Little Ducky Duddle...

...went swimming in a puddle.
Went swimming in a puddle quite small.

Said he, "It doesn't matter how much I
splash and splatter,
I'm only a ducky after all!"

These two adorable little girls caught my attention on a recent rainy day and I just had to share them with you. (Their dad told me it was alright to take their pictures.)

Their rain ponchos were obviously way too big on them, but they reminded me of our own granddaughters who are about the same age. Do you know how hard it is to take a good photograph in the rain when you're smiling from ear to ear? It's not easy, I tell ya!
The weather wasn't going to dampen their spirits...something I'll try to remember as I go about my days in less than sunny weather.

This post and these girls are so adorable. I love how children are not phased by a little rain and instead embrace it. Remember being little and wanting to play outside in the rain and always step in every puddle? Why don't we still do this? Well sometimes I still do...
So thankful you finally got some rain. Happy Saturday Dear...

Rain doesn't dampen children's spirits. Nothing much does!

This is such a sweet post! I love that their ponchos are too big - somehow it makes what they are enjoying seem that much more enjoyable.
I hope I always remember the joy in a rainy day...

What's that saying? "Life isn't about running from the storms, it's about learning to dance in the rain." Kiddo's always seem to know what adults seem to forget.
Yeah...I'm never gonna grow up! hee,hee,hee. ;)

Donna, I was smiling the entire time I was reading your post! These two were obviously having a wonderful time in the rain. It's raining here again today, but I am not complaining. My irrigation system has been on the fritz with a slow leak and all that $ has gone down the drain- literally. So now that it's raining, that's less watering for me to do. I'm hoping it will make up for all the water that ran while the pipes were leaking! LOL
