What's That You Say? It Was Raining This Weekend?

Erin has rainboots.

Erin has a raincoat.

Erin has mad puddle jumping skillz.

I can't take credit for the director of photography's choice of angle near the end of the video, however.

Kids are so small! I didn't think I was small when I was a kid, you know?

On another note, I think I pulled a neck muscle.

It rains here quite a bit this time of year. Please, allow me to have her. At least for the months of March through early May. If our basement floods, it's just an added bonus.

She's having so much fun, makes me want to be a kid again.

Jill said...

I do that with my camera all the time! And i never learn my lesson!

et we insist on buying our kids toys when a pud muddle will do?

and I also totally forget that video cameras cant go vertical.. they only have the horizontal option. Then, when I view my clips, I am all "Doh!" So blonde... but the kid is cute, so all is well.

I really want a pair of rain boots now. REALLY.

i love it .. i think i have a video of my daughter about the same age doing some puddle jumping .. with close to identical camera angles :)

It took me a while to realize that you can't tilt point and shoot cameras and have the camera adjust.

I still jump in puddles every once in a while. Would be so much better if I had those boots though.

Mum,you always say no I don't want wet feet in the car!!!! But now you say run, jump,splash and be merry! Crazy mum,yeah they decided to keep me!hahaha love the vid!

Shonda Little said...

I'm just impressed she didn't plop her butt down in it. My boys would've been on that in a second. Cute vid!

The cutest ever.ot

Brain is now coated in pink glitter, sugar, and unicorns.

That was so damn cute.

2 Things I Really Loved:

1) "It's okay to be wet!"
2) The way she explored the entire length of the puddle in both directions.

Beautiful.

You may have interest in this, if I can be so bold as to share it:

We just have to dance together now.

We like playing in rainwater, too. :-)
