Singing and Dancing in the Rain



The past couple of days have been rainy and dreary which has not been conducive to Elin’s love of being outdoors.

Yesterday evening the rain finally subsided and there was a brief period of sunshine and rainbows. Elin took full advantage and went outside to splash in the puddles and dance around. I think she would sleep outside if we let her. It amazes me how much she loves being outside. If Elin is getting upset or crying I can always  say, “Do you want to go outside?” and I can usually get her to perk up.


I love these pictures that capture Elin in her happy dance sequence.


Check out this awesome rainbow. I think Elin was truly mystified that she suddenly saw a band of colors in the sky!


I hope I always remember how absolutely joyous she is when she is outside and exploring the world.  The sounds of birds and the sight of flowers is purely magical to her right now.


Check out these dance moves in a gif!
