Mud Lovin' Fool

Saturday was such a beautiful day I spent most of the morning outside playing with the kids. Brayden and Tawny got buckets and shovels for Valentine's Day and they wanted to do some digging. They both loved it.


Tawny loved it eat it...
Brayden just loved shoveling it...

Well, I have a pretty short attention span. I can only watch my kids shovel and eat dirt for so long. (Yes, I did try to stop Tawny from eating the dirt, but gave up. That girl is stubborn!) So I decided it would be more fun if we played with mud instead of dirt. My idea was met with mixed reviews. Tawny absolutely hated it while Brayden thought it was the "most awesomest most coolest thing ever in the whole big world". For those of you that know my kids, that should come as a pretty big shock. Brayden usually hates to be dirty and Tawny has never met a mess she didn't like. Until now. I've found her Achilles heel. Whenever she's bad I'll just threaten her with a little mud. Ha-ha-ha.....

She did like the water so she became our water-fetcher.

All in all, a great day.

Em used to eat mud... a lot of mud. She would have dirt all over her face and I would ask her if she had eaten any. She always said no, but I kinda doubt it! :)
