Sorry to disappear for a month! I had two weeks of vacation, one I went to Washington State and visited my sisters and their families, and the second week I stayed home and relaxed with the husband who also had that week off. The last two weeks have been a chaos of work, overtime, and way too hot weather . . . so that's why I haven't been online. It's cooled down, out of the 90s with horrible things like 80% humidity!
But that's not fun to hear about, lets talk about my first night in Washington State and the mud fight. Everyone loves a good mud fight right?
Once I convinced my nieces, Justice and Vera, that yes, it was okay to throw mud at me, they went for it!
But I got them too!
Mud fights help boost confidence in strong little girls!
And are also good for a laugh or two!
Of course I had to convince the girls to go get their mom, my sister Echo!
She tried to bring out the MOM VOICE, but the fun AUNT VOICE was louder. You can see to the sidelines we have little Liam and Daddy. We did set some rules, so they were safe.
Isn't he just adorable? He's plotting his future mud fights.
Of course I had to show the girls that they really could get their mom, by of course going after her myself.
As you can see, she enjoyed it, right?
Even, Uncle John, got caught up in the action. Unfortunately, he got one of the little mud clumps that had a rock in it. Those were highly unpleasant.
After a good mud fight, what is needed?
A good bath of course!
Even Zero, the dog, was interested in what was going on.
Everyone had an interesting time . . .
and a fun time . . .
and a crazy time!
I learned a very valuable lesson . . . some 9 year old little girls have scary good aim! It was a blast though!
