Puddle splashing in autumn { The Ordinary Moments }

 It's October! This time of year is my favourite, I enjoy spring and summer but for me the run up to Halloween and Christmas is what I love. We've already started getting into the Halloween spirit with movies, decorations and even our bookcase has made the switch to be more spooky!

With Halloween comes the beginning of Autumn, there's a nice chill in the air that makes you want to cuddle up under a blanket with a hot drink and the beautiful colours of nature appear. For children there comes the promise of rain, much more than we have in summer and with rain comes puddles. I don't know about your children but for mine puddle jumping is a sport of which they adore! 

As I had said last week when I talked about exploring nature and getting outside I have prepared for autumn and every one of us has wellington boots while all three children have waterproof clothing for when it's wet. You can bet that the minute it rained enough to leave giant puddles we had to head out and enjoy splashing around! 

Small Blonde haired girl, wearing a bright pink waterproof suit and black wellington boots with stars on is looking down at a puddle she is walking in on the road with the bottom of a wall in the background

We found a quite street in the area with an enormous puddle which everyone enjoyed splashing around in. Scarlet and Dylan both ran around for about 20 minutes before we convinced them it really was home time. Simon and I had even joined in, I can't say it is something we have done since we were children but it was fun! We also Avery played in smaller puddles along the way, even if I'd lost one of his wellington boots and he had to wear Scarlet's old ones!

Dark blonde haired boy with hazel eyes wearing a blue winter coat, navy waterproof trousers and bright green wellington boots is standing in a puddle which has several small splashes coming over his boots. In the background you can see cars parked on the other side of the street and the street corner with houses bending round into a diagonal line.

We've already had requests from Dylan and Scarlet to go out in the rain to the park! Which is obviously a fantastic idea and once my waterproof coat arrives will be our next rainy day adventure. Perhaps we'll even bring some coffee in a flask for me and Simon since we can't join in with that one.

Do you get out and go puddle jumping in autumn?
