Come Rain or Shine

Carter loves to be outside. So much so that within the last couple weeks he has been letting himself outside on his own. Luckily, the backyard is fenced in and he doesn't venture outside the fence. (and I notice within a minute or two what he has done) . So anyway, the boy LOVES to be outside come rain or shine but especially come rain. And he is in luck because we get quite a bit of not only rain here but also because we are on top of a very big hill in which we get very hard core rain and wind, a perfect combination for the C-man. This last week has been rain, rain, and more rain which brings another thing Carter loves: MUD.




With all this mud, Carter has been taking about two baths a day.

Hurricane schmurricane. Carter knows a good thing when he sees it.




Btw, we really should have gotten a picture of that thing on the roof of the Civic.

Can I just say...I think it's great that you let C get all dirty & just "be a boy"! Kudos :)

Looks like fun! We are fans of the rain out here too but we haven't had nearly as much as you have.

I love the rainstorms in Pit! My favorite thing growing up there during the summers was sitting on my grandmas proch with all the cousins, listening to the rain and then after an hours of deciding wether or not to play it in it we always ended up doing it!
YAY, carter!

Oh, I love it! What a BOY he is, and how great it is that you just let him play. He will learn so much that way! I love seeing a little of Carter's personality with every one of your posts.

You gotta love boys and their messes. It's much better to have the messes outside, right?! We have way too many indoors. Looks like fun. I should let my kids go out in the rain more often. Thanks for sharing =)
