mud buddies...

Ahh... I just love going back through old photos ! These were taken back when dd was 6, when irrigating with dad was a treat and not a summer job - ha! At this small size it's hard to tell, but they are both covered in mud nose to toe. Apparently, there was a water fight involved too at some point before they got home.

my older son...

I do have one! Sometimes I look through my scrapped pages and wonder...! At 14, he has a habit of not being in many of the photos I take. Hmm... now that I think about it, I mainly see him only if there's food involved. ! which reminds me, he is a quarter of an inch under 6 feet tall. (!) I should find a way to work that onto this latest page ...hmm...
