Simon turned 2 and since he’s such a dirty kid and we were redoing our backyard…
the obvious solution was to have a MUD PARTY!!!
We put on our “dirty” clothes and turned on the sprinkler to get things going.
That didn’t make enough mud and the kids were turned off by water spraying in their faces, so we turned to the hose for more immediate mud. Then the kids started warming up to the idea of being dirty. Who would have thought kids would need to be “talked into” getting dirty?!
I think it helped them to see the grown-ups getting dirty. Or maybe it just confused them? Ha!
We took a break and had some pizza and dirt cups (obviously).
Blowing out his candle.
The party was a breeze to plan and prepare and at the end of the day, my little boy was happy and had fun with his friends, which makes me happy.
Happy birthday, baby boy!
