The digging began the day before the house-warming party our daughter & her husband threw to celebrate their new home & community. Friends, family, and anyone who is important to them, were all invited. A pig was roasted in traditional Hawaiian fashion, and that required a very large pit.While the men were digging the hole to roast the pig, Little 'J' was digging his own hole, but roasting a pig was NOT what he had in mind.
MUD PUDDLE !Two other children who had come to celebrate camped overnight in the field and bright and early the next morning 3 little mud buddies were busy in the mud.This little girl was very industrious as she walked back and forth from the swimming pool , filling her water can and emptying it into the growing mud puddle.
More water, more mud.
Even more water. This is taking a long time.Let's get...
... the hose ! ( By the way, did you notice all 3 of these children are wearing their pajamas? What's better than a squishy big mud puddle on a sunny morning to start the day?)
The mud buddies added toy cars, helicopters,farm animals, fencing,
and Little 'J' even threw in a house. So much fun in the mud.
The mud pond was beginning to turn into a mud river when some fussy grown-up found out about the hose and turned it off.
But there was still plenty of mud, and mud buddies to play with. Fun in the mud!
