Play Outside? TODAY? But it's raining!

My one request for David this summer was that he prepare the back deck for winter. I foresaw a very active boy wanting to play with his outside toys, despite the fact that it is 40 degrees and raining outside. It involved him pressure washing the entire deck, and the roof above it, a bench, and his water table. It was no easy task. It took a good 4 hours.

You could not see sun through the roof before:

Now, it is always bright:

This was the finished product:

So today, when Carter asked if he could go outside and play, I gladly said "Yes, that's a great idea!". I don't think it got above 40 degrees F all day today, and it rained pretty hard. Boy was it nice to have a place Carter could play and get his energy out before we went to the library!!
