Now that Spring is upon us, we are venturing out of the house more often and going to a lot more playdates with our awesome playgroup. 
We had fun at our St. Patrick’s Day playdate where the kids got to search for treasure.
And then we had a playdate to celebrate the 2nd birthday of our playgroup.  We’ve only been members for about 7 months, but have met several new friends both for Cheyenne and myself and I am so glad we joined. 
We also went to a playdate where the kids made Mother’s Day handprint bouquets.  They were adorable and so fun!! 
Cheyenne and I hosted our first playdate the other day and it was pretty fun.  We hosted a bubble playdate at a park near our house and there were 3 other moms that joined us.  I had gotten huge bubble wands and trays for each child along with a small bottle of scented bubbles.  I had also gotten a bubble machine, but as is typical, I was running a little late and so I grabbed the batteries to take with me and put in once we got there.  What I didn’t plan for was having to have a screwdriver to open the panel to put the batteries in.  Needless to say, we weren’t able to use the bubble machine.  But the kids had a  great time with their huge wands and trays of bubbles.  I think they worked better for kids this age because they weren’t the tiny wands that come in the bottles of bubbles that they have to blow.  There was the perfect amount of wind (sometimes pretty strong) that all the kids had to do was hold their wands up and the wind would blow the bubbles for them! 
Then today, we hosted a playdate at a new park that we haven’t been to before.  Coffee Park is a great park and Cheyenne had a blast.  I really like the playground area because it is that squishy soft padded playground flooring instead of gravel or wood chips.  I have lost count of the number of times I have come home after a playdate and changed Cheyenne’s diaper full of wood chips.  🙂   We had 4 moms attend this morning, which was down from 11 that originally RSVPd, but the sky looked like it could fall at any moment and we were expecting rain, but we went and luckily it didn’t rain on us. 

So we are so glad that we joined this playgroup and even more excited that it’s warming up and we are able to get out and about!!
