Elizabeth in the Mud

This summer has found Elizabeth enjoying the simple summer fun of being a mud chef. She has tried 'mud pies', 'mud cakes', and 'mud stews'. She is becoming quite the gourmet.
She meticulously makes and selects mud from different areas in the yard so that she gets the right flavor and consistency. The dirtier she gets the better she seems to think it turns out. She spends hours at this.
The simple joys of childhood.

Incidentally, the laundress has asked her to select one dress that she use as her 'chef' outfit so that all her clothes don't get ruined. Ground in mud is REALLY challenging to get out!!
