Rain Coat & Boots

Shortly after Kaiden got his cast off I bought him some new rain boots. It had rained everyday for 2 weeks before he got his cast off and then stopped so he wasn't able to use them right away. It has rained many times since then but Saturday was the first time we went out and played in the rain. Kaiden was so excited to put on his boots and his new rain coat (I had gotten the coat a while back but it just hadn't been used yet). He loved jumping in all the puddles and as you can tell it had rained quite a bit, so most of our yard was under water. I had some old rubber boots on and Kaiden wouldn't let me just sit on the porch and watch him. I had to be jumping in the puddles too! We walked all around the yard kicking and splashing. Since I didn't have a rain coat I was carrying a big umbrella around. I'm sure I had to look pretty amusing to passing cars, hence why I didn't take a picture. It was a good time and I definitely got my moneys worth out of his new boots and coat even if he were to only wear it once. He was just so happy and grinning from ear to ear. And he was thrilled that after playing in the water outside he got to go inside and play in more water for his bubble bath! What a lucky kid wouldn't ya say?

Kaiden looked like he had a great time. Wish I could have been there to splash around with ya'll.

Kaiden and I would be great friends! I can't think of anything better than jumping puddles as a kid.

That looks like a lot of fun. Are you sure he had more fun than you?

Growing up our mom didn't like to let us play in the rain, but our dad did. We were always sooo excited when it would rain when mom was at work and we were home with dad! Kaiden and Kalli are lucky to have a mom that doesn't mind putting up with a little mess to have a good time!
