Boys. And Dirt. And Trains. And a Bug. And a Dog.

Good combination?  Or bad?  Depends on how you look at it. 

These boys are DIRTY!  But.....HAPPY! 

I kid you not, these two played in the dirt for hours! 

They played with trucks, cars, and trains.  We now have a complete road/track for their toys. 

"Who needs shovels, mom? We can just use our hands."

They worked so hard on the track...that they had to take a little rest.

And make a plan.

Everything was going well until Charlie found a friend.

"Fred."  Better known as "Dead Fred."  Ewwww.

Even Murphy needed a bath. 

Overall, these two had a fantastic time playing in the dirt.  While I loved watching them interact and create something together, I did not enjoy cleaning them (Murphy included) up. 


My Boys.



  1. these pictures are some of my favorites! Right there in their own little element. and what a blessing that the boys have each other!!!

  2. I guess it isn't quite warm enough to hose them down yet, eh??!! I always say dirty knees are the sign of a good day! Great pics!


  3. This makes me want to have another boy so bad!!! Love your sweet boys, even when they are dirty.
