The other day I wrote about how motherhood has taught me about a go-with-the-flow spirit. Well, that came into play the other night when we had friends over for Game Night. A couple of the guys wanted to play corn hole, so the party moved from the kitchen to the back yard. I should probably mention that there were seven kids ranging from 4 years old to 3 1/2 months. Five of those seven are very mobile, so they were immediately attracted to the sand + water table, plastic pool and small slide. We hadn’t intended on swimming or playing in sand, but that didn’t stop them or us mothers.
Cate never really made it into the pool, but as you can see above she had her moments in the sand. Luke + Pierson, who are both 2, ended up swimming in pink Dora Little Swimmers after their clothes got wet from them jumping in the pool.
There are more pictures from Game Night here.
And, yes, we actually ended up back inside to play Pictionary. Maybe everyone was just eaten up by mosquitoes.
