Monday update

The play date with Liam's new friends was great! Of course the weather didn't cooperate (it is the Maritimes after all!) Within 5 minutes of arriving and heading to the back yard to play, huge black clouds rolled in, thunder shook the house and the skies opened up!

So the played inside. The kids are a 7 year old girl and an 8 year old boy. They all had stuff in common (playing secret spy, hide'n'seek', Power Rangers and cars) and played well together. The hour was over quickly, with phone numbers exchanged and promises to do it again soon.

And since it is the Maritimes, the weather cleared up by 3:00 and was hot and sunny again. Liam and I set up the obstacle course and he had fun running through it a few times before his next set of friends arrived.

However when they got here the kids all decided to just do the Slip'N'Slide portion of the course and had a blast! After an hour we had to stop them and bring them in because they were starting to turn blue. The down side of the Slip'N'Slide is that it is hooked up to the outdoor hose, so it's constantly running cold water. These friends and their Dad ended up staying for dinner, so the fun continued in the house.

Needless to say it was a pretty easy bed time last night.
