I got one of the coolest birthday presents this year... a monsoon that created a legitimate lake across the street at the park. It was amazing! The Daynes brought out their water toys and we all had a blast playing in the rain water. Averi and I paddled out on the paddle board and went all the way around. She got off and swam next to the board most of the time. It REALLY made me wish we owned a lake front property :) What a blast!
This is the basketball court that is raised up much higher than the grass but is still covered with water:
Quite a few neighbors and their dogs came out to enjoy it as well.

Leter, we went to IHOP to get my free birthday breakfast. We were waiting outside for Doug to meet us there and Averi was getting mad at Kadence for copying every move she made.
Then that night we had the Daynes over for cake. They had a trip to Hawaii booked but couldn't leave because the freeways had to be shut down. They had to take a flight out the next day but we were glad because then they were able to celebrate with us!
The water stayed at the park for almost a week... draining little by little each day.
