Puddle Jumper and Playset

The kids could hardly contain their excitement in the car after school today. Our Rainbow Play System was finally getting delivered and installed today! Just in time to celebrate a certain somebody's birthday tomorrow :)

We raced home to see the finished project. Jaina and Jayce couldn't get out of the car fast enough to race to the backyard. Hearing them squeal with delight was worth every penny :)

And then 5 minutes later, it started to rain.

Jayce was crushed. He wanted so badly to go play on their new swing set. Instead, I let him put on his new rain boots and clomp around in puddles in the driveway.

Except that there weren't many puddles in the driveway. He kept saying, "Where are they, mom? I don't see them. What's a puddle? Where's the water? Over here?"

Then, after dinner, the sun finally came out. I took a towel outside and dried off the swings and slides. I hope they'll be able to enjoy it more tomorrow!


  1. Wow, that playset looks like lots of fun! So glad the sun came out so that the kiddos could start to break it in :)

  2. Aww, what a cool present! The kiddies' delight in their presents does make every penny spent, every drop of sweat in setting it up worth it, doesn't it?

  3. Those photos on the swing are so fun!
    I hope your mom gets your camera strap made ASAP- they are comfortable. :-)
