When life hands you rain, make rainonaide

Given that it’s May long weekend, we – like many people – had hoped to go for some outdoor fun in the sun at the beach. However, in keeping with our Narnia like eternal winter here, sun and warmth were replaced with rain and cold. Fun though can still be had. Especially if you’re a little kid and rain and puddles and mess and the simple joys of throwing stones and then hopping like you’re riding an imaginary unicorn down the rainbow of happiness is your thing. From what I was told, this is “hopscotch”. It reminds me far more of a scene from Monty Pythons Quest for the Holy Grail.

Lesson learned at the end of the day: Life is pretty much always what you make of it. This weekend we made rainonade.

    Ben – What a good post! Glad your holiday was fun even if it wasn’t what you had originally planned for. You are a good Dad! I bet your boys will remember hopscotch! L&P, Dad.
