Rain is grace; rain is the sky descending to the earth; without rain, there would be no life. - Rabindranath Tagore
As quickly as the rain poured down on the morning of #WeAllGrowMIA, it disappeared leaving us with a rainbow of beautiful faces ready to take in a day of growth and laughter.
The sun shone down on Little River Studios just in time for breakfast with Honey Bunches of Oats, where everything from parfaits to their tasty dulce de leche cereal treats was served to make sure our guests were fueled for the day.
