I quite enjoy the mud scenario -- you know, mud soccer, mud football, rainy days running around in mud puddles....the more controlled mud environment. And I am fairly certain that once upon I, too, enjoyed rolling in the dirt....probably a long once-upon-a-time-ago, but nevertheless, once upon a time. But this kid? Oh, he more than enjoys it. This kid loves it. Mud, dirt, sand.....if it's close by, he will find it. So you can only imagine what a good ol' campfire becomes for a dirt lover --- dirt paradise. He not only needed a spray down in the shower after this adventure, but a nice long soak in the bath after to get all the dirt off. Play on, little boy -- play on.
