Monsoon!!

Monsoon season in the Capital isn't as exciting as in other places in our country, but even so, we get excited about rain. We rarely get rain, so when it's monsoon season it's different and exciting :)
I messed up these pictures a little and didn't have time to go back and change them, so you'll just have to see these :) Aashini LOVED the rain! She had tons of fun playing out in the rain on our balcony with her umbrella (we don't really play with the puddles on the street... you can't be sure what is in those... sewers tend to overflow in rainy season.... so playing in the puddles on our balcony is perfect!).
She thought it was awesome!
Since it doesn't rain here very much, the city isn't set up to handle a lot of rain, so when it rains the roads get a little crazy!
One day we went to the mall when it was raining! We thought we weren't going to make it in!
Monsoon is fun and keeps life even more interesting :)

How long does it last? Hope it's helping with the temperatures!

Whoa! I don't remember it being that rainy!
And I love it that Aashini is still wearing that skirt that we bought together. Hazel still loves hers, too!

It doesn't last long in our city - in some areas it lasts 2-3 months. We usually have two weeks of rain... one week with a few week gap and then another week with little rains dispersed inbetween :)

Emily - Aash really LOVES her skirt :) it's funny to me that she wore it when she was Diya's age :)

I like her little umbrella. I hope the monsoon didn't do much damage in the city.
