I Want You To Get Dirty

Tucson has just boosted its summer coolness factor.  Mud Fest '08: Return of the Mud Monster (yes, there was one last year) happened at Reid Park today.  It was free of charge.  (P.S. I'm writing this from my friend's house and right now she is putting neosporin on my knees (belly flopping into the mud gave me some major exfoliation)...but she had to crawl under the table to do it.  So there's a little voice coming from under the table saying, "This may sting, burn, tingle and/or tickle."  She's right.  It did a ltitle of all of that.)

A highlight of the event was hearing a mom yell at her kids, "I want you to get dirty.  You aren't made of sugar." 

I think the photos give you a good idea of what it was like.  I haven't had such effortless fun in a long time.  I highly recommend it. --Lu

Lu! Did you know that Abbie was there, too? I totally wanted to go, but I was out of town. I'm jealous. Hopefully they'll do it again next year - or if I'm somewhere else by then, hopefully I can find something like it wherever I go.
By the way, I like you and hope you are well.
