Dirty Days

Pumpkin Apple Streusel Muffins: That was my latest great find. Crispy sweetness on the outside, tender and moist on the inside. The flavor of fall.
The weather has been really nice lately. We have finally cooled off to the 80s! I took the kids outside to play. My neighbor is having some landscaping done around her yard. The workers dumped a big pile of dirt in the cul-de-sac. Tristan spotted it first. I tried to deter the kids but then one of the workers suggested they go get their buckets and shovels.
Both kids had a blast but they were covered from head to toe with dark brown dirt. It was fun to see them play in it. I didn't even mind so much when Tristan ate a few handfuls of dirt. He seemed happy. If it wasn't for our dinner meeting with Daddy it would have been even more fun. I had to take them in the house and give them a bath before taking them to the hospital so we could have dinner as a family.

Yum Christi-
I am going to have to try those muffins. I'm glad your kiddos had fun playing in the dirt. I just bought some sand for a little pool for our dog to dig in, but the boys played in it before she tried it. And then of course my house had little trails of sand everywhere. Tell Christopher hello for us!

Hello! I hadn't checked your blog for a while. Good to read you again. Those muffins do sound yummy. Maybe one of these days I'll have time to bake.
