This is literally what they have looked like since we got them home. As the snow melts, any open dirt creates heavenly mud holes for these two little boys. It's like a tractor beam. They love their new shoes and love even more, getting them dirty. I feel like the "Cat In the Hat Came Back" at bath time. I've scrubbed it twice this week and it's only Tuesday! I have come to the realization that the effectiveness of one bath every week and a half is melting away with the snow.
We wandered this evening for close to a mile through open sage brush, thistle, mulch piles, rocks, mud holes, prairie dog towns and Neenas walked the whole way saying "We're goin' on a hike. This is a hike, Mama. And we're gonna camp out here. I'm a good hiker. This is a hike."
The last week has been a good break in week for those shoes. We're glad to have the warmth again finally but along with it comes the mud and dusty bodiesnwhich I had forgotten about over our winter hibernation. Any bets on those shoes lasting through the summer?!?!
