Soaking up the... MUD!

Yep, soaking up the mud literally.  I ran to the store on Saturday and left Grant in charge of the 4 kids... when I drove up this is what I found.  Tyra eating mud, for real... EATING mud.  She loved it!  Since she started walking she gets to go outside a lot more... it is very very dirty... but she obviously doesn't mind.

This is what the boys were doing the day before.  We have been getting  a lot of rain lately, leaving lots of puddles everywhere...  Friday afternoon after all the rain it got sunny and 60 degrees!  So they headed outside with their squirt guns and found the GIANT puddles to have a water gun fight in with the neighbor boy.  They were actually using the puddles to fill up their squirt guns.  For the past two weeks I have been doing lots of muddy laundry, hosing off our back porch, dumping the water out of their boots and spraying out the dirt filled bath tub after they come in and clean up!  Spring break so far has been lots of legos, play-dough, coloring, movies, mc donalds, playing war (the card game) and playing a game called angry birds on Grant's Ipad. Today I had to work and the sun finally decided to come out... Lucky for my kids they got to go to grandpa Rick and Grandma Deba's today...  (while I worked) which means feeding the ducks, going to the park, and riding jeeps and bikes on their long driveway and the loop the grandkids take over when they are there.  The high light of the day... Griffin found a dollar on the trail!!
