Spring time and Mud Pies!

For all of you who claim that I have "girly girls"-- take a look at this. It was such a beautiful day and so we decided to go outside and play. Hallie immediately went to the pile of disgusting mud and sank her toes right in. As is custom, Maggie followed suit. I was tempted to stop them, but I thought back to my own childhood and how much fun it was to splash in mud puddles and make mud pies, and so I held my tongue. They went nuts! They splashed in the mud and giggled until they couldn't anymore. I absolutely loved watching them have so much fun! I must admit, we had to toss the panties and the white shirt, but those things don't matter one bit. I loved it! We had to bathe three times to get all of the mud off, but it was worth it! What a fun time.

How fun! I would have done the same thing. I love it when they get good and dirty. Your girls are so cute, even covered in mud.
