All it takes is a little Rain and a lot of Mud

Never underestimate the power of mud.
My cute friend, Sarah, had the most g.e.n.i.u.s idea to entertain and capture her boys being… well, boys.
We waited patiently for the crazy Vegas weather to cooperate and give us just a little bit of rain.  Once Fall finally realized that October had arrived and it was indeed time for a season change the storm clouds rolled in and we were ecstatic.  And the boys, beyond words.

They were beyond excited and so much fun to watch.  I was the mean mom that made my kids watch jealously from the car until I realized that I wanted to be splashing in the mud too and so let them loose.  My boys stripped their shirts off and rolled, splashed, and squished in the mud until their hearts were content.

It is the small moments that seem to plant themselves so deeply in my heart.  The moments that make me smile.  The moments that I can hear my boys laughter ring in my ears.  The simple moments… that seem even better when accompanied by mud and friends.

It is amazing how easy it can be to make a little boy happy.  All it takes is a little rain, an extra change a clothes and a nice warm bath waiting at home.

Seriously it was SO much fun and my boys loved it! I'm glad you guys came with us because that made it even more fun :)

The perfect mix

You can never go wrong with a beautiful setting.
The perfect white sun dress.
Beautiful weather.
And the sweetest little girl you have e.v.e.r. met. 
{granted I am a bit biased}
It is the perfect mix.

Read my Lips.

Remember him?
So he is now a whole 6 months old.
Eating his toes.
And still has that sweet bottom lip that likes to stay open.
Love him.

How stinkin cute is he!?!?! Love it!! So funny that he totally has the same open mouth:) Can't believe how much he's changed!

You give 3 boys some bottles of soda and you never know what is going to happen.
We had lots of laughs, a few burps, and some great memories.
Head on over to I heart faces and share your favorite prop picture.
