Today we were going to go hiking at the Watchung Reservation. Unfortunately, the closer we got to the trail head, the harder and harder it rained. So we decided to head for the playground instead and stay close to the cars so we could head home as soon as the kids got too cold.
Before Sarah and I even got the babies into backpacks, Matthew and Pippi were knee deep in a puddle in the middle of the lawn. They were making "soup" by throwing grass and seed pods into the puddle. I guess they were stirring with their feet. When they finished that, they started grabbing handfuls of mud so they could make a mud slide. Today was a happy day.
