awww all these sweet sweet pictures bring back such memories.
we have done easter egg hunting in our own backyard in the rain.
i remember this one time we were out late listening to a band at a cafe. they had just closed and dd woke up. she was about a year and half old. she came out and saw the puddles and clogged drain. and walked right into a puddle and jumped in. it was about 1 am on a cold winters morning. not only did she spend a half hour having the time of her life - she infected the surrounding people with her joy too. and the neaviness and tiredness lifted all around us. people seemed to be talking and laughing much more and going home with smiles on their faces. it really had an impact on everyoen around. many just stood and enjoyed watchign a child having so much fun.
of course many came over and said i was the coolest mom for allowing a child jump into a puddle in zero degrees weather.
heck she wasnt cold one bit. no blue lips. went home and took a warm bath and slept wonderfully.
