The girls and I got caught in our first rainstorm today. It was downpouring and amazingly, these California girls were prepared (unlike Auntie Teddy!!! :-))! We had to walk 20 blocks, Lulu was riding in the stroller with the plastic rain cover on (and actually took a nap), my purse in her lap and Nessie was in the baby bjorn under the umbrella with me. I pushed the stroller with one arm and we were all good. It was pretty hilarious walking up and down the ramps of the sidewalks where all the water collects - I was up to my shins in water. Luckily I was wearing $2 shoes from Chinatown! All I know is that I never ever ever want to get caught in one of those rainstorms unprepared!
