A majority of the time when we are at the cabin the kids look like this:
Rarely do I dress them in “nice clothes” when we are at the cabin. The attire is old jeans and even older t-shirts.
This sort of thing happens all the time – My mom to Beth, “The mud isn’t that slippery.”
And the kids love it. They love the creek. They love throwing rocks in the lake. They love hiking in the muck.
(Elise was in her new birthday outfit from Nama and Papa here and I can’t lie, I was more worried about stains then anything else at this point AND THAT is why you always wear old clothes. No fun can be had when a mom is worrying about stains)
MUD!!! Beth is such a great sport. She is always willing to play with the kids and I know that the kids will always have fun memories of Beth and their childhood.
And in case you were wondering, these photos do come at a cost. I ruined a perfectly good pair of white socks when I stepped into a hole that made the water go to my knees.
