Our BIG Playdate

When 5 mommies get together with 11 children under the age of 5 for a only seems right to celebrate the occasion with a little morning cocktail.

My friend Sarah suggested we have mimosas and let me tell you...they hit the spot!!

It's creeping up on 102 degrees right now in IL, which is why we started our playdate outside...when it was still cool enough to handle. The kids didn't mind the heat AT ALL!

And honestly...neither did we. Those cocktails really kept us cool :-)

Even baby Gus was content outside in the shade :-)

He was busy watching all the crazy kids running around the yard. Some were busy sliding...

Some were busy cleaning...

And some were busy digging in the mulch.

But when the clouds parted and then sun really started beating down...even the kids were sick of the heat. So in we went to our basement playroom. It's nice and cool and the kids can trash the place all they want :-)

Nolan cooked up some food for everyone...

Here is one of his happy customers.

These two crack me up.

Such goofballs.

So while the boys cooked, Evie took a horsie ride...

Addie and Nia played fashion design school...

Presley took a cruise...

And Audrey did some bouncing. With her purse.

And then it was lunch time!!! Figuring out how and where to feed 11 kids was a little tricky. But these cafeteria style plates from Target ALWAYS come in handy.

And the best way to get them to all eat together is to have a carpet picnic!!

The kids ate for about 4 minutes before it was time for dress-up and popsicles. I'll tell's a good thing they are all so darn cute :-)

The kids had a blast together today and I am so happy that we decided to do this. All of us mommies even got to sit down around the same table and enjoy our lunch. That NEVER happens. Ever. So it was a rare treat :-)

Thanks so much for joining me today Katie, Aimee, Dana and Kris!


  1. How fun! Perfect hostess :)

  2. This is too cute! Reminds of my mommies group when I lived in Orlando. I think there were around 20 of us. Playdates were always crazy but so much fun!
