Park Date and Mic-nick!
We packed a picnic lunch and headed to Eden Praire this morning to meet Graham and Amelia ("meelya") for a park playdate! Melissa has found a perfect fenced-in play area that is just right for three busy toddlers. For a while the kids all did their own things-- Alex headed straight up the play structure, Graham worked on digging himself a tunnel out of the enclosure, and Amelia sat in the woodchips, sorting the good ones from the bad. Once in a while, however, they were all three in the same spot at the same time. After our 'mic-nick' lunch, we decided to throw caution to the wind and attempt a two family, three kid Costco trip! It went amazingly well, thanks to the pretzel sticks that Mama Olson had in her purse. Alex was so exhausted by her busy morning that she fell asleep before we even left the Costco parking lot!
