You dirty girl….

May 30, 2007 at 9:10 pm (the Princess & the Wee Man)

So we went camping for the first time as a family this past memorial day weekend. DH, me, the princess and the wee man. We went with a whole group of people, some of whom are close friends and some not so close. Well, we shared a campsite with another family who has a daughter princess’s age (we’ll call her blondie) and a newborn (6 wks old — she was SO precious). Anyway, princess and blondie got along like (what’s that phrase something like balls afire???) whatever, they got along great. (my goodness, I definitely need to take a creative writing course — I’m tempted to start every sentence with “anyway”).. So back to the topic..

Princess and Blondie were playing with their shovels and buckets at our campsite — basically with dirt. Just filling up their buckets and emptying them out, when all of a sudden one of them decided it would be fun to dump the dirt on this big rock. So for a few hours (it seemed like a few hours anyway — UGH there is that word again!), they were dumping buckets of dirt on this rock. Then one of them decided it would be a good idea to slide down the rock since it was so slippery now due to the dirt that they had so diligently dumped on it.

So the next several hours were spent sliding down the dirt-covered rock. After a while, you couldn’t tell where their clothes ended and where their hands, feet, and faces began. Of course, all the adults were watching and laughing hysterically. My husband, of course, says, “at least they’re not making dirt angels!” I think he forgot that 3 yr old children can hear and understand adult speech… Because the girls stopped sliding for a moment, looked at each other, and flopped themselves down to do dirt angels… FACE FIRST!!

It took 3 days to get all the dirt out of Princess’s nostrils.

If I can figure it out, I’ll try to post some pics….
