International Mud Day 2015

Yesterday (June 29th) was International Mud Day.

We celebrated this “holiday” a few years ago, but have missed it last couple years because of vacation and our cross-country move.

Trenton and Charlotte have been asking about Mud Day ever since school got out.  Yesterday I packed all three kids up and told them we were going on a hike.  It rained here all day Saturday, so I knew that the trail we were going to would have some good puddles (a friend gave me the tip about which local trail was best for puddles).  We got on the trail and came across a big puddle.  Trenton and Charlotte were trying to go around it, when I sprung some news on them.

“Jump right in!  It’s Mud Day, and I brought extra clothes for you to change into!”

I didn’t have to tell them twice!

I wasn’t sure how Evelyn would like the mud, but she loved splashing around with her big brother and big sister!

I spent yesterday afternoon doing laundry.  All of the mud came out of the dirty clothes!  We also took a break from chores to walk down to the grocery store to grab the ingredients for a muddy treat.  Because what would Mud Day be without some mud pudding?

What is your favorite wacky holiday?  I’m always looking for silly things to celebrate with my kiddos!
