playing outside

I am going to go out on a limb here and say ...

This is probably not everyone's idea of playing outside.

But after months and months of rain (with only occasion days of sunshine), we have resorted to playing - inside a tent set up in the backyard - while it is pouring rain.

Yep, that's Natalie and her Little People and Princesses and wooden blocks and babies ... and whatever else she's talking me into bringing out to her ... all playing under the cover of a tent (which is about 16 years old). All the while the rain beats against the tarp draped over the top.  And it's cold, but she doesn't seem to notice or care. 

Killing time until baby sister wakes up from her nap ... when we will all venture out in the pouring rain to get a week's worth of groceries!  Good times, people, good times!

I have no car, it's been in the shop since Thursday, and no yard, until we move next month, trying to occupy a 1 year old and 4 year old. I need to get a weeks worth of groceries, that'll have to wait until I get my car back, hopefully tomorrow. My house is cluttered with toys and the pizza has taken over an hour! OK mommy rant over haha. Great idea with the tent. Any ideas for me?? Going bit crazy if you couldn't tell haha

Oh rain is the worst. I think that is a great way to get out of the house though!
