How Long Since You Played in the Rain???

As kids, we would be delighted by the sound and look of the falling rain outside our window... We would then run out, clothes and all, and enjoy getting soaked in the cool falling raindrops, making mud puddles here and there... Wouldn't it be great to relive the feeling of being a child all over again? It would be a great feeling to let the child in us break free again... How long has it been since you played in the rain?

I used to LOVE rain as a kid!!! But now I can't stand it. As a kid, I didn't have to worry about how bad the traffic would be, how windy the roads would be, and I certainly didn't have to worry about my hair frizzing out when the rain touches it (straightened hair usually goes like that) and I didn't have to worry about makeup running off my face. I also didn't have to worry about catching a cold, as sometimes you do outside, and having to take off work, and thus losing money. Ahh..being a child. The good old days!

Hahahaha... it's so easy to forget childhood memories... Sometimes, being a grown up takes away all the simplicity of life... Being an adult makes us into the "don't-have-time-for-fun" person that would never have had occurred to us if while we were kids... I hope we can take time to be kids some time! :)

I played in the rain a month ago i think with my daughter.I don't get my age be the reason not to have fun like kids.I like my daughter have all the memory of me as a fun and loving mother.Sometimes we played hide and seek together.But when it rains she is really excited because she knows what to do first she would help me clean the car and then after cleaning we would play in the rain just the two of us.

Hi, when i was just a little child i can remember most of the time i play in the rain especially when vacation and no classes.I enjoys it with some of my friends as we are running around and playing some games while under the rain.When i grew up of course things changed but as long as i can remember the last time i played in the rain is just few months ago.My kids want to take their bath under the rain then joined them.Now,its raining here my kids are waiting for it so they can already go outside and play.

It was a long time since the last time I played in the rain. I was in high school that time that's what I remember. We we're all playing with mud under the rain. It was the last day of friendship camping, and so it was time to get dirty before going home. The officers gave us the directions where the obstacles are so we followed the trail. At the end we saw it was a muddy pit, we have to dive in that mud pit, climb on a rope, and swim on the river. It was raining and it was do fun!

wow, i don't even remember when that was! I remember I enjoyed doing that as a kid also. I remember that when a strong monsoon comes, bringing heavy rain, i would already hear people going outside the house for a splash... i remember my friends and i would meet up at an empty parking lot and share stories while the rain splatters around us...

Today I got to ride my bike through the freezing rain to get to the gym. Does that count? I kind of enjoyed it. Especially on the way home because I was all hot and sweaty anyway. If I had privacy at my house and in my yard I would do all sorts of silly things like playing in the rain. I'd be too self-conscious to do it now though.

Hahaha... Although I'd say that event was purely accidental, I guess that counts! :) I'd love to do lots of silly things, too... Only, my mother would scold me... hehehehe...!

I haven't played in the rain since I was a kid. it was one of my favorite things to do. I didn't care if i got wet. it was just fun to play in the rain and jump in the puddles. A rain coat and boots were not a must for this fun.

I used to love playing in the rain when I was a kid. I don’t even remember when was the last time I played in the rain. Maybe 15years ago…Now I just love watching kids in the neighborhood playing in the rain it totally reminds me of my childhood.

I can't remember the last time I did that. Probably when I was ten and that was way years back. I wonder what people would say if they saw me doing that now? Probably thinking how insane I would be But playing in the rain was the best. I so wish I could do that again. Maybe when nobody's watching...

few weeks ago i did but not really played. just stayed under the rain for a couple of minutes and took a shower.. before that, i guess it's been years.. decade most likely. i love it when it's raining. it's like one of the best time lying on your bed while raining.

I last played in the rain last week!.. I'm from work and it just rained. i want to go home so instead of riding, i walked and make my moment with the rain a fun one. Upon reaching our house I didn't go in directly, I stayed at our garden and there I played a lot with the rain. Seems like I went back to being a child that day. The rain didn't just caused me fun, it also relieved me from stress of my work.

I think we must play in the rain always. Because is such a pure thing. Is something that always will remain in our hearts.

I havent played in the rain since I was probably 11 or younger. I used to love to play in the rain when I was a kid. I have only let my 6 year old daughter play in the rain twice I think. Only for the fact that it seems like everytime it rains it has lightning that goes with it. My 3 year old son loves jumping in mud puddles and I hate when he does it lol.
