Thousand Word Thursday: Play Date Edition

Don't be jealous, but this photo was taken last Friday (on our second snow day) at Ann of Ann's Rants house! We had an great time, the kids romped in their basement (the best play space I've ever seen in someone's house!) and we enjoyed a nice cup of tea over laughs. At what would end up being the end of the playdate, she gave the kids a giant ball of homemade play dough. I marveled that she would give five boys free reign with play dough, but she pooh-poohed me and said it was a snap to clean up afterwards because the little bits that fall on the floor dry and then can be swept right up. Okaaaaaay, I wavered. After about ten minutes of play, when play dough started flying as CC taught her delightfully innocent eldest to blow pretend play dough SNOT out of his nose.... well, she realized why I was so incredulous. :)

Sorry, Ann!! Hope none of play dough got in your rugs! We can make chocolate chip cookies with the kids at my house for our next play date to make up for the play-dough debacle.

The above photo is of four of the kiddies at play, the one to the left is CC, covered in pretend snot. Charming, I know!
