My Man, My Munchkins and Mud

While bedrest (for back issues, not a baby) isn't my dream way of spending a weekend, what a time the kids had with Daddy -- and he with them. Errands were run. Art was created. Meals were prepared and consumed. Fun was unlimited. Seriously. Behold...



Abundant thanks to our friends John and Nikole for the documentary images above -- and to Double Daddy Scott...for making all everything -- even a bad back -- so much better!

Oh. My. Goodness. I hope they had as much fun as it looks like. That is hilarious! And hey, what I always say about dirt... you can always get clean again. Might as well have fun!

Now this is the stuff memories are made of. I'm guessing that mud never came out of their clothes? Seriously amazing shots! :)

Cheryl Lage said...

They had SUCH fun! Scott actually had to HOSE THEM DOWN! The clothes are on the back deck...I'm not optimistic.... ;)

Aimee said...

Oh, that rocks! My kids would LOVE to do this, but my OCD won't let them. Maybe I'll have to let Dad take the reins for some full contact mud fun ;)

And look at how sparkly their eyes are with all the mud on their faces!

Oh My! lol How cute they look! You can probably kiss their clothes goodbye, but a couple sets of clothes are always worth such wonderful memories. Feel better soon, Cheryl! :)

Oh my! Only dads would allow this sort of fun - right?! I'll bet they had a blast and will talk about that mud fest for weeks!

Take care and hope you are recovering - Kellan

I love that you love your man and your munchkins for having such fun. Many moms would have yelled or cried when they saw their kiddos head to toe covered. Way to be!
