This afternoon it started raining. ALOT. So, instead of heading to the pool I decided to let the kiddos go out back and play in the rain puddle that always accumulates during a rainstorm. I have never allowed this before, so I didn't quite know what I was in for. I assumed that the littles would dive in and splash around like guppies, and Maddie would just dip her toes in and stay off to the side. Um...complete opposite. Allie didn't enjoy it at all, and was ready to clean up and take a hot bath within 2 minutes of being outside. Drew was hesitant to get in the water, but was the victim of all of Maddie's puddle jumping splashes. Maddie was like a fish to water, jumping as high and hard as she could, splashing and giggling the entire time. Afterwards we headed straight upstairs and the kiddos took a very long bubble bath.
