Sadie had huge puddle stomping ambitions yesterday. We've had a lot of rain lately and a lot of puddles. On the flood plain down below our house there are puddles that are over ten feet across and at least six inches deep (with thick sticky mud at the bottom). Sadie knows she's not allowed to go in the big puddle, but yesterday she raced past me, slipped and slid on her bum through one of the medium/small puddles (it was deep enough to completely soak her up to her waist!). The long walk back up to the house to change that followed was not quite as pleasant as she expected (she took teeny tiny steps until she was picked up). However she was feeling well enough to stop in the driveway and have a bit of fun with the last puddle. My camera was having a little trouble focusing yesterday (maybe because of the rain? Even with the flash up most of the pictures were blurry) but here's what we came up with:
Stomp, stomp, stomp, stomp!
Plotting her next move...
Why do you take so many pictures, Mommy?
A little bit damp and muddy! It's time to go inside and use a lot of stain spray!
I live in a teensy tiny town in Northern California that no one has ever heard of, where deer and bears and salmon outnumber people. My amazing husband is currently getting his MA in Theology and we're hoping to move to Rome so that he can continue his studies once he finishes this degree.
