I LOVE days like this!

Today is raining and it is wonderful out!  Since we live in Arizona and do not get too much rain, we take every opportunity we can to fully enjoy it.  Today we all went out to play in the rain.  For the first time, Madi wanted to play in the rain too, but did not want me to hold her, which brought on an interesting question; Is it ok for Madi's wheelchair to get soaking wet?  I don't mind letter her crawl as long as her legs are covered, but we do not have any grass and the ground is pretty hard.  What to do, what to do.  I decided to grab the old wheelchair and let her go.  She loved it!  She kept pulling off her jacket hood so her head would get wet.  I'm still not how well the wheelchair will take the rain, but I suppose we will soon find out!  What fun is life if you cannot play in the rain???

(Playing in the rain reminded me of one of my favorite quotes....)

Absolutely fine for the chair to get wet, don't worry. You can get various capes designed to work with a chair to keep dry, I have a couple. Might need to watch for abrasion from rubbing on wet bits of upholstery but it'll dry pretty quick.
