ChuChu and her friends were very excited. They were getting ready to have a picnic. I put chocolate milk, fruit, cake, sandwiches and cookies all in the basket. We’ll eat them at our picnic. Mmm! It looks delicious. I’ll bring this ball. We could play with it at our picnic. And I have a new camera. I can take pictures of us at the picnic. Everyone was looking forward to the picnic. But suddenly dark clouds filled the sky. And it began to rain. Oh no! It’s raining! What about our picnic? ChuChu’s father noticed how upset the children were. He knew how excited they all were for the picnic. Don’t worry, children. If the rain stops soon, you can still go on your picnic. But the rain didn’t stop. Big drops fell from the sky and ChuChu and the other children were very disappointed. I put so many delicious goodies in our picnic basket. They would have been delicious at our picnic. And this ball is of no use now. Huh! We can’t play with it in the house. And I can’t take any fun pictures with my camera now. ChuChu’s father watched the children. They all looked so sad. He wanted to cheer them up, so he came up with an idea of something they could do to have fun in the rain. ChuChu and the other children heard some voices. Do you hear those voices? It sounds like someone’s laughing outside. Come on! Let’s go see who it is. The children stepped outside, and to their surprise they saw all of their parents playing in the rain. Oh look! Our parents are all playing soccer! And they’re having so much fun! Come on, children! Come and play! All of the children joined their parents playing soccer, jumping in puddles, and having loads of fun in the rain. Splash, splash! This is so much fun! Everyone cheered for the rain. The children had a lot of fun that day. And Cussly took some great pictures. Say ‘cheese’. Cheese! Then everyone sat together under an enormous garden umbrella in the backyard and ate the snacks that ChuChu had packed in the picnic basket. It’s a rainy day picnic in our backyard. The rain has made our day even more fun! ChuChu, ChaCha, Chika, Chiku and Cussly had a wonderful time that day. They were glad that it had rained. They thanked ChuChu’s father for cheering them up. And showing them how much fun they could have playing in the rain. Thank you, Dad! Thank you!
