Dirty Puddle

It's that time of year again...
Too warm for winter boots, not quite ''shoe'' weather...

boots: Walmart

And with the warmer weather, and melting snow come...
And we've got a HUGE one in the ditch across the street.

We spent a lot of time outside this weekend, and that particular puddle was a big hit!
It was still a bit chilly on Saturday, so the kids didn't get too close... but this little boy was very happy!

 The weather really warmed up on Sunday, and by Tuesday afternoon... while I was still at work, I received a text from my husband with these photo attachments!

Shirt: Dickies, Jeans: Old Navy
Get him out there!!
Although, I was totally a bit disgusted at the thought of him rolling around in THAT(!), it warmed my heart to see him so happy.  And I DO remember what it was like to a be a kid... and we let him be.
We totally let him roll around in a puddle.


Pin It


  1. Lol I would of had the same reaction! This is something my husband would have let my daughter do. But he does look so happy, I know I'm happy for the warmer weather and we didn't even get snow!

  2. Oy my gosh! I literally had to laugh out loud when I saw this picture! That's just way way too funny!

  3. Oh, that's the best! Love the boots, too!


  4. Awesome that you let them be kids, but I also would have had the same reaction! I love the shot of that huge puddle he's standing next to because it reflects. Cool.

  5. I miss the days of being a kid and rolling around in whatever and not caring - too cute!

  6. Seriously - best parents ever! Even though it looks gross, I bet it was soooooooo much fun! :) I'm trying to be more of a 'yes' parent these days...remembering that kids need to be kids and explore...even if it means getting really messy.

  7. I love this! I'm planning a "trash the dress" photo session and this mud is perfect. ^_^

  8. Oh goodness. I see this in my future. Boys will be boys and at his age, ...I might have splashed about some too!

  9. Oh haha that is hilarious. I love the creativity.

  10. eeeewww!! But man does Memphis look happy!! My husband would probably let my daughter do this too..

  11. Bahahaha so gross but adorable! And I love the boots!!

  12. So not fun to clean I'm sure, but SO FUN for him and dad I bet! :)

  13. OMG Lena that is awesome!!!! I'm sure that was complete bliss for him! LOVE IT!

  14. you are a far braver woman than I am (and likely a better mom!) I totally would have freaked out.


I ♥ hearing from you!
Thanks so much for taking the time to write me a little message!
