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.
