When we picked the girlie up from Pre-K today, we snagged her BFF too. And thanks to an awesome gift from a friend (thanks again Ann-Denise) the four of us headed to the Fun Factory. The girls had an absolute blast, and before we knew it, it was time to take Carissa home. But the fun couldn’t end there.
It was too late by then to start cooking anything for Supper. So we had sandwiches at the park. Our first picnic of the year. Granted, by then it was pretty cool and windy (lovely day up until that point). So we ate quickly, then took our first Merry-Go-Round ride for 2011. There will be many more on days when the sun is shining and the birds are singing – but despite the wind and the chill in the air, it was a nice way to end a busy (but super fun) day.
This week I’ve been taking the Collective Kitchen leadership training. And, yay for me, it’s being offered at the Carpenter’s Church only seven blocks from my house and two blocks from the wee girlie’s school. 🙂 Anyway, I left to walk Lily-Ann to school, and on the way we ran into Carissa and her mom. So the two girls got to walk the whole two blocks together – hand in hand. It was so sweet. Us mom’s have exchanged contact info, as we’ve both noticed over the last month how close the girls have gotten. They hit it off at orientation, and their bond has just gotten stronger as the weeks have gone by. So hopefully we can work things out for the girls to have a couple play dates at the park before it gets too chilly out for such things. 🙂
Aren’t they WAY too cute? 😀
