April showers...

inspire fanciful outfits perfect for watching the garden grow. 
Hazel sits on this stoop and watches her dada plant the first seeds of the season.

prepare the ground for squishy walks through mud and moss.
guess which mama left the back door open and which little girl hurried out between storms today?

provide the perfect accompaniment for impromptu dance sessions.

inside and outside... what a lovely wet day!

  2. Thanks :) definitely not staged... she has so many play clothes and those definitely weren't them (of course, I could have pulled her inside instead of grabbing my camera)! I just used a ridiculous amount of stain remover on that shirt :)

  3. So cute :) Kids are meant to get dirty! I've decided that about half of Caleb's clothes just need to go into the rag bin because they're so stained. But he sure has a good time getting them dirty.

  4. This post makes me want to get out and play in the mud, too! Thanks for the inspration, Hazel! Julie, I hope I am able to be the cool mom like you and run and get the camera and not grab her to save the dress ;)

  7. who CARES about the dirt? those clothes will be gonzo in few months when they don't fit anymore, and those pictures were worth it.

  8. These are really cute. The perfect kind of days often start out seemingly not so. And she's in the making of a monkey bath! :)
