Puddle Jumping

A slow moving cold front and disturbance to the west has left us in an active pattern of showers and thunderstorms. Strong storms Tuesday night provided 1.85 inches of rain, and another thunderstorm Wednesday evening dropped 0.60 inches of rain. It's raining again this morning, and more rounds are expected each day through the weekend and perhaps beyond. With all the weather talk out of the way, here's what you came here to see...

After the rain Wednesday evening I convinced the boys to get their boots on and head out into the puddles. The two youngest were the most ambitious, but all three eventually waded into the standing or lightly running water. Here's a few photos of the action, but the animated GIF is best of all as the youngest couldn't quite stick the landing.
