Our Season -

For as long as I can remember, the Monsoon Season has been THE best season in the Valley of the Sun. Around this time of the year, we hit about 50% humidity and due to combinations of which I'm not very educated about ... we get rain! With any luck, we get great rain along with lightning, thunder, high winds and a lot of it. It seems to come through and clean the entire state. Everything smells so amazing and our favorite thing to do is hop in the car and drive around in the rain looking at tree branches that couldn't take the wind. Well the Monsoon is here! We got some awesome rain this week, and Kacey, Jake & Garrison didn't waste anytime indoors.


This is our backyard! The rain gave us a whole layer of water on top of our lawn. Everyone's grass looks so nice and green right now ... and we get to turn our sprinklers off!

A little bit of splashing and a whole lot of fun is what the Monsoons are all about. This is really my favorite season of the whole year. I would love to hear what everybody's favorite seasons are, but most of all I hope that whatever that season may be, you make the most of it before it passes.
