Butterfly Beauties

I never would have guessed that a sage bush would attract so plentifully these gracious creatures.  The butterflies are beautiful.  We went to Papa Donnie's house today to see them.  

I guess I need to plant some sage.  Can you imagine the fun and awesome splendor we could have if we had a corner of the yard overgrown with sage...and overrun with butterflies!

Boys and Mud

Ryan wanted mud. He wanted mud in my garden.  My garden that is in the beginning stages of being planted.  My garden that I hope produces abundantly for our little clan.  My garden that if my kids and dogs don't stay out of it...won't BE a garden.

Oh wait...that's not the post.

So I gave Ryan the hose and said go make mud somewhere else.  He did!  It started as just some innocent play.  A hole.  Some water.  His feet dangling in it.  But then he slipped...and discovered...that mud is slippery.  And fun!
And his brother joined him!

And they slipped and slided and plunged and glopped and everything else in that sloppy mud until they were covered.  H e a d -------to--------T o e !  Both of them. 

Mud gets sticky after awhile...

Check him out.  He's just chillin'...
in the mud!
And then he lost his pants.  In the mud.  They stuck.
Yep!  There they are...
The boys had a FANTASTIC time in the mud...and I would have joined them had it not been quite so cold.  Maybe we'll make mud again someday...when it's 85 instead of 55.
