Alyzabeth Had A Play Date

AA had a great play time today with neighbors, well almost neighbors :) they live across the river from us. Beautiful Victoria is 25 months old and her handsome older brother is 6 year old Danny. We met their parents through Don & Be. All of us are adopting families.

AA was a little shy at first but eventually popped out and played and had fun. Everyone helped with blowing bubbles and getting her involved. V & D have lots of great toys in their playroom as well as a huge play/swing set in their back yard!

The video below is Danny helping AA with her sliding experience!

Nan & Dan gave us a large bag of Victoria's "hand-me-down's". Outfits, PJ's and Shoes! We love them. So happy to have a new stash of clothes for AA. They also are sending along a box for JM as we plan to see Be and Don soon.

The photo is DH, the child-magnet-SAHD, with all three kids around him..... he's great with kids (and the dog, Maggie)!!
I would say this was a successful PLAY DAY! Thank you Nan, Dan, Danny & Victoria for such a fun time!

And to squeeze in one more line... a big HAPPY BIRTHDAY to DH, Ford...... If you read this post on the 12th, that's his big day!! I love you!! Your first birthday with a gift from daughter AA! All three kids will be celebrating with you on Thursday Dinner. Enjoy!

Nan and Dan said...

So happy you guys came to visit, the kids had a great time!!
happy birthday Ford!!
You don't act a day over 30 :) :)

Dita said...

Holy crow, Nan....you mean Ford is OVER 30?!!!

I figured he must be a child magnet with the kind of patience he showed in the early days of AA.

Looks like the playdate was a major success.

I, too, have a hand-me-down girlfriend who has given me the BEST clothes and shoes for Jade that her daughter barely wore. She's saved me TONS of money! I pass them along to another friend with twins and they just keep going.

Alyzabeth is so cute. I hope to see you guys around Thanksgiving!
