Puddle Splashing

 I read a book recently about ways to play outside with your kids even when the weather isn't ideal.  This inspired me to let Elijah jump in all the puddles outside after a recent rain storm.  Ironically, he was less enthusiastic about it once we got out there, he didn't want to splash in the soggy muddy puddles, just mostly the ones on the concrete.  So that's mostly what we did!  :)

 When Mom was here, she also let him do this, so he was excited to try it again.  Sometimes he "splashed" with one foot, other times he "double splashed" with both feet-actually jumping into the puddle!  Hilarious and cute!

  1. He definitely jumped in mud puddles when I took him. Maybe he remembered this required him to take a bath when we went inside, so he wanted to stick to the less-messy rain puddles this time! It looks like he had just as much fun with rain puddles as he did with mud puddles!
