When Mxyl and Klenda were toddlers, we loved rainy days. There was a park near our house which developed large shallow puddles, and we would suit up and go splash and dabble about like ducks.
Somehow, this turned into "Ducky Days!"
Whenever it rains enough to get really nice puddles, the kids all go out and play in the rain, quacking like ducks.
When thy were very little, they would then often watch a movie of some sort while I washed and dried their clothes, but they don't get quite so muddy nowadays!
We haven't had a good several day rain in a while. It takes several days to really fill up the big puddles. This Ducky Day was really one good rainy day, and they were just playing in our yard.
In the past, we have had days and puddles where the water topped the wellies and we had to dump out all the boots!
