the play date was a success! seven mommies and 11 kids makes for a quick two and a half hours. seriously. it seemed like as soon as everyone got here it was time to go! i guess that means it was fun. lots of splashing and throwing sticks for the dog and sliding and capri suns and bubble machines and playing house and snacks. i'm so glad we did it! under my covered porch with the fans on it wasn't all that hot either. perfect, perfect, perfect. also, ellie took a bath and is totally crashed out. i bet she's gone for awhile. we'll definitely have to have one again soon. sorry i had dirty dishes in my sink... i just could not work up the motivation to empty and then reload the dishwasher. i know you'll all forgive me.
my only regret: i wish i had pictures!
