So about the playdate-- on my birthday, we planned a giant playmate at my house. My brother said something like "only a mother would invite 10 little kids to her clean house, before noon, on her birthday"- which just made me chuckle. My oh my how things change when you add small people to your brood :)
So around 9:30, birthday morning, the minivans and SUV's began arriving:
Danielle and Reed (plus baby Morgan in utero), along with cupcakes and birthday cake batter rice krispy treats (yum!)
Lisa and Haven, and baby Calder is utero.
Emily and Cole, Gavin, and Kendall plus baby in utero
Anna, Elizabeth Grace, and Evie
And my new friend Sara and her daughter Sadie. We randomly met at our local park and God SO wanted us to be friends- we're like the same and we kept running into each other until we changed contact info!
Meet the kids-- ALL 3 years old or under!
We played inside, we played on the driveway with our riding toys, we picnicked in the back yard, and we had a little birthday party :)
Here are the before and after pictures.... my house before playtime:

And here are the after pictures :)
And once everyone left and my babies went down for their naps, it only took me like 20 minutes to clean up. It was such a fun time, with fun moms and adorable children. We hope to keep doing it!
P.S. This is NOT an exclusive group, so if you live nearby, let me know if you want an invite to the next play time :)
