Next, We'll Show Him a Unicorn

We had just been greeted by an impressive rain, which had passed over nearly as fast as it had arrived, leaving the sun shining brilliantly to our west. 

Looking up and seeing the heavy mist trickle down in front of the sunshine, and smiling almost as brightly, Mrs. LIAYF announced "Quick Lukas, let's go out front.  I think I have something to show you."

And sure enough, there it was.  His first rainbow. A bit hard to tell here, but it was actually a double.

 

We had recently asked him if he had ever actually seen one, which he hadn't. So we were on active rainbow watch.

As you might have guessed, there were no pots of gold to be found anywhere. 

Sad, because they really could have come in handy.

Excellent.

We are spoiled with rainbow sigthings here. Our house is positioned in a river valley and the summer and the spring offer a regular front-row seat to these wonders.

Very cool - and it was a double!

He found the pot of gold in the joy of seeing his first rainbow, Dad!

@slamdunk - Nice. I bet you are chasing pots of gold all the time. :)

@Teri - Where can he go from here?

@Bruce - Duh! Good call.

@Momnextdoor - Carying my camera around. :)

A double on his first? That's gotta be lucky.

What a great photo. I still get excited at rainbows (but not as excited as that YouTube guy!)

Well, if you want to be corny about it - you could say his amazement was the pot of gold. Though I'm with you - I'd rather have the real stuff.

That's has to be the best looking rainbow I've seen in years.
