Yesterday afternoon, my boys crammed their feet into rain boots that are 1-2 sizes too small, all for the sake of some good
clean dirty fun!
Jackson can get up there!
Nice one, Ty!
Lily was highly amused by her brothers’ splashing (although she doesn’t look it here). After a while she was whining to get out of the stroller, but no way was I adding a 4th child to the bathing list for the night!
We now pause the muddy fun to admire something beautiful!
Oh, how I love Kansas City in the spring! Flowering trees abound, and these Redbuds are my favorite, by far!
They were having fun. Really, they were!
Then we took a break from the jumping, and found a side street where the water was rushing down the side. I had the boys find various objects in the grass to drop in the water up the street a bit, and we would find out what came down the street faster! Turns out dandelion heads are pretty speedy.
Then we found some worms, which had (wisely) vacated their homes. Sadly for them, that also means curious 4 year olds and hungry robins can find them easier!
Not sadly for me, my 4 year olds are willing to carry wiggly worms back home and put them in my garden for me!
Ah, the fun memories!
