One of the many things that I love about warmer weather is that we always have more play dates. It seems like we kind of lock ourselves inside during the winter, and then pack in all of our playing in the warmer days.
I love getting together with friends and hanging out while we watch our kids do the same. In this case we got together with new friends. We made new friends at the library a couple of weeks ago, and when we saw how well Sydney played with them we exchanged numbers. A week or so later that new friend said she was meeting a friend at the park, and invited us to come along.
I am so glad that we did because we made even more friends. It was a gorgeous day, and the kids all had so much fun together. None of them know each other very well, but that doesn't matter when your kids playing in the sand. They never seem to meet a stranger, and sometimes that is an amazing thing. I know that we all love making new friends.
We will definitely be having more outdoor play dates at the park in the near future. I love warm sunny days!
