It isn’t just Peppa Pig who likes to jump up and down in muddy puddles.
Although our washing machine may never be the same again, after our kids went full-on Tough Mudder and spent an afternoon running around, jumping and generally wallowing in mud.
Actually, these photos are four weeks old now and they weren’t taken by me but by a friend of ours. Indeed I wasn’t even there to witness our kids’ glee, as I was on my way back from BritMums’ BML conference in London.
I did see them when they returned home, though. They were, not surprisingly, exhausted but I have rarely seen all three children beaming from ear to ear quite as much as they did then.
I wrote earlier this week about how life is all about experiences. I don’t think this is one experience any of them will forget in a hurry. If you can’t do this sort of thing when you’re a kid, when can you, right?
