I haven't spoken much more about the muddy fiasco in my yard lately. Primarily because there is not much to say. The bottom line is that there is a lot of mud. What was once green and lush is now sticky gooey and brown. It is a mess.
The drilling was completed yesterday, so we are closer to beginning the restoration...but it is still a time consuming and expensive process that in the short term is out of our control. Best case scenario, it will be mid August before we can sod.
This morning, at the urging of a few smart folks, we decided to make the most of it. When life hands you mud, sometimes you just have to make like a pig and wallow in it. (I am pretty sure this is not scriptural. :-)
P had to be convinced, but once in enjoyed himself immensely.
K was gung ho from beginning to end.
R was completely uninterested. The look of disdain on R's face was hysterical. His face stayed crinkled up the entire time we were muddy. He just didn't get what could possibly be fun about a mud pit. The upside was that he was able to use his clean hands to snap a few photos of the 'Mud Monsters.'
Even our sweet, old Haley dog joined in!
And, Daddy? Well, he seemed to have had the most fun of all!
