Tuesday’s Mini Playdate

Tuesday’s mini playdate was a success! Why mini? Well, because there were 10 kids missing. Whoa, right? But families go on vacations, kids get sick, and important errands must be run. Such is life during the busy summer months. But I’m looking forward to getting together with more of our group in the next week or two :).

So back to Tuesday. The weather was just fine and it didn’t rain. The weather predictions have been so inaccurate lately, but I just knew that the day I’d host an outdoor playdate, it would rain. Mother Nature, thankfully, was on my side. She brought over her two little darlings and she came over to hang out. It’s been a month or maybe two since we’ve last seen each other, so it was nice to catch up. On the menu were donut muffins and sugar cookies that I baked Monday night, grilled burgers and hotdogs, fruit, juices and Starbucks VIA.

The kids had a blast playing together and there were definitely some favorite toys. The Super Soaker and Triple Hit Baseball toy. You’d think the Craftsman truck, right? There were so many toys, that it was only natural for some of them to sit, but they will be played with the next time we get together.

Lily was a fearless little diva, plopping into the pool in her clothes, as soon as she arrived. Jonah showed us his expert bug catching skills, and Jayden wore that poor Super Soaker out. It was a good day! Many of the toys featured in our playdate have been reccomended on Kmart’s Playdate Place blog. Check them out!

I don’t want this post to get too photo heavy, so I put together a little video of clips and photos from the day :).

    Looks like the kids had a ton of fun. This means a lot to them at their age and you will be surprised that they will remember it for years and years to come!

  5. Rosey says:

    I like that you did the video, it loads so fast that way (and probably doesn’t take up a lot of your bandwidth?). Your little one is always so cute. The toys look very age-appropriate. I’m thinking roller skates for my little one’s birthday this year (Sept.).

  6. Nancy says:

    This is so cute! When our son was young, we had a group of 4 kids that had a weekly playdate! Fun for the kids, and a little break for the moms the weeks they were “off”!

  7. Sarah L says:

    The super soaker would be MY favorite.
