When it rains…it pours! And those puddles are AWESOME! #Kamik #YMCCommunity

To live in Vancouver, you really need to be OK with wet weather.

And when it’s wet out, you better be prepared to get wet too.

Puddles turn into small lakes and kids can’t avoid them.  Even grown-ups can’t stay away sometimes.

The other day, we were treated to a spectacular event, brought to us courtesy of Mother Nature. There was thunder and lightening, but best of all…there was a torrential downpour! It rained so hard, that the sewer drains couldn’t ‘t keep up with the amount of water racing towards them. This made for some truly fantastic puddles and rivers to develop in our neighbourhood.

We donned our rain gear complete with our new favourite Kamik Raindrops rainboots.

The rain was no match for these durable, yet comfy boots.

We splashed around until the thunder started to crash and then made a hasty retreat back to the safety of our home.

With the monsoon subsiding, our galoshes have been put aside until the next rain fall. They will definitely be going to Kindergarten this Fall. The kiddos will be learning and playing outside a lot, and we’ve been guaranteed that they will be getting wet and dirty. So our Kamik’s have been designated the “Official Sock Keeper Driers”.

The made in Canada, Kamik rainboots are not only waterproof, but they are 100% recyclable! When your boots have lived their life to the fullest, you can send them back to Kamik for recycling.

I love these rain boots for the kiddos! I don’t remember the last time that I actually owned a pair of rain boots for myself, so I think that I will definitely scoping out a pair for me too!

Keeping the kids dry on the “Wet Coast” #YMCCommunity #PuddleGear

Living in Vancouver, we’ve become accustomed to the “occasional” rainy day.

The kids have probably come home from school soaking wet or they were driving you insane staying inside on a rainy day that you just had to get them out of the house.

Those nasty puddles or small lakes have a tendency to jump up and grab our little ones when we least expect it and drag them into the realm of “undryness”. Our washing machines are certainly being put through their paces every Spring and Fall when the clouds are at their fullest and can’t contain themselves like an overly full diaper.

An awesome way to help keep your little puddle jumpers dry is Puddlegear rain gear!

These suits go right over top your kiddos regular clothing and keep them dry in the event of a torrential downpour or if you happen to stumble upon the “biggest and bestest puddle in the entire world”!

Puddlegear is raingear built tough so kids can play outside feeling warm, unrestricted and dry in their great looking rain gear. Turning puddles and rain into nature’s toys. When kids play they lose themselves in their imagination, weather won’t matter as long as they are warm and dry.
Puddlegear raingear is quality and function down to every last button and seam. And kids think its cool too!
