Jumping Up And Down In Muddy Puddles

This was actually a post that was supposed to go live a few weeks back but for some reason (which I only just realised) it was still in my drafts folder and wasn't published. So for that reason, I have updated it a little.

The wet weather can be horrible sometimes. We have all probably seen all over the news about the floods down south. The destruction it cause when it's at its peak is so immense, you wouldn't think that so much bad can happen from water. 

We seem to have been lucky, with only getting small amounts of rain and wind. Yes, it is very bad when it comes, but it never lasts long so we have had no flooding. So, at the moment, we are trying to make the most of this weather as you never know when the worst of it could hit us.

We have been outside in the rain, playing. Wrapped up warm in jumpers, coats, hats and wellies, it has been nice for the boys to get outside for a bit whilst the wind calmed down.

I'm sure that we all know how hard parenting is. Trying to keep our children clean and tidy. But you know, sometimes, it's nice for them to just get mucky, messy, muddy and wet. Why not, they will only be young once.

So out we went to jump in puddles...

Splashing, running, jumping and falling, the boys were absolutely soaked afterwards, but they had fun and that's all that matters.

  5. The up side to all the rain we've had - puddles and lots of them. What great fun children have getting muddy and wet (isn't that what washing machines are for). Thanks for linking up and sharing their splashing time with Country Kids.

  7. There is not many positives to the awful weather we have been having BUT seeing the kids enjoying jumping in puddles has to be one of the best free pastimes for fun and laughter :)

  9. Children do tend to enjoy jumping in puddles. I can recall doing so. Just recently I saw a little girl jumping in puddles, with her wellies on of course. What was really funny was :- When she invited her mum to join her. She wanted her mum to share in the fun.

  15. I can recall playing in puddles as a child. We had our wellingtons on due to the weather. On the way home from school we would jump in the puddles, seeing how high we could splash the water.

  17. Love the hats your boys are wearing in the pictures. Fashionable and practical, as designed to keep their heads and ears warm.

  18. The boys look well dressed for the chilly wet weather. Fresh air and exercise can be so beneficial for kids, and they do tend to love the outdoors.
