Mud in Motion

 He fell down and was so happy about it!


 Clean hands were needed to play in the mud.

 Mud is even better when you jump up and down in it.

 Keeping our balance was tricky.

Our toddlers had been itching to play in this mud for weeks! So...we made sure we had extra clothes for everyone then put on our boots and headed out to play. The toddlers were unsure about what they could do at first- looking to Sarah and I with faces that said  'I can play in this?' Soon enough they were all in and all muddy.
