Thunder Rolls!

All I can think of is Garth Brooks song, "Thunder Rolls" right now. In the past week we have had some really great lightning and thunder storms. It is very unusual here in Seattle for that to happen. I think I have heard more thunder in the past 24 hours than I have heard combined in the Seattle area since I moved here 13 1/2 years ago. I was in heaven this morning. I just lay in my bed and listened to the rain falling and the thunder booming. I loved it! None of the boys were scared, but Joseph was really mad because he really hates the rain.(not my child!) (he prefers sun and heat~again~not my child!)

Anyway, I guess I mostly just wanted to document it so that I can have a reference for the future. I remember being a little girl in Idaho and praying that our house wouldn't get hit by the lightning, but then loving the storm. The best storms were when we lived in St. Louis. I had a window seat in my room and I would snuggle up on the window seat and just watch the rain fall and listen to the thunder. Travis's favorite is when we went to Virginia. It had been sooo hot one day and then this tremendous thunder storm rolls in that night. We sat out on the porch of mom and dad's fancy Civil War house and watched the light show and felt the rain. Good times. It was nice to be reminded of them today. Plus, now the ground will be nice and wet for all the fireworks tomorrow. (o:

So, here's to hoping for a nice 4th of July for us and for everyone else.

Happy 4th of July!!!!!!
