Enough already!

I'm certainly intelligent enough to know how important it is to have rain, but ENOUGH already!! I'm so sick of the rain. There's actually been talk around town of joining together to build an ark. Seriously, it is so hard to imagine that this time last year we were in the middle of a horrible drought. Could not even water the lawns or wash the cars. I guess it's all or nothing here in Atlanta!

I also feel the need to blame the rain for Clemson's loss today. First half of the game, no rain... we're winning, playing well. Second half, the skies open up to torrential downpours and well, we lost the game.

And of course, I'm still trying to get the smell out of my basement from the flooding it endured last week during the Great Atlanta Flood of 2009, but I certainly shall not complain after seeing those homes that were basically underwater.

Okay, so I complained a little....

RIPKEN is 3!!





























































We had Ripken's third birthday party at a neat little place called "Imaginations at Play". What fun! He and his friends had such a good time. It took my shy little fellow a while to warm up and get use to everything, but once he actually started playing, he had a ball. You'd never imagine that he is the fourth child! I really thought he'd be my wild child who wasn't afraid of anything, but he's actually the most timid of the bunch! Doesn't like being the center of the attention either; in fact, he cried when we all gathered around to sing "Happy Birthday" and wouldn't even consider blowing the candles out! His brother, River, gladly did it for him. Anyway, just wanted to include a few pictures of my now "three year old" at his party.
