Tropical Storm Phun

After being trapped in the house for several days due to a tropical storm, the kids were desperately needing to burn off some energy. So, Tom took them outside to splash in the puddles. The cold hard rain did not stop them from doing the puddle dance of joy or from racing through the natural slip and slide!





For more Phriday Phun, head over to Candid Carrie and play along with her phabulous foto fiesta !

What a cool mom for letting them get down and dirty in the mud to burn off some of that energy! I wish I could join in the rainy day fun. Well...just for a day or so, I gotta have sunshine in my life. Stay safe! I'm so glad I stopped by your blog. Thank you for sharing.

Esther loves playing in the rain too, though we haven't had any in WAY to long. I'm amazed by how grown up Damion and Dakota are (muscles and everything). Send everyone our love!

Great idea...I wish I had thought of that today...being cooped inside for 3 days is getting really old!!
May be tomorrow if it's still yucky!!
