For a some time now, I've been collecting bottle caps.
The kind from milk jugs and juice cartons.
And looking for rubber boots for the kids.
Finally, the weather warmed up, supper was early and we set about to make these boats to float on the little stream in our yard.
And then this started. Pouring rain.
You can't tell from the pictures, but it is teeming.
And warm. It's been awhile since it's been warm enough to play outside after supper without getting a chill.
And after a few rounds of "bounce the ball on the trampoline" this is what you look like.
Stay tuned for the great down stream bottle cap boat race!
Man, we need to get outside! Bring on the sunshine.
