Puddle Jumping

Oh. My. Goodness.

This winter has got to be the longest one that we have had in such a long time. I can’t take it anymore – really. I would just like 2 days in a row of warm weather, sunshine and no snow. The kids and I totally have cabin fever. Our house is ALWAYS a mess because we are stuck inside, we walk around in circles looking for things to do and the girls don’t even get tired out enough for their naps some days. I can’t wait for this weather to break soon, and I have a feeling that we will all be a little more appreciative of summer this year.

All that being said, we did have a handful of days, spread out of course, that were at least warm enough to play outside for a little while. Each day that was nice, we cancelled any plans we had for the evening and spent as much time outdoors as possible. The girls desperately needed it and so did I.

Perhaps it was the temporary relief from cabin fever that caused me to allow any outside activity asked for to commence, but the girls were so excited when they asked to jump in the giant mud puddles and I agreed.

Once they started, there was no stopping them. I have not seen them have so much fun in a long time, so of course I had to run and get the camera. Enjoy Smile

Gabbi had fun making the biggest splashes she could!

It took Autumn and Scarlet a few minutes to be comfortable, but then they had a blast too!

In the contest of who got the muddiest, Gabbi definitely won. It was straight in the shower after this!!

I can’t wait for more spring and summer adventures!!
