When I saw these kids out making what they call "mud pies", I was less than thrilled. Actually, I was a bit annoyed. Getting even more honest, I was a lot annoyed. They were NOT dressed for mud pie making and messy doesn't scare them so they were making, stomping and splatting mud pies everywhere.
The kids have been on a little Max and Ruby kick lately and one thing that Max loves to do is make, pat, splat, squish, squirt and stomp mud. When I saw their muddy mess, I was like "Great, thanks Max. Why do they have to copy him and not Ruby?"
But, it's really not Max's fault. Making mud pies is one of those things that's just ingrained in kids, kind of like how all kids want to take the couch cushions off.....And when I was little, I made a heck of a lot of mud pies, and I liked it.
So, I grabbed my camera and snapped away while my kids jumped in the mud.
It was fun.
