girls jackets and boots and we went out.
After all the torrential down pour was over of course. Safety first.
We went knocking on all the neighborhood kids doors that we knew
 to see if they wanted to join in on the fun.
This is in the grass on the side of our house.
Seriously....look at how deep that is.

Clara was enamored by how much water was gushing out of the downspout.

This was the parking lot just behind our house.
It was more like a swimming pool. Seriously.

Clara kept sitting in it like it was a wading pool.
She was soaked from head to toe.
Literally, her poor feet were purple at the end.

The girls had a blast.
We all had a blast. 
I wouldn't lie if I said I didn't get in and have some fun myself.
There's nothing like a good rainstorm and the way it makes you feel inside.
It's been a good couple days.

On another note: 
Today Mark and I are celebrating 10 years of marriage.
I can't believe it's been 10 years. 
Where has time gone?
We have been through some amazing ups and some seriously low lows.
Sometimes I feel like we have gone through more than some will ever go through in their lifetime.
Yet in 10 short years we have experienced so much.
Unfortunately I know we don't get a hall pass from future trials and pain.
Even though I think we deserve one now!!!
But I do know that if we have made it this long and this strong we are bound to make it through whatever life brings our way.
We are blessed with three amazing, beautiful children with only more to come (not yet people, not yet).
We have so much love and happiness around us.
We are lucky to have each other!!!
Here's to eternity.
