The inevitable always happens!

We have a huge backyard. Filled with lots of fun things for three kids to occupy their time. Our yard is just rocks and dirt, and the dirt here is very sandy, so they actually have a huge sand box along with all the other things. Now, what do you think is these kids' most fun thing to do???Why, play in the mud, of course!"But, Mom, we're just getting our feet in it!""Yeah, right!"---The Mud Monsters

When I was under 10 or so, our backyard was completely un-lanscaped and we LOVED it! There was nothing more fun than playing in the dirt/mud. Glad your kids get to enjoy that as well. Completed yards are never as fun for kids!

um, not fun for mom to clean up! Hahaha! But, the kids look like they had a blast.

Our backyard was similar when I was a kid. My mom used to use a broom to dust off our backsides. You might need a hose. Looks like fun!

Just dunk them in a tub of water at the door, like you do your feet at the beach house. If it keeps them occupied let them have at it.

Mud is the world's all time best toy. I loved making mud pits as a kid.

Of course! There's some kind of magnetic pull on kids to the messiest thing around. Too funny!
