Spring break is coming and with it…BORED kiddos! With all this amazing weather we have been having I wasn’t even thinking about what we would do if it rained! Then as I was making our plans, I remembered one of the best memories I have with Ella came from a really rainy spring day. We were home and she was sad she couldn’t go outside to play because it was just POURING. I was going stir crazy too that day so we put on our best rain gear and went on a “puddle hunt” together. I packed up my camera (thank goodness for Nikon weather-sealing their professional cameras and lenses!) and we just drove around looking for the best puddles we could find, taking lots of photos of her splashing about in them getting soaked.
During this upcoming spring break, it’s almost inevitable that the kids are going to drive you crazy and I’m sure we’ll have a rainy day or two in the mix. PLEASE don’t pass up a good puddle hunt opportunity! We still talk about that trip to this day and Ella is always asking to see the photos we took. Grab your rain gear, a few spare towels and a dry change of clothes for getting back in the car afterwards and maybe some spare change for a hot chocolate on the way home. Get outside and let the kids get MESSY!
