After seeing Colin play his little heart out at various birthday parties this summer, I decided it was time to start the playdates. It's really a win-win for all parties involved. The kids get to have fun and the parents get to reap the rewards of a worn out, nap taking child!
This weekend Colin got to play with one of my friend's little boy, Silas. The boys hit it off instantly and ran through every square inch of our house. They may have only played with each thing for 30 seconds but I think it's safe to say they tried everything at least once. I was able to get a walk/run in with Sawyer and Wes was able to get some work done with the boys occupied each other. I think the boys had a lot of fun too.
First, the homemade bubbles I attempted to make. Didn't go so well but they still had fun playing in the water.
Then the sidewalk chalk. Every kid likes to draw and use chalk, right?
What? You don't store your chalk in rain boots? Well then you're wasting precious space!
These boots quickly became the object of their affection.
But only one foot fits the magic slipper!
Until later when he decided it'd be just as cool to rock 2 boots.
So there you have it, a recipe for an afternoon of fun for 2 little boys - a play skillet full of ghetto bubbles, a bunch of sidewalk chalk, and a pair of rain boots. Sounds like fun to me!
