Dirt Magnet

There's something about little boys and dirt. They just seem to attract each other. Benjamin had a great time digging for treasure in Grammi's Backyard today. What a fun time he had outside! Every kid needs a bit of dirt to dig in! Don't you think?





One very DIRTY but very HAPPY BOY!

I just love this little kid. I love asking him a certain question each time I see him and every single time I ask the question he gives me the same answer. It's really cute!

Grammi: "Hi Ben, How are you today?"

Ben: "I'm three!"

I will miss THREE. It's one of my favorite ages of my kids and now my oldest grandson is three and I'm lov'in it!!!

Gotta love kids and dirt!

Cute little boy! I love the way little kid's minds work at that age!

I totally agree with you: I have 2 boys at home (8,5 and 5,5) and when it comes to play in the garden, they will always find something dirty (they will call it funny) to do ! ;-)
But what a pleasure to see kids having fun.
Have a nice day.

Isn't three a great age!

Such a handsome young man!

What a fantastic day! He just looks so happy playing in the dirt. Enjoy 3, those are just wonderful years.

Pat said...

He is just adorable. Now...what kind of treasure did he find? (I'm thinking it's the hunt that is important to him and not the treasure...if any...that is found!!!)

Kim....little Benjamin is one absolutely adorable boy. His eyes and smile remind me of you! I love three year olds, too! I have taught three year olds in my church and I so love it! Have an awesome day with your cute little guy!

I love my 3 year old. Gotta love the boys and dirt combo. It'll always wash off no matter how dirty they get.

Hi Kim, I'm 51. doesn't hold quite the charm does it?...wish I had one of those!

Dena said...

What's funny, is from the pictures it looks as though he didn't get a speck of dirt on his red & white shirt. LOL

Tudy said...

What a cute boy.

Lori Holt said...

Darling grandson and nice photos!
Gotta love that dirt although... even though I was a girl, I spent alot of time playing in it too...come to think of it, I still do!

Mrs Quilty said...

He is such a darling! Love those pics of him so happy in the dirt! Adorable! I love that age too! My grandson is 2 and I think this year will be so much fun! Do they have to get older????

Liz said...

What a little cutie!

Liz said...

I love that first picture! Too cute. You are the best grandma ever, for letting a little boy be a boy. That is my favorite age too. Their personalities come out and yet they haven't got that "big kid" look yet. I can't wait to be a grandma.
