Mud-luscious & Puddle Wonderful

Today the weather was incredibly intermittent. It would rain and stop and rain and stop and at one point it was sunny long enough to warm the air so that Wednesday could do this:

Take off the pretty shoes.

Step into the puddle and ask "Where are my feet?"

And sit her little bum down in the driveway and throw rocks into some puddles.

I am not sure what I love more, her asking "where are my feet?" or the utter disregard for her girlishness. (She really does hate muck!) I think I love the dirt on the knees and the shiny pink shoes tossed aside. (After walking through a puddle with them of course!)

Have you been outside lately?
