Get Dirty, Eat Acorns

McKenzie has the good fortune to have a mother who is not afraid to let her get a little dirty. At the first sign of spring Kenzie and I took it outdoors for a little exploring. She was absolutely fascinated by everything she saw. Normally when she has her little push car I can't get her to stand still, but when she was outside she stopped at each step to touch the ground or to pick up a new and interesting object...acorns, rocks, and leaves, oh my!
In typical New England fashion, however, the beautiful 70 degree days were followed by some rain and then 40 degree weather so we were inside for a bit. Yesterday, while Dustin and I did some yard work we let McKenzie explore the backyard. It was a little chilly, but the fact that she had to wear mittens made her put-everything-in-my-mouth game a little easier for Dustin and I monitor. The forecast calls for 3-6 inches of rain over the next few days. I'm teaching Kenzie the "rain rain go away" song and hoping to be back outside soon.
