Mommies play date

Last night we organized a mommies play date in the back yard. After all, even mommies need play time, right? We all hang out watching our kids together, but yet rarely get to actually talk much less relax during that time. So we thought it would be fun... and it was! We set up a canopy, chairs, a lantern, bug candles and a table to hold all the food.... and there certainly was a lot of fabulous food... with some adult mommy beverages as well (LOVED the Bellini Alyssa!). Not bad for pulling it together in a couple days... which goes to show you, never underestimate what moms can do in a short amount of time with resources they already have!

We had a lot of fun talking about all kinds of [adult... for once] things and just enjoying each other's company.

Ethan was very curious about the event, looking out the window at the set up and seeing the moms come. He wanted to know why were doing this. I told him mommies needed to play too. He said he wanted to go, but I told him that it was just mommies. Whose mommies he wanted to know and as I listed them he said "all my friend's mommies?" I still want to come he said. Apparently this was the conversation at a few of the houses as well. They never want to miss out on anything. But he also wanted to know how it went this morning. So cute.

Thank you ladies, that was a wonderful time.
