Snow turns to slush and then to puddles

When I left the kids this morning at Lillgården they were building a snölykta and when I picked them up a mere six hours later they were playing in a very wet forest and covered from head to toe (faces included) with sand and dirt.

Getting them in the car on a day like today is an ugly event, and the car ends up worse for wear (good reason for not buying a new one huh?).

As we reached home I was telling Makaila how Suparb used to get them clean by turning the hose on them on days like today, when what was before our very eyes as we got out of the car??

A giant puddle!

Telling Kieran to keep out is impossible, he heads straight for them at any time, today he at least had his gumboots and waterproof pants on. Not that he usually cares....

It turned out to be a great way to get the sand off them before we went inside. And they loved it! Whoever invented the song "rain, rain go away, come again another day" was NOT a Swedish kid!!
