Just had an outdoor play date at my house. Seven moms and their kiddos running around. We painted with food colored ice cubes. I ran out of food coloring so I also made tang ice cubes. The kids ended up sucking on them rather then painting with them. Not that I'm really surprised by that!! I also had the baby pool filled and a tarp out to use as a slip-n-slide. I don't think our preschoolers really "got" how to run and slide on it yet. It was fun to see them run around on it though.
We had some lunch. A good way to get rid of left overs from my party this weekend. The kids all managed to sit down for a short period of time to eat. They were having too much fun playing to really sit for too long.
There was very little mess to clean up. A little bit of food to put away and some toys in the yard. That's the way I like it. Also found out while cleaning that a friend is in the ER. Here's hoping they can figure out what's wrong. We're all antsy and dying to know that she's OK!
Now I am crashed on the bed, while "L" sleeps, hoping I get my energy back up for this afternoon. We're going to buy a new car for ourselves. It will replace the one that got hit a couple of weeks ago at a stop light. Gotta thank the insurance company for part of our down payment! Wish us luck!!
