Yesterday we were lucky to have a fun visit from our special friends.
Melissa, Linda, Danielle and I have been friends since we had our first children all within a couple of month of each other. Unfortunately, Danielle was unable to come to our get together yesterday as she is going away for the long weekend (lucky her!). I always love it when we get together, our kids are usually going through the same stages and its good to share our coping strategies with one another!
Oscar just LOVES playing with Riley and Zoe, he talks about them all the time and he actually plays WITH them when they get together. I think he feels totally comfortable with them because he has known them since he was born and has spent time at each of their houses and grown up with them.
We were having a picnic lunch outside soaking up the lovely sunshine when we noticed that the little munchkins had disappeared and were suddenly very quiet - every mother knows that when two-year-olds go quiet that something is not right! We could hear mischievous giggles behind the big bush and this is what we discovered...
The boys were having the time of their lives emptying dirt out of the pots and spreading it all over the ground and their faces! Zoe wasn't really in on the mess-making but was laughing at the boys and daintily rubbing her feed into the dirt! It was so funny, luckily there were no plants in the pots, just old dirt. Two-year-olds will be two-year olds!
After being cleaned up...
Zoe helping Linda finish off her vanilla slice...she just couldn't get enough (Zoe, I mean!)
Riley having a quiet moment -pretty rare, isn't it Melissa?!!
Lil had such a sleepy day yesterday. I felt like I hardly saw her, she just slept and slept and slept. In the afternoon I put her under her playgym after a feed and within 5 minutes she was fast asleep! I didn't want to disturb her so just left her there and she slept for another hour. Perfect timing with Oscar in bed, I managed to have a little snooze on the couch too.
