Fun in the Mud!

After 2 1/2 days of rain and 5 inches of snow, our yard was pretty soggy for days. As it began to warm up late last week, the boys began to spend more time outside. They were playing outside one afternoon, having a great time and getting along very well. Their fun began in the garage and on the driveway and sidewalk, where it was nice and dry. As I checked on them throughout their play time I was just waiting for them to venture into the yard, and hence the mud. They had on play clothes and were having such a great time, I had already decided I was going to let them get as messy as their little hearts desired.

Sure enough, I peaked out the door to check on "their fun" and they were having some! Their shoes and pants were wet up to their knees, they had mud on their faces, and they were using sticks and their fingers to play some game in a mud hole. Who knew one little mud whole could be so much fun?!

You are wonderful to let them have so much fun... I would have had a hard time with it... Jonathan loves the mud.... he always was able to find it when he was little...

I LOVE the last picture. They are having so much fun! My mama dressed me one Sunday and I slipped outside and found a great mud puddle to play in, Sunday dress and all! I was having a great time...don't know why she got so upset!
