Mud Lake

We went out to Lake Lavon for a friend's 2nd birthday party. I got pictures of the kids in dirt. However, the dirt was easier to deal with than the mud. Oh, the mud! I do not remember that much mud from the last time we were there! We decided to go for it --100%. I sat with some of the little girls in a shallow area of the lake and squished and slopped mud. We were "baking."
When we got home, I spent a good amount of time rinsing silt out of our swimsuits.
I don't let Tessa play in the dirt as much as she'd like. But I do believe that kids need good fun getting dirty sometimes. So, after swimming and mud flinging, I let her sit in this beautiful spot and just dig dirt......while I ate cookies.

Sounds like you have lots of fun taking your kids on outings. Glad they had so much fun in the dirt. It's hard to deal with the dirt and mud, but it does really seem like a good thing for kids.

Hehe, I love the after thought, "while I ate cookies"! Sounds quite fun!

I have to talk myself into getting dirty sometimes too. Sometimes it's good to let go, but more often than not I'm the one "eating cookies." Ü
