One unusually warm February day over three years ago I went for a walk outside to splash in the puddles with 2-year-old M--it was our last day as a family of three.
Wearing a pair of pink flowered garden clogs I watched from the sidelines while M stomped through the water with great gusto. That afternoon I ordered my first pair of rain boots--I didn't want to miss another opportunity to join in the fun.
And I haven't!
We wore them to plant the garden,
To spread the mulch,
To splash in puddles,
And to forge the creek at the cabin.
Where I discovered that my boots were full of holes because they filled to the top with water. :)
Holey boots do not, in fact, make good rain boots.
My new boots are a bit sturdier and ready for many more puddles stomping adventures. :)
LOVE my rain boots! :)
Tired T, me, M, my sister-Bubsy, and my youngest sister--J (just missing our sister MB) all wearing our boots to walk to the farm.
And just because these photos are hilarious--
T fetched my boots for me and came into the room like this--
