Tis the Season for Puddle Jumping

First off, Happy Mother's Day to all the mothers out there!   I hope it was truly a blessed day.  I am so thankful for the blessings of motherhood.  I know it really is a gift and a miracle and will never take it for granted.  And Drew and I have some amazing role models as mothers, so our kids are also blessed with awesome grandmothers to look up to.

One of the activities I love to do with the kids is puddle jumping.  Following rain showers, we love to jump in all the puddles we can find and see how big of jumps and splashes we can make.  This seems to be the season for it.  With all of the other things there have been to explore at our new home, we totally forgot about the fun that can be had by puddle jumping.  On Friday night, after we ate dinner together as a family, we decided to take a walk in the beautiful weather to find some puddles for jumping into.

And, I grabbed the camera to document our fun...

This puddle was in our driveway.  It ended up being the best one we could find.  I guess we waited too long after the rain and the ground sucked up the much needed water.  But, we still had plenty of fun.  Here Abbey is pre-jump.
Look at that height--and why does she look so much older in this picture.  Please stop growing up so quickly, Abbey!
We finally decided to venture beyond our driveway and see if there were any larger ones to jump in.  This one was near the end of our driveway, but the kids are testing out the muddy-ness of it.  They decided it may be a bit too muddy for early jumping.
We ended up finding a small puddle at the opposite end or our street.  It was tiny, but that didn't stop the kids from seeing how large of splashes they could make.
So much higher than her jumps last year!
Luke tried to get some height.
They love their special daddy time.   Both kids know in this picture that they get two whole days with daddy as the weekend is here!
headed back to our home for a little more splashing...
