Wordless Wednesday — Getting Dirty

by Janice


Sometimes you just need to get dirty to get to the good stuff.

Friday, we headed down to the beach to enjoy the sunshine. Olivia and Jackson had a blast playing in the water — and I loved catching it on camera.

Now it’s your turn… add your Wordless Wednesday link below.

Thanks to Uisce for creating Wordless Wednesday.

Liv has grown up so fast! I saw your photos on the other post and wow, they were so absorbed with playing. Isn’t it great, they had a grand time and you didn’t even have to spend at all – the beach is a free place children love so much.

My daughter loves the beach too!

23 The Gang's Momma May 6, 2009 at 8:07 am

Sometimes I wish I was better at this. But then I look at my already overwhelming laundry pile. NOT that they don’t get dirty without me facilitating it :)


24 Shasta May 6, 2009 at 8:13 am

Love it!! So fun to get dirty!


25 Kristi May 6, 2009 at 8:15 am

33 Tarasview May 6, 2009 at 8:40 am

tee hee… I have a similar picture of myself when I was Olivia’s age- apparently I would take handfuls of sand and “taste” them… seriously how disgusting is that??? Kids just have to get dirty sometimes…even the princesses!

68 Stephanie May 6, 2009 at 3:22 pm

My 2-year-old would have had so much fun out there on the beach with your Livie. She loves getting wet and dirty and exploring new places. :)

P.S. I don’t see the Mr. Linky. Can you point me in the right direction?


69 Ali May 6, 2009 at 3:55 pm

Such a cute pic! I LOVED playing in water when I was little (still do actually, just with a little more caution lol)
