Rainy Day Activities

This was the first time I let Jackson "play" with the rice can see why. It might still be a few months before we let him at it again.

Caleb has been really into the tracks that tires and people make. So this morning I let him play with some flour and cars...I'm gearing myself up to driving trucks through paint...we'll see.

Then it was time to head outside. We got all dressed and headed out to the puddles. This was Jackson's first time in the puddles. He loved it! The rain boots I had for him didn't fit (chubby feet), so I pulled out these water socks for him!

Back in for some more flour. The boys had fun, but what a mess!

What a mess...I love it!

You are such a good mommy!!! Puddles, rice, flour, trucks...what more could a little boy ask for?

What a great idea! I am going to go to the store right now and get a big tub so we can have a rice box! I have seen this done with sand before, but was trying to avoid the mess. Seems like rice would be less messy?! Caleb is going to pre-school this year?!

Miss you guys,

Haven't seen you in so long Courtney, but your kids are beautiful. I love the rain puddle pictures, it looks like so much fun.

What a perfectly wonderful "boy" day! My hint for the rice table if Jackson likes it so much - put it on a sheet. It makes for easy clean-up
