The weather has been all over the place recently (no surprises for the UK), but we have had a few days where it has just been perfect. The sun came out, the air was crisp and fresh after the long rainy showers and everything looked so pretty and bright! Alice and I have been practically living at the park this week. And we have had lots of fun jumping in muddy puddles.
It sometimes surprises me how many parents still worry about their children getting muddy! The one day there was no rain, the park was full of children. But after a few showers, not one other person could be seen! Even though the sun was out and it was perfect puddle jumping weather. I mean, don't get me wrong, we have definitely enjoyed having the park to ourselves. There has been no arguments to break up, no waiting in line for the slide and swings and no crazy 4 year olds on bikes to mind out the way of. But it is kind of sad in a way.
Needless to say, we shall be spending the rest of this week jumping in that puddle. At least those wellies are getting a lot of use!
