The Little ones love to spend their time wearing wellies and rainsuits and running through, walking in and jumping around in puddles. There are quite a few good big puddles around near our home and when the weather is wet they like nothing better than to jump in them on the way back from pre-school or the shops.
On a recent walk (See my post - Fun on the family walking trail) we came across some really muddy puddles on our way back to the car and let the girls spend ages jumping in them, they got thoroughly muddy and judging by the squeals of delight and the big smiles on their faces, it was just what we needed to do to cheer us all up after the horrid weather we have been having.
It was the first time Little 2 had been allowed to be completely free in mud, she loved the squelching sound her boots made in the mud and despite my reservations she managed not to fall on her bottom in the puddle!!
Little 1 was really happy and excited to be allowed to do the biggest jumps she could in the deepest muddiest puddle, I love the pictures below of the splash she made and one of her mid jump!
Big smiles and muddy faces at the end of a great fun afternoon, I wonder how deep the next set of muddly puddles will be....
