Making Mud

I spent Tuesday to late Wednesday evening with my daughter and 3 grandkids...what a fun visit it was...but oh so very busy all the time. I taught Jackson how to 'make mud'....I am a very good Grammer in his books....he was so excited when I added water to the dirt...more water to make it a lake...then put his little cars into the muck and used the little tow truck toy to pull them out....over and over and over again...."no go home" he knew that meant he had to have his afternoon sleep!! PRECIOUS MOMENTS for sure.
