"Hey Mom - come see what we did!" Those are never the words you want to hear coming from your 5 & 3 year olds that have been playing outside.
They have a history of getting pretty dirty playing outside, but this time they went above and beyond. And what better fun for them on a warm summer morning than a nice cool mud bath.
I hosed them off outside - yup, COLD water - before bringing them in for a good scrubbing. Had to wash their hair a couple of times to get all the ground in dirt out. As soon as they were cleaned up they asked to go outside and play again. Like that is going to happen anytime soon!
