Play Dates Commence

With Kyla away at school all day, Gavin and I are setting up dates with friends to play. We had our first one of the school year, and had Dominique, Truitt, and Finley over for lunch. Dominique and I met while sweating beside each other in stroller strides when our boys were babies, she was on my walking team as we competed last year, and I was there taking pictures at Finley's birth. Needless to say, we've bonded pretty well:) Truitt and Gavin are close in age (a couple of months apart) and get along fabulously. We do have to do some gentle reminders every once in while about sharing, but for the most part, they are great together!

After lunch, we went outside with plans to pick blackberries. Dominique set her bowl down for a moment and the bowl was quickly confiscated and the contents eaten at amazing speeds.

Finley fell asleep in the sunshine, listening to Dominique and I catch up on each other's lives.

Needless to say, she didn't get many blackberries, but I did fill up her bowl with garden goodies to take home. We have plans to see them again in a couple of weeks, fun times! Thanks so much for hanging out with us today friends!

What great pics you got! I feel honored that we were your first play date of the year! We had so much fun and Truitt was asking to go back to "Gavin's house" all night! See you soon dear friend!
