I am totally going to cheat here! Miss Niki and Abigail invited us over to swim today and to have lunch. We had such a good time, and Miss Niki was a wonderful hostess and had a great lunch for us. I didn’t even bring one thing because she wouldn’t let me! Miss Niki is such a better blogger than I, so I’ve just copied her blog entry and I’m going to paste it below. She is much more thorough than I am. We are so excited that they have just moved from Crieve Hall to Franklin. Yay! Neighbors again! Thanks for the fun day, gals. Can’t wait to do it again with the men on the Big Green Eggs!
Today we had a swim date with Cole and Chloe, and their mommy, Miss Auburn. What a fun time at the pool, to say the least!!!! Before I begin, not a SINGLE picture. Miss Auburn was upset that she forgot her camera, so Mommy dragged hers along, and low and behold, as they were leaving, we both realized not a single shot… Oh well, the picture probably wouldn’t have told you half of the fun we had!!
We all headed to the pool around 10ish, thinking that was plenty of time to swim a little, grab a lunch back at the house, and be down for nap by one… so we thought…. You were so excited about swimming and talked about it all morning. I mean, why wouldn’t you, it had been a whole 4 days since you’d been in a pool, Miss Waterbug! And, Chloe was super excited, too!! So off to the pool we went. Everyone got in the baby pool, which was great for Mommy and Miss Auburn to catch up, and you would even go sit in the big pool right on the steps, so Mommy was still able to catch up! We all got in the big pool and let me tell you what, that Cole doesn’t have an ounce of fear in him! He was jumping off the edge and swimming to me and wanting to go under, and this is all without his swimmies! Miss Auburn has to keep her eye on him at all times! You were your typical self – watching the big kids play, taking toys that were not yours, and swimming, swimming, swimming. Before we knew it, it was after 12!!! We couldn’t believe it. We were having so much fun, time was flying by! So we gathered our stuff and off we went to eat some lunch at the house. The 3 of you played musical chairs (and musical food) for pretty much all of lunch and then somehow disappeared. We all of a sudden heard you guys upstairs, and then checked on you and you were all 3 playing so good in the playroom, so, to say the least, Mommy and Miss Auburn kept on catching up! You guys played and played and played, and us mommies talked and talked and talked. Finally, we caught a glimpse of the clock, and low and behold it said 2!!! Good gracious time flies with this crew! Miss Auburn started gathering her things and you and Cole ran off somewhere. Next thing we know, he’s got Daddy’s toothbrush and you have Mommy’s just brushing away. I guess it’s good you both like to brush your teeth. Just don’t tell Daddy someone else was using his toothbrush – it will gross him out 🙂
Soon after that it was clear all of you needed a good nap, and after several goodbyes, and a final wave while the garage was shutting, you headed to bed for a nice, long, nap – which you are still currently doing! Mommy thinks she may take a turn at it, too.
Lots of fun today with good friends.
*** Told you Niki was a better blogger than I!
