Rainy Days and Mondays

I've been wanting to take Sam outside and play after a good rain all summer and we finally got our chance last week. Lucy was sleeping so we put on his super cool rain boots and had at it. The back of our driveway gets plenty of small puddles and he had a blast.

Making a muddy splash

Looking quite pleased with his muddy splash

In motion

This last one is my favorite. Even though you can't see his face, I love how it captures so much of his kinetic energy. He was just running from puddle to puddle, skipping through them so quickly he barely broke the surface. It was two-and-a-half, pure and simple.

Yes. I love the last one, too. The vibrant greens against the grey...very nice.

I've been wanting to do some puddle jumping with my little gla, too! I need to get her some rainboots. There are too cute! The green really pops.

Sweet. I had some frog wellingtons just like those and loved them so much.

I know what you mean about the last one but I also love the action shot of the splash! Well caught. Such a relief to get out after being cooped in isn't it? We're doing that here now. It's been freezing and wet all holidays.
