Puddle Fun

Remember those cute raincoats and boots my mom brought the boys? Well it finally stopped snowing, at least for a few days, and we were able to make good use of those cute coats and boots. And what better way to make use of raincoats and boots than to go puddle jumping.

Jonathan started out just interested in looking in the puddles. But it didn't take him long to catch on to the idea that jumping in puddles is FUN!

I absolutely love those last two photos. They might be my favorites so far this year. I love the action that they capture. The pure joy of boyhood is written all over Jonathan's face. He had so much fun.

Even Jason got in on the fun. I took him out to a puddle and jumped while holding him. I wish you could hear how hard he is giggling. He had so much fun. I can't wait until next year when he can get out there and run around and splash with Jonathan.

Jonathan was absolutely soaked to the bone by the time we decided to head home. As we were walking home we could hear the squish, squish, squish of wet boots. It was so funny when Jonathan would run because the squishing got louder and faster. When we got home I took off his boots and...
dumped all the water out! I'm pretty sure we brought home at least half the water that was down there. After playing around in that muddy water Jonathan got a nice bath to clean up and warm up.

FUN! I bet the boys had the best time ever! Some of the best memories of me and my two best friends is the rainy days when we would just run in the rain and jump in the puddles... those were the good ol days!
