On Friday, while watching the early morning news, I learned about the annual Mighty Mud Mania event in Scottsdale. It was going on that morning and since we had nothing else planned, the kids and I hopped in the car and headed out to have some dirty fun. They ran through obstacle courses, played in mud pits, and slid down soapy slides. The boys, in true male form, got as dirty as possible, while Elle managed to stay mud-free. The giant shaved ice treats saved us from the 113 degree sweltering heat! It was a great event and I've promised the kids it can be an annual experience for us!
