What happens when Mama doesn't pay attention . . .

The day started out on a fairly clean note.  The boys and I went out back to finish planting a couple plants.  I did have to wet the ground to soften it.  Any clues as to where this is going?  Aidan preferred to sit near the hole I was digging while Jacob enjoyed helping pour in the compost.


Well, things took a slight turn while I stepped aside to photograph some of my blooming tulips.  I remember hearing a sloshing sound, but it just didn't register . . .


Then it clicked.  I turned around and walked (yes, walked, not ran, I figured if what I thought was happening, it was too late anyway) from one end of the patio to the yard and this is what I found!






The boys really had a blast playing in the mud and it was hysterical to watch them.  Then came time to clean up . . . Luckily we are having great weather and I was able to strip the boys down before going inside to take a bath.

I love it!! So much fun and so great that you caught it on camera. Now you have an activity to bust out when they are restless and you need something sure to please! They are too cute!

Looks like they had a ton of fun! It's good for kids to get dirty sometimes :-) I like the picture of Aidan sitting in the mud, I like the angle.
