The rain started 5 minutes before the carols were due to start.
Many of the families packed up, scowling and chastising their kids for getting wet while cursing the weather.
I had a moment where I realized that I had a choice. I could choose to be all pissed off at making the trip and missing the show (it was cancelled due to safety issues)or I could choose to make the best of the situation and have fun anyway.
I chose the latter. And it was such a fun night, for all of us.
Even though the photos are only iPhone quality they captured the mood of our evening so well I decided to link up with Frogpondsrock Sunday Selections.
