Muddy Puddle fun!

We love being outside as a family, and I must confess I've found the dismal wet weather a challenge to say the least! Boo is very active, he loves to run about as a pirate or a knight and imagine tigers have escaped or that there is a dragon living in a tree!  Playtime outside seems to have been limited for several weeks, often resulting in us running for cover with only a clap of thunder for warning!

In between the rain there was some glorious sunshine this week, and the boys and I ventured out to play making the most of being outside while it was dry. Boo decided we should play car recovery, a game which basically  involved driving a toy car into the mud and then recovering it with his digger! Inevitably this was a very muddy game..

Yes he has made a trench in the garden..

Getting absolutely caked in mud and soaked through wasn't exactly my aim for the afternoon, but I have to confess it brought back many memories of making 'mud pies' as a youngster! I remember my own Mother was never terribly impressed by how muddy I used to come in from the garden! Elvis decided sitting in puddles was a more exciting adventure, resulting in at least two changes of trousers and some very soggy welly boots! A load of washing and a warm bath later, the only evidence (apart from this photo) of this muddy outdoor adventure is E's soggy boots still trying to dry in the airing cupboard! 


  1. there is nothing more fun than a muddy patch in the garden :)

    1. It's so true! They were so entertained! Wellies are still trying to dry though..!
