Squeaky Clean

I put my kids in the tub and then, because I didn't want them to mess up the house, decided to walk them to the park.  Not my best idea to avoid messiness after a rainy night.








 
It sure was messy!  But it sure was fun :) 
Back home & back into the tub for my little pack.


On a different note my Dad had a very serious surgery last week & if you could pray for his healing, my family would really appreciate it.  His name is Dan & we all love him dearly.  
Love you Dad!!!!

Libbie, hope your summer is allowing you the most wonderful and beautiful moments as you have shared tonight...sending you hugs to you and your sweet father..my heart is with you because I can relate in more ways than I can share now. Thank you for sharing, I'm praying for Dan!

Natasha said...

Libbie, I will definitely keep your dad and all of you in my thoughts and prayers. When he is better I am sure he will love seeing these wonderful pictures of your three cherubs all messy and grubby after a fun time in the park!

Best wishes,
Natasha.

Okay, good thing Dad isn't feeling up to being on the computer as he would definitely not like that picture floating around!!! Don't worry, I won't tell him...

Good luck cleaning out your tub!

First, yes, I will definitely pray for your Dad. (I was wondering why I hadn't seen you two around for a bit.) Will pray Doctors will have great wisdom, too.

Your muddy kids are still beautiful!

There's nothing like a good "MUD PIE"...Mmmmm...YUM! Oh dearest, my thoughts and prayers are with your dad and your family during this time of recovery...love Rosie

They call me "Deb" said...

Praying for your sweet Dad. I know when Daddies are hurting their little girls suffer too. Please keep us posted on how he's doing?
Now for the mud - I guess there are times I wish I could be as free as your kids! Here I am chasing after it, cleaning it up, fighting it, etc. and they just delve in and enjoy it. Oh the joys of childhood.

nicola/smilernpb said...

Yes, maybe you should have skipped the 'before' bath! Saying that, I bet they had fun in the mud.

Sorry to hear about your Dad. I will keep him in my thoughts.

Hugs xo

My heart goes out to your family as your dad heals. Prayers for him for sure!
My boys looked just like yours tonight! They found a pile of black dirt at the neighbors...enough said!?

Mary Anne Gruen said...

Definitely special prayers for your Dad.

It looks like your "pack" sure had fun! They're lucky they have an understanding Mom who understands fun and the messiness it takes sometimes. LOL

I've given you an award over at my blog. Don't worry about passing it on if you don't have time, especially with your father's recovery. Just consider it a shout-out for your blog.

You may laugh at me, but when Mr. Arkansas and I go for bike rides I always stop at the park to swing (and often I end up just as dirty as your kiddos).

PS: I'm keeping your dad in my prayers.

Marla said...

That picture of your dad broke my heart. I always think of him at the coffee shop. We are praying.

Your dirty little kids are too stinking cute!
