What to Do on a Rainy Day

The best thing to do on a rainy day is to put on an extremely cute rain outfit and go jumping in the puddles! I have wanted rainboots for Bailey for a really long time; I've been on the hunt but could never find a pair that I truly loved. Last week, Toni bought some adorable rain boots for Bailey. On Friday, I had to follow up and buy the matching rain jacket. With all of the rain today, it looks like we got the whole outfit just in time!

The first thing to do on a rainy day is to go outside and pose for cute pictures in the rain outfit (this is prerain of course):
This picture just proves that she is my daughter--it's the pose. I always took pictures of my sisters growing up and it usually involved a pose very similar to this.
The next thing to do on a rainy day, is walk down to the grove to pick tangerines with Uncle Ty. She loves going out to the grove to pick tangerines and she would probably stay there all day long just picking them off of the trees.

She's waiting for someone to come and join her.

She loves to pick and peel the tangerines, but she does not like to eat them.

Once the rain started coming down, we suited her up and sent her outside to play:
It was only after twenty minutes of playing in the rain, that we learned that her rain jacket isn't really, truly rain proof. Water was definitely leaking in through the seams, but it's way too cute to return.

I'm certain she would've stayed out here all day long and eventually floated down the river that runs along side my parents' driveway.

We ended the day with an adorable photo shoot at JC Penney's in her rain outfit. I'm allowed to buy her totally unnescessary outfits and then take her to get pictures in them because she's my first and right now my only :) The only downside of today is that she might think that all rainy days are this fun! Since it's supposed to rain all week, it could be a really fun week (especially on Friday because I have the day off).
