What a wet and miserable week it’s been! We’ve been doing a lot of indoor play at play centre but we have managed to get out and about a bit to make the most of the dry-ish patches whenever we can!
With all this wet weather we have been making a lot of use of Monkey’s wellies and waterproof trousers – he loves puddle splashing and I don’t have to worry about him getting soggy when he’s all kitted out!
It’s also a good motivator to keep him moving when we have a stubborn moment – let’s go find a big puddle! Soon gets him moving again 🙂
There’s a lot of squirrels around at the moment and Monkey loves watching them scampering about.
There is a squirrel somewhere in this pic, I think it’s climbing down a fallen log… as it was running off Monkey waved goodbye (bless him!)
(There’s a grey blur on the fence that I think is the squirrel! My phone is ok for close ups but not so good for longer distance pics!)
Yesterday afternoon’s walk to the post office took forever as Monkey just wanted to spin and dance around – and there wasn’t enough puddles around to persuade him to move!
It started to rain on the way home so he was back in his buggy, and to my surprise sat there chuckling the whole way home – apparently Monkey loves the rain!
Just popped across from Britmums and found your blog. I’ve so enjoyed reading of your delight in your mumhood! All the best.
Thank you and thanks for stopping by! 🙂
Oh that looks great funx
He does turn a simple walk into a fun outing! 🙂
Puddle splashing and spinning around – what more could you ask for?! Lovely photos x
Ha ha absolutely! Thanks 🙂
Aren’t wellies and waterproofs a godsend #CountryKids
Oh they really are! Means all that fun can be so much more free without the worry of the kiddies getting soaked and freezing! Xx
Aww looks like he had a lovely time! Not surprised he loves the rain :p x
Thanks, apparently ge lives getting out and about, whatever the weather! 🙂 Xx
It sounds like you have a water baby on your hands! What great fun children can have when armed with waterproofs and wellies in this weather. Thanks for linking up and sharing Monkey’s fun with Country Kids.
We really do, gotta love waterproofs at this time of year! Thanks for hosting 🙂 xx
What a super trip out, I am loving his wellies, we need to get some more for my son … love those puddles x
We do have a lot of fun and wellies are a must at the moment! Thanks! 🙂 Xx
My little one loves the rain but HATES the wind. I don’t know what we would have done without waterproofs and wells this winter!
Oh bless isn’t that funny? Monkey loves the wind in his face, has done since he was tiny. Thank goodness for waterproofs though definitely! 🙂 xx
Brilliant – so many puddle jumping blogs on Country Kids this week. Can’t think why??!!
Ha ha hmm anyone would think we had had a wet winter! 🙂 xx
Puddle splashing is always an adventure for kids! #countrykids
Absolutely – so much fun to be had and so simple 🙂 xx
What a great idea to keep him walking. I’ve just bought Eli an all in one waterproof so he can splash to his heart’s content, hopefully it will keep him walking quickly!! #countrykids
Ha ha it does work well – playing peekaboo behind trees works really well too, have a look at my other post on creativity – http://becomingastayathomemum.com/creativity-is-the-key-basahm-survival-kit/
Waterproofs are so useful though with all this wet weather – they can have fun and stay warm and happy! xx
