Dirty

What is it about dirt piles that children love? Dirt piles seem to have a gravitational pull on kids. Every kid I know loves to just sit and play in the dirt and make mud pies and build dirt hills. At least I know mine do, they are out in the yard right now as I type spreading dirt around, dumping it in Rosco's water, and pretty much just getting dirty. And I can visually remember making mud pies in little blue plastic plates when I was little, then slicing them up and pretending to eat "pie".
Now that I am grown up, I guess I just don't understand anymore the hours of fun that are to be had sitting in a pile of dirt.
I wish I knew where my camera was so I could take a picture of them, Tessa and Ashley and Rosco, all sitting out in the shade in Rosco's relaxing spot playing away. The best part is that there aren't any toys to fight over, just dirt and sticks, so there is no fighting and crying. It's precious.

The best part was that Ashley's diaper had leaked, so her pants where dirty but she had mud on her butt from sitting in dirt, it was great:)
