The First Playdate Adventure

I'm going to quickly here tell my little adventure of today.
Lo had her very first playdate with her cute little friend Sage at 10:00. I decided "hey, it's a beautiful day, and they only live a minute away. Why don't we all walk?" And so we did. After I dropped the oh so excited child off to play, I took the long way home with B, enjoying the nice day. Then I got home to discover that I had locked myself out. I had closed the garage door, knowing that I had unlocked the deadbolt on the front door. But apparently the handle was still locked. And our garage door code doesn't work. Locked out. No diapers. Hungry baby. Fantastic.
I called Bryan, so incredibly embarrassed, and he said he'd come home and let me in. So I headed off to Kalisa's house where Lauren was playing, and instead decided to take this opportunity to explore a little of what Riverton had to offer in my neck of the woods. And I knew that Mya would be much better in the stroller than out. I walked for almost an hour until Bryan got home, and I have to say, I made good time for where I went.
It was fabulous to be able to enjoy walking for almost an hour in the peace and quiet of just me and Mya, who didn't make a peep the entire time.
Thanks again, Kalisa & Sage! Lauren came home happy & exhausted - just the way I like it!

sounds like a wonderful day. i wish i could come take an hour long walk with you guys in the sunshine. i think that's my idea of heaven. a walk every afternoon.

ps. i loved your comment, "im a chicken, too". thanks for loving me even though i'm so dang quirky & weird. maybe, we can post our embarrasing stuff together. i'll call you & we can go "1-2-3-PUBLISH!"

love you lady.

ps. i realize i say "love you" to everyone a lot. my brothers get sick of it. ;)

Playdates are the best! You can get rid of the little monsters for a short time, hopefully they come home tired and take a nap for a bit and then you get a happy toddler the rest of the day! YAY for playdates! Oh, and, YOU ARE A KNUCKLEHEAD! I can't believe you locked yourself out! LOL!! Still laughing about it! But at least you got to tour the hood and get more familiar with it!

I still say you should have come over and hung out with me, but I also know how nice a long walk is with out children hanging all over you.

The girls had a great time, we'll have to do it again soon!
