~Hot Springs~

So the other day, I caught Michael and Ben running out the backdoor with a trashcan full of steaming water from the bathtub. “Stop!!” I yelled. “What in are you doing?” They explained to me that they had dug a whole in the hill in the back yard.  They were filling it up with hot water and going to “soak” for awhile. Before I could even stop it, “NO” came right out of my mouth. It was still frozen outside. Surely they would all catch colds and die. But then I saw the energy and excitement bubbling out of them. “Oh, I guess it’s ok.” I said. They spun around. “Really, Mom?? Can we put our swim suits on too?” “Sure. Just promise me you won’t stay out there to long.” They raced up stairs, put on their swimsuits, and were soon soaking away in their little mud pit. They talked Laura into bringing out a few more buckets of hot water. All four of the boys ended up put there. I followed them out and inspected their work. NOt bad. Big enough for the four of them. Steam billowing up, just like a real hot springs. And four very happy little boys. They didn’t last long, all of about 5 min. Then they raced back in the house for hot showers and hot cocoa. Love how these boys play so hard and creatively!!   Photobucket

    Love the “hot springs”.  I don’t think I would have allowed it.  The “mess factor” would be way too high for me…LOL.
