A Super Fun Playdate

We met up at the park yesterday with a bunch of friends for a playdate with all of the kiddos.  It was loads of fun.  So much fun that when we left, Johnny fell asleep in the car about .5 miles from the park.  And he slept for over 3 hours! 

Ready for picture overload?

We parked in the wrong parking lot to begin with, and I couldn’t coax Johnny back into the car.  We wound up walking quite a ways to the swings.  Much to Johnny’s dismay, a few geese accompanied us on our walk.  He is not a big fan of animals.  He loves reading about animals, but if he sees one in person, and they move in his direction, he freaks out.  Made for an interesting walk.

Jessie’s little boy, Finn, has a tendency to break off in a run trying to escape (much like someone else I know.  Ahem.).  She found a nifty spot to keep him contained.  I’ll have to remember this one!

Johnny was really stoked when Fisher got to the park.  Here is he is trying to boss Fisher around and convince him to come down the slide with him.

How sweet is Miss Ruby??

Not sure what was wrong, but her cry face is pretty darn cute.

I figured getting a picture of everyone was futile with 5 adults and 9 kids.  This was as close as I got.

Little Elliott had just woken up from his nap.  He was so stoic the whole time!

Zoya’s haircut was so stinkin’ cute!  It made me really want to cut my hair off short.

Whew!  How was that for a huge photo dump?  Nothing like a fun day at the park with beautiful weather and great friends!

Celebrating Sissy

Yesterday was Kristin’s birthday!  We hung out all day, and had so much fun.  I didn’t take my regular camera, but thought I’d share some pics from my phone.

Went went to Adam’s Mountain Café in Manitou Springs for breakfast.  I didn’t take many pictures there… Johnny was kind of a handful while we were there.  I did get a picture of her opening one of her presents.

After Adam’s, we played around on the little rides near the arcade.  Johnny commandeered the rocket (or wock, as J calls it) and kicked anybody out who tried to come near.

Right as we were trying to leave, Johnny got his head stuck in the window of the rocket.  It’s all fun & games until someone gets their head stuck in a rocket!

If you were in Manitou yesterday morning, guaranteed you heard a shrieking bug making his way down the street.

After Adam’s, we met up with our friend Melanie and her little girl, Onora, at the Manitou pool.  After, of course, we made a slight detour down the slide.

A great time was had by all.

This is what Johnny did the. entire. time.  He is saying “to infinity and beyond!”.

When we left, he was SO tuckered out he fell asleep mid-bite.

Kristin & the kids came over for dinner after naps… This was my first allergen-free cake (no gluten, butter or eggs)!  It was actually quite delicious.

What a fun day to celebrate Kristin!
