Just call him Gene Kelly

Singin' in the Rain is my favorite movie of all time. Take a moment to enjoy this little clip please, then come back to see my own little Gene Kelly in action.

Granted, Canon didn't dance in the rain. If you will check on the video around the 3:50 mark, it is a bit closer to what he did. Didn't stop me from singing this song the entire time though.

Canon had actually been asking to jump in rain puddles for weeks, and we were happy to oblige. I mean, that is a right of passage for a child don't you think? 

The boys started out in the tiny puddles right outside of our house. They kicked the water at each other while I kept my camera at a safe distance. 

Soon enough, though, it was time to seek out bigger puddles and really cause some damage make a big splash.

Craig felt that Canon didn't fully gasp how big of a splash he could make, so he felt the need to demonstrate. Boys will be boys, no matter the age.

Canon soon got the idea and got his entire body wet, but he didn't like the feeling of wet jeans for long. He ended up walking, cowboy-style, back to the house and stripping in the garage before taking a nice warm shower. Guess he got a little of me in him too.

    1. Awesome! It did for me too. They had so much fun. I will have to show you the photos of him walking home like he just got off of a horse. Hilarious!
