Yesterday, we received over an 1.5 inches of rain. (most likely over 2 inches) The weather was a welcome change from the freezing temperatures we've had recently. Here are a few pictures from after the storm:
About an inch of water covered most of the front yard!
The walk next to the water garden was flooded also.
My Lego diver was equally amazed with the amount of water covering the yard!
A Recipe from Elijah!
Our family has enjoyed an abundance of fruit from friends and neighbors. We have been given several bags--enough to make several pitchers of juice. Elijah recently made "Fruit Soda" from a recipe he found:
Fruit Soda (a.k.a Citrus Punch)
1/3 Gallon pitcher
1 and 1/2 c. sugar
1 pouch lemon-lime flavored unsweetened soft-drink powder. (Unsweetened Kool-aid)
23 and 1/3 oz. Pineapple Juice
1 Liter ginger-ale
In a gallon sized (or larger) pitcher, stir together sugar and water until dissolved. Mix in drink powder and pineapple juice. Store in freezer until it becomes partially frozen. (Like a slushy) Enjoy!
