Owen was super excited that some of his friends were coming over to our house to play. When he looked out into our backyard this morning he said, "It's beautiful Mommy, I love it!" Unfortunately most of his enthusiasm ended there. Owen found it a bit hard to share his things and his mommy with the other kids.
Melanie's son Lex spent the day with his grandparents and she still came to help! Thank goodness! I found it more challenging than expected to look after seven little ones. Overall, I think everyone had a good time. I enjoyed spending sometime with my friends children. Each one is so sweet and precious. We got really messy too which is always fun!

A big THANK YOU to my friend Aly who loaned me the stand, and picnic table, and baby gate, and... ;-)
Owen playing with squirt bottles and trays of shaving cream. We all had fun smashing our hands in it and swirling it all around. Squish!
Chloe painting a picture for her mommy and daddy. This cutie girl LOVES to paint! I think she would have been content to stand at this art easel the entire time!
