showery days don’t
allow play time out of doors
to burn energy
A drizzle quickly turned into a downpour today but not before I captured Margaret Maeve enjoying some exercise on her pogo stick.
As a child, I recall playing in the rain in the sticky heat of summer while jumping in puddles on the hot tarmac of the driveway. My sense of smell holds this memory tightly.
Another thought is of my entire family racing home from a walk in the neighbouring woods just in time to get out of the down pouring rain, only to discover we were locked out of the house. What fun we had ducking into our fort that wasn’t exactly watertight! It was the first and only time my parents ever joined us there, but so memorable.
And many times I’m caught out with my own children while walking the dog and we giggle as we sprint towards home. Of course, we can only go as fast as the youngest little legs can.
Do you remember playing in the rain as a child, or have you as an adult, with or without your own children?
Have a happy weekend everyone!
