On Friday, my good friend Sara, let us borrow her children for a playdate here at our house. The kids had such a great time.
While some laid train tracks & built cities.
Others competed to design the best artillery.
And then there were those who played with a softer approach. But they were too quick and light on their feet. Because when I came to take a picture of the girls playing all they had left for me to find was this:
Dolly had said that I had just missed them and that they were all getting ready to sit down for a spot of tea. She then asked whether I could join her and her striped tiger cub and their other guests while I waited for them to return. Since I hesitated to answer her, I had secretly hoped to find the girls to have returned to the scene by then, to continue their play but it never happened. What with so much for them to do, it didn't surprise me that they never came back. And yet, I politely refused the invitation as I was distracted by a dreadfully sad noise.
That was tragedy calling me out to find this little guy. Why is it that no true playdate is complete without somebody getting hurt? This "not so lucky" little guy just had to be the one this time around. We even captured a tear on his cheek. I'm not sure but think it may have been a bit crocodilian. But then again most of them usually are amphibious. I've always said this little guy has got the best "Boo-Boo" face around. I may just end up having to make a post on only him with a slide show of all his "Boo-Boo" faces. Wouldn't that be a hoot!? But that's another story for another day. And by looking at his face, what Mommy can resist it? I mean, really? This one can't. He is just too darn adorable for this Mommy!
Soon after we got his finger all wrapped up and kissed, he was back "on-the-go" but only after pausing just a moment to capture his battle wound. And, I think if you look closely, that might just be his tear that has run down his cheek. Yep, definitely amphibious.
But that's nothing a popsicle won't fix, right?! At least that's what I always say. And what's more fun than sharing one with your friends?
There now...the more, the merrier!
Oh wait, we wouldn't be complete without mentioning or capturing a moment with this adorable little guy! I think he must be teething again.
All better! Thanks Sara! We all had a blast!
