Better to write for yourself and have no public, than to write for the public and have no self. Cyril Connolly (1903 - 1974)


Oy yai Yoi - I'm it!

Retro housewife Meg from Overdosing on Nostalgia tagged me and so here I go. Rules are below.

My first trip to Alaska in 2006 was our vacation which we spent with my SIL and her family. My son was about 15months old and this was his first puddle play. I was not there at the time. He was with his father and I am glad I wasn't there or I might have deprived him of this natural instinctive and very fun play because the water is dirty and outside was cold! He had a great time splishy splashy.

Of course I have follow up photos of him stomping and the aftermath but I must follow the rules:

1.Go to your documents

2. Go to your 6th file.

3.Go to your 6th picture.

4. Blog about it.

5. Tag 6 friends to do the same.

And the six are:

Kyla @ The Hellion's mom
Marie @ Into The Dragon's Lair
Melony @ Tails To Toddlerhood
Renee @ Seeking My Avalon
April @ Let Them All Eat Cake
Kerri at Desperately Seeking Sanity ( I know Meg already snagged you so don't worry I'll just come read yours :)


  1. I totally would have deprived him of the fun too. It must be the mother in us, we know WE are going to be the ones to have to clean up the mess! He looks like he is having a blast though!

  2. What a great picture to have. Nice that his Daddy let him play in a puddle. Us mom are just no fun.

  3. You just can't beat splashing in a puddle!
    What a sweet picture. :->

  4. I've got an award for you. Wasn't sure if you have this one.

  5. I LOVE that picture. My son is about the same age and I bet he would love to splash in the puddles if we had them, but we are living in the frozen tundra!

  6. I know what you mean... I would have probably deprieved Graham of that experience as well! He is always trying to do this on the rock in our sidewalk!!! Boys!!! OH.. i love my boys!

  7. JAM I'm coming over and indeed we are no fun lol

    Of course I ended up having to clean him from head to toe and shoes too! But these are the things memories are made of.

    Thanks ladies for visiting.

  8. What is it with kids and puddles? Guess if I didn't have to do the cleaning up I'd be in there too.

  9. This is one of the most precious pictures that I have seen!
