“… and it’s spring when the world is puddle-wonderful …”
     e. e. cummings

This quote recalls the “puddle walks” my daughter and I used to take on rainy Seattle days.  They were a favorite rainy day activity when she was of preschool age.  We’d don rain jackets and LaCrosse rain boots, purple for her and yellow for me, and head outside with the goal of wading through as many puddles as we could find.  A childish delight recommended for all ages!
