Play Date with Jill and the girls

Feb. 29, 2008

Leap Year day!

Today Alison and I took the boys to Jill's house and had a great time.  We spent the morning outside watching our kids play together and they all played really well.  Gracie and Lucy are really good girls (way to go Mom). Afterward we decided to have lunch at Sonic.  We thought that it would be cheap, but it wasn't.  I don't think we'll go there again.  Sonic did have a good sized playground that included a huge slide.  Caleb loves slides  but I didn't think he would be daring enough to go all the way to the top, which was like 2 stories up.  Well he was. We went down  together the first time and at the bottom I realized that there was a huge drop, at least 3 1/2 feet.  The second time Caleb and I were going to down together again, but he had a different plan.  He went down the slide all by himself.  I dashed down the slide trying my best to catch up, all the way worrying that he was going to fall off at the bottom.  But he didn't.  He managed to stop right before the edge.  Thank goodness!
After lunch we put the boys on the mechanical cars.  They loved it.  Too bad we ran out of quarters.
