Looking for gold.

The pot of gold may very well be at the end of our street!
Maddie's ready to start digging for it.
Right after she's finished skipping through the puddles. Eventually, the sun came out, the rainbow faded, and it was time for some swinging.

Conversation just before the following video was taken:
Me: Maddie - you're going to fill your boots with water!
Maddie: I KNOW! That's a GOOD thing! That's what I'm HERE for!


In the end, the boot became a bucket for pouring water on the teeter-totter.
I think I found the gold - somewhere beneath the layers of mud on her face when she climbed in the tub.

That girl certainly has a talent for "zest for life", doesn't she?

teary nostalgia. I loved to walk in the rain and puddles with my girls

We should all go out with such a goal...filling our boots with water.

That's a really great rainbow photo.

Bummer I'm still stuck with this dial-up back up and can't watch the video, but the pictures are great!
