Mud pies! Yum

Jonah loves making mud pies. Jonah loves playing in the dirt, digging in the dirt.....just about anything to do with dirt. And why not? His dad digs in the dirt for a living. Jamie works construction and does "dirt work". So I would think it would just be a natural thing for at least one of his boys to love dirt and Jonah definitely does. So like the loving and caring Nana that I am (just saying)and being that his birthday was coming up, I figured he would love a mud-pie making station (not kitchen). I looked at toy stores galore and even the Little Tykes website and couldn't find anything that was available. So I turned to his creative Aunt Jenny and said, "Hey, could you build one for me?" Of course, she said and build away she went. It couldn't have turned out better.

It's not quite finished here but when she brought it home for his birthday it was. Both boys have had quite the time with it "cooking" all kinds of pies. His dad, of course, even got in the baking.
He had made mud cupcakes, mud turtles,
mud pies and completely covered his mud pie station with mud as well as himself. Doesn't bother him a bit.
