Jumping In Muddy Puddles

 
One day last week I had my usual afternoon school run. It had been a pretty miserable day but luckily it had brightened up by the time I had to leave the house to get Mia. Elliw and I got ourselves ready a little early so we could walk a different way round to school. Elliw wanted her wellies on because she wanted to 'jump in muddy puddles' as she said.
 
So she got her wellies and coat on and I got myself ready and off we went. There were many puddles on our way to get Mia and it was a surprisingly warm and lovely afternoon walk. Very rarely will Elliw just run off herself and play by herself, especially when we are on a walk but this day she wasn't too bad. I had to tell her a few times to let go of my hand and just run. We did a few games on our walk, such as racing, eye spy and of course, jumping in muddy puddles.
 


I love it when we have happy days like this. Elliw can be a right handful at times but she was so well behaved on our walk and we even enjoyed it on our way back too. She was forever jumping in muddy puddles. If it made her happy, then I was happy too!

  3. Muddy puddles are a must at this time of year. I love Autumn. I often go out in the rain with Bean just to get the fresh air. I'd go a big nuts somedays, otherwise ;-) Linking up with #PointShoot

  4. A pair of wellies for Martha is on my to-buy list. I was hoping we would have had a nice summer but I think I should just embrace the fact that it's Autumn now. Lovely scenery in the background as well xx #PointShoot

  11. Aw, cute photos of your happy little girl! No matter how awful O's behaviour can be at home (and we're going through some very annoying behaviour atm), as soon as we're outside he completely changes and we have so much fun together. I really think being outdoors really makes everyone feel so much better and lifts spirits. Puddle jumping is of course a fantastic activity for all kids (and adults too!).

  16. Firstly, when you start shopping for a trampoline you should keep safety issue in center, this must be the first thing you should take care of, when you discuss a trampoline with a sales person. Now, the first thing is to make sure that the trampoline basic setup and installation are straightforward and easy to do, that you can build the trampoline using tools you know & you have around the house, and that there are features of the trampoline that are safety abiding.
