The one where the sun came out and we were glad to be alive

Spring break pretty much broke us.
 What with the raining and the flooding and the record-breaking
drench of it all.
 But today we took our barefoot selves down to the still-swollen creekside.
 And we ran through the damp grass in our Easter duds.
(Were you aware boys don't have "outfits?" Me neither.
Alas, after four girls, I am informed of this important gender difference.)
 We climbed the apple trees.
And sat down to soak up some sun.
 Because today, for just today, the sun came out in Oregon.
To remind us of the fleeting nature of any grey mood I suppose.
