Chasing Rainbows

Papa Bob came up to visit us last weekend and we had a lot of fun. The weather was really being fickle. It was raining one moment and then sunny the next. That combined with the wind really made for a lot of indoor activities.

One late afternoon we were driving after the rain and there was a large rainbow overhead. We were admiring it and showing it to Daphne. Bob commented about how close the rainbow looked and we started joking about the pot of gold at the end of the rainbow and how it is impossible to catch the end. However, the rainbow was so strong and so close we could see the place where the rainbow met the earth. We were driving, and at every turn or bend the rainbow would follow us and surely with each turn it's end would change.

I have never experienced being able to see the end of a rainbow before, so it was a lot of fun. Daphne now knows what a rainbow looks like, and she's excited to point it out in her book from the library this week.
