Mud Puddle Monday

Ah.... the joys of mud.  It was a scorching 90 degrees here in the mid-atlantic today.  When it's this hot there is only one remedy for cranky kids...the backyard sprinkler.  So I fired up the water and left the children gleefully prancing through the cooling downpour.  This is what I found when I returned ......
Mud glorious mud.....oh how I love thee.  The above posted mud puddle provided hours of free, open -ended, and cooperative play between ALL of the children.   Who knew mud puddles also had the ability to perform miracles:) I think I'm going to have to flood the backyard more often!

Love it! What fun. My toddler just discovered mud puddles this past week. What joy! Enjoying your blog, just found it on WTM forums. :-) ~~Julie
