Mud Puddles And Other Messes

Sometimes, we get just plain silly in the Takle house.  We do things like this:

And this.

And, then there are days where we just blow it out and do this.  If you listen closely you’ll hear an elderly couple, apparently amused by the muddy display, stop and take notice. 

Summer is right ‘round the corner.  It’s a great time to enjoy your family and friends and get messy.

    Oh…I so remember Sam & Sarah playing in the rain and mud puddles. Sometimes, when I’m watering my plants, I squirt them just for the fun of it…they love it !!!! Making memories….
