Mud pies for the soul

One of the highlights of our trip to Georgia has been getting a chance to enjoy the warmer weather. One lovely afternoon we met up with my sister's good friend and played in mud puddles with her and her children.

It was awesome getting all wet and dirty, and the big boys were definitely quite eager to splash and play in the soupy sloppy mud puddles.

The mama's mostly sat in the sunshine eating cookies, up on the hill while overlooking the mayhem down below.

The sweet little girls played in the grass, enjoying the fresh air and warm sunshine.

Miss Mielle crawled after the big boys, excited to experience the mud puddles for herself.

Ribh stuck close to her "Mama Memo" (as Mielle calls her) eager to snuggle up in her mama's warm embrace.

Afterwards we all tromped back up to the house with sopping wet kids, ready to take a warm bath and eat a yummy afternoon snack... champaign with oj for us mamas and hot cocoa and crackers for the kids. What a delicious afternoon!

Papa says: looks like you guys are having way too much fun in the "warm" reminds me of some pictures of Jake and I as little kids at the schoolhouse.

It rained in WI in January last night too!

WOW... I want a mud puddle like that! That's, as my friend would say, GI-NORMOUS! What great fun getting dirty!

Yes, it rained in MN too, but it's been snowing all day today. Don't worry, winter will be here when you come back!

I am SO jealous! No rain here. Just snow and cold, cold winds. That truly is a fantastic mud puddle.
