Bubbles and Rain Showers

So we figured out that here in Tennessee when it rains it POURS!!!!! it is insane!! i have never seen rain like here. It is like someone is dumping a bucket of water above us. You walk outside and you are soaked in 5 seconds literally. so evie has figured out that when its raining and the wind is blowing the rain comes in on the balcony and makes a "shower" so every time it rains now she and lucas have to go out and have "rain showers" they have so much fun!!

also i broke the kids the news yesterday that we are not going to be able to go home for BJ and Renee's wedding :( i am so so upset and sad about this! i have been crying for days!  i knew the kids would take it pretty hard because we have been talking about it since we came out here and we were all looking so forward to it! so i went to walmart to get the kids each a little something to help soften the blow. they were still disappointed but the awesome little bubble blowers i got for them proved a nice distraction. they had a lot of fun with them yesterday! in fact they had so much fun that i have to run out and buy more bubbles today cause they used them all up yesterday. 
also yesterday we watched the movie "hotel for dogs". pretty cute little flick and evie loved it, but there is a really sad part and evie had her first real emotional movie experience! it was so cute! sad but cute! she was watching the movie and the sad part came on while i was on the phone with my mom. anyway i looked over and she had the funniest look on her face and i said "are you ok sweetie?" and she burst into tears and threw herself into my lap sobbing "its making me saaaaaad!!" i was laughing so hard, mean old mom that i am! it was so cute and she has never really had such an emotional connection to a movie before!! i was trying to explain what happened to my mom in between laughing and my wailing 5 year old, needless to say she couldn't really understand what i was trying to tell her the first few times i attempted. anyways thats about all i have to say at the moment.

so cute! I am laughing myself at the thought of Evie bawling over the movie! Aren't we heartless? I'm so sad about the fact that you can't come to the wedding. BOOOO!
