Love is… sheltering your daddy as it starts to rain.

Arddun has been dying to use her umbrella in the proper way – that is, in the rain. We’ve been having scorching weather for a week now, and Arddun’s Thomas the Tank Engine umbrella has had a couple of excursions in the open to shield its owner from the blinding sun.

But this evening, the relentless heat broke. The clouds rolled, the thunder rumbled grudgingly in the distance, and Arddun celebrated EVERY ONE of those grumbles with a spirited rendition of I Hear Thunder.

And she got to use her umbrella, just as it started to spit. Praise God.
