It rainbowed on our picnic

ItRainbowedOnOurPicnic1.jpgWell, it wasn't really a picnic, just dinner on the deck, which is where we eat most nights, but it did rainbow on us - twice.  We were sitting there having a relaxing dinner and out of nowhere - wham! - a rainbow.  And then, as if one wasn't enough, there was suddenly a second one, much lighter than the first, but just as much a rainbow if you please.  Calvin was probably a mixture of bewilderedItRainbowedOnOurPicnic2.jpg and excited, and after it faded, and for the rest of the night, we were privy to his continual chorus of "rainbow all gone."  It's kind of hard to explain wonder and majesty to someone who is yet innocent enough to see the whole world as wonder and majesty and who has not yet been disillusioned by reality, but we'd take innocence over disillusionment any day.

You were favored with the doubly lucky double rainbow--one brighter and one lighter. As Jon would (and did) say at 2 years old: "be-oof-ti-al"
