It's Raining, It's Pouring...

As you can probably imagine, it's pretty wet here in Mississippi. We've had some pretty impressive storms lately, and I have to say it's a VERY good thing that nobody in our family is upset by thunder or lightning. We've had some storms that had the windows and doors in our apartment rattling in their frames. 
We had one of these storms a few days ago, right as Ethan got home from school. Of course, being the sensible creature that he is, he grabbed the camera and headed right back outside into the middle of all the action. He got some great pictures so we could show everyone what a little drizzly Mississippi rain is like. A day or two later we all went out for a walk to get some pictures of what it looks like on a  non-rainy day so you could have something to compare it to. 
This is Ethan standing in the middle of the road with water up to his ankles.
The water drains off the road into this little ditch that runs along the back side of our apartment complex. 

Here we are walking along the little wall next to the ditch., headed away from the road you saw in the previous picture. 

Looking back up the ditch. 

After the ditch passes our apartment, it joins in with a bigger one that crosses through this culvert under the main road. 

It just doesn't look quite so cool on a dry day. 

Ethan and Erik checking out the ditch.
As our walk was coming to a close, we turned Erik loose and just let him decide where to go. He wanted to sit and stomp his feet on this staircase for a long time. He thought it was the funniest thing EVER.

Yes, he's WALKING! Nothing is safe anymore, this kid can go anywhere he wants, any time he wants, so watch out!
