So then the blob became the landing area for the slide and sprinkler combo.
This change of plan seemed to work out just fine by all accounts.
There was much time for comparison of height, vocabulary, interest in using the potty, hair length, and matchy-matchy potential.
There’s never enough time for kissing J’s sweet and happy chubby cheeks.
There was a little time for crafting things that’ll appear in the coming weeks, and for a quick shoot of a dress review.
There were two trips to Susan’s new favorite frozen yogurt place. The girls loved it because they could play a game where they closed their eyes, spun the tabletop and opened their eyes again to find a new cup of ice cream! There was uncontrollable giggling.
There was time for art. Lots and lots of making with paper and tape and markers and crayons and spin art.
There was a little time for mommy shopping. J wasn’t enthusiastic until…
…we told her we had a 40% off coupon.
T J Maxx yielded some treasures for a photo shoot.
And Adrianna had to see Susan’s favorite thrift store that’s been open for almost a year. Every thrift store should be organized by size and color.
The vintage sheet selection is not to be missed.
J decided a sidewalk near-blowout rescue was required.
Even after the special juice, someone took a while to chill out and cheer up.
But if you’re looking to take a photo of feet, Adrianna is always happy to show off her cute kicks.
Of course, it would’ve been unforgivably rude not to have some fro yo while we were there for the shoot.
Susan had to show off in her circle skirt. There’s a rumor there’s a photo out there somewhere that is a little less modest. It’s a good thing the photographer can be trusted with half-naked photos.
The fantastically amazing Babysitter Laura entertained the kids by letting them help bake cookies…
That the moms later used to make kahlua cookie shakes.
On the last day of togetherness, we met friends for a play date at the mall and had lunch. We applaud the staff for not flipping out when we asked for a table for 4 adults and 10 kids…
Or registering annoyance when we removed all of the steak knives from the utensil rolls.
