Sweet Muddy Memories

What a beautiful 74-degree day this has been!

After spending the day with a sweet friend and getting all the boys home, I laid outside on a blanket and soaked in some sun while kids ran all around getting out their pent-up winter energy.

C'mon spring! I choose to ignore the chance of snow flurries for tomorrow. I love winter, but I have officially had my fill now. :-)

Trey, cousin Ethan, and neighbor Noah went off to play in the woods. Garrison and cousins, Adalee and Hadassah, hung out with little neighbor Addi. Who knows what Alex was doing, though probably avoiding any chance of spring allergens trying to rear their ugly heads! 

The dogs were giddy and the mommas were walking. New neighbors came outside, and the smell of grill smoke wafted through the warm air.

Ahhhhhhh! GREAT DAY!

For the second evening in a row, I enjoyed dinner with my sisiter-in-law/one of my besties, Rebekah. We always laugh our heads off together. Such a blessing to be so close all these years! And to live on the same street? LOVE, LOVE, LOVE!

When I walked into the house, I found a trail of mud. Turns out that Trey and his buds decided to have a mud fight! Two of them were now in my showers.

Trey was assuring me he had cleaned things up well as I am looking at the mud caked in his ear! Really son? My bathroom is clean, but you can't even manage your own ear?

I was slightly afraid to look.

So I didn't.

Trey went on telling us about this grand adventure when we stopped him to ask if they had gotten into the mud of the neighbor's current yard project.  His reply: "We're dumb, but not that dumb!"

Hmmm...what do you say to that?

Well, I'm a veteran mom now! I lived through Alex!

I just laughed and said, "Okay, well you just decide how many times you want to clean the bathroom then, because you will keep doing it until it's clean."

He did a pretty decent job. There were only three spots I just found on the shower curtain. :-\

Cousin Ethan...well, he has been in mud predicaments before, so he opted for hosing off in the cold water outside first. Just heard  that his momma found his trail through her bathroom.

Eh, what are ya gonna do? I can just hear the shouts and laughter that must have ensued during that mud war! So wish I had pics of the aftermath to share, but these will have to do... Evidence Exhibit A and two stinking adorable girls!
