A little while ago we had some heavy rain - much like we do at the moment. Some of the water formed a nice big sloshy puddle. A nice big sloshy puddle that was minding its own business, not harming anyone..
Chelsea found a floating shoe
While Lani cooled down her bottom
Chelsea traded her gumboots in for some heavy duty ones
This little man was very brave, frequently standing in the line of fire (see 4th photo from the top)
Unfortunately Joe (jnr) couldn't play as he was sick that day :(
Benny enjoyed 'accidently' tripping over
and JJ was too fast for me. I could barely get a shot of him as he zoomed past!
Because of all the rain, hundreds of worms had popped up to the surface. I have lots of worm photos - but I figured one is enough :)
After a (long) while Sisi finally ventured into the shallows..
Haha, just kidding - Charlotte is on her knees :)
Once they'd all had a dip and a good play with the worms, the big kids played their usual games.
JJ got Charlotte...
...and Charlotte got JJ
When I look at these photos of JJ and Charlotte, I remember when Kym and I were young and we each agreed that when we got married and had kids, we wanted them to grow up together. I think we often forget how lucky they are to have eachother. (Toni, you need to hurry up and get your butt over here)
I LOVE this photo of Chelsea trying to sneak up on JJ.... she nearly had him!
Benny has a go..
then gets Charlotte to give him a hand. I'm not sure what's going on here......JJ looks like he's trying to talk them down while Benny is about to throw a punch..... then some sort of strategy? .....or they could be doing the haka??!!
Kids enjoy simple pleasures - (even when its freezing cold) and I enjoy the simple pleasure of watching them.
