Rain + Mud = Messy Good Time for Hundreds of Michigan Kids

WESTLAND, Mich. (AP) -- Mud Day was even muddier than usual this year.

A steady rain drenched the hundreds of kids and parents Tuesday as they ran, jumped and waded into a 75-by-150-foot mud pit during the 26th annual event at a suburban Detroit park.

Todd Mueller missed 2013's sunny Mud Day because he had to work. But the 43-year-old consultant from Ann Arbor took the day off this year to make it to Hines Park-Nankin Mills with his wife and two kids.

Not more than 10 minutes in, Mueller was on his back in the middle of the pit covered from head to toe in mud, which he described as "soft and squishy" before his daughter jumped up and slathered on some more.

Mud Day is hosted by the county park system.
