"Sliklopen"

My parents are camping in Upleward at the German north coast, about 140km from here. Last weekend we visited them. We arrived friday evening just before the World Cup game The Netherlands-Ivory Coast (?) started. Luckely my parents have a t.v. in there caravan, otherwise Erik wouldn't have gone on friday heehee :)
Saturday we went to Greetsiel a lovely little fishermen town. We hired a family bike, rode around the town having lots of fun and ate delicious ice cream.



On sunday my sister with her husband and kids came to visit us and we went "sliklopen". I have no idea how to translate this in english but it's walking through the mire when the water is low.
It stinks and it's slithery but it's really fun! At some places you sink into it to your knees.
It took the kids only a minute before they completely dived in to it! Can you blame them? Being allowed to get as dirty as possible, how much more fun can a kid have???!!!















Luckely there was a "slik station" at the campingplace where we could wash ourselfs (with cold water, brrrr...) and then take a (hot) shower. We had to take a shower twice to get rid of the smell, but we had a great time!

TFL!

Mudwalking, how fun! The photos are super. But I can't help myself and join in the refrain: where are the photos of you and your hubby covered in mud?

Well, you girls know how it goes... when you're a scrapbooker your most probably the one that's BEHIND the camera, right? For this one time I didn't mind that much, heehee, getting my feet dirty was more than enough!

i guess in English it would just be playing in the mud - looks like a massive amount of fun! My kids would just love to do something like that. Great pics!

Hallo Birgit, ik hoop dat het ook in het nederlands mag. Dat was denk ik wel superleuk dat "sliklopen"! De foto's zijn grappig en mooi, heb je de kleren nog kunnen redden of waren ze rijp voor de container?
