~ Wet and Wild Weekend ~

We finally got some much needed rain , we had storms off and on all weekend. Curious J and Little Froggy stayed Saturday night with us. We went outside to let the chickens and goats out for a little while so they could forage and get some exercise. After the critters were out , Curious J headed back to the house to play with the water hose , while I was trying to get him to shut off the water , Little Froggy found a mud puddle. When I turned around he was in the middle of it , jumping up and down. Since he was already wet and muddy , we just let them enjoy the puddles and Boy ....... did they ever !
Look at Little Froggy's face .......... that look says I can't believe they're letting us play in the mud ...............................................................
After jumping up and down , splashing all the water out of the puddle , it was time to get real messy ...........................

wallering like a pig .....................................

then the mud ball fight was on , Little Froggy was chasing me and I was trying to get away and get a pic too (LOL).

Curious J trying to get " Pawl " with a mud ball !

Afterwards Dh sprayed them down with the hose and I made them strip off those muddy clothes before they headed inside for a bath. Curious J wanted to know why they had to take a second bath , he considered the spray down a shower I guess. I told him it was because he was double dirty (LOL).

Hope you had some " Simple Fun " this weekend !

Brings back memories of my
son and his step-brother
coming home drenched from
head to toe with mud. When
I seen them I just started
laughing so hard.

What fun you have with your
grandkids!!

Check out Lisa (GroggyFroggys)
blog for her Grandmother's recipe.

There is a book coming out that
I am wanting to get. I will first
get it through the library. I am
third on the list. But from the
reviews I think I will buy it. It
looks like something I've been
waiting to see someone come out
with. I put up a link to it on
my blog. It is called Edible Wild Plants Wild Plants from Dirt to Plate by John Kallas PH.D. I think
it is at the second link on the links I put up.

I found some other links you might be interested in at the links.

God Bless You and Yours!!!

You are the best Grandparents! I always tried to let my girl do things that were fun for them. I even gave them a wall in the house they could draw on.

Those are perfect memory making times you had with the grands!

What fun - our kids used to love mud football - not much ball playing but lots of "mudding".

That is too funny. They say mud is good for the complexion, they should be good for a while. Cute little boys (mud and all).
