Play date Mishap... turned fun!

So, not too long ago I decided to bite the bullet and join a "Mommy and Me" Play group. I figured it was about time for Jorja to have someone other than me to play with and I needed a little bit more adult interaction as well. This group has several things going on throughout the week so you can just pick and choose what you want to attend. A lot of the events take place during Jorja's nap so when I finally found one that took place during lunch I jumped at the opportunity to attend. It was a "Silly Sunglasses Picnic in the Park" which sounded right up my alley! Well, I show up to the play group with my silly sunglasses and all to find NO ONE at the park... After driving around for about 30 minutes Jorja and I just decided to make the most of the play date gone bad. We pulled out the blanket, our chick-fil-a, and of course - our silly sunglasses and we had a ball with just the two of us!! Jorja LOVES being outside so she just played up a storm on the blanket and then we went for a walk around the park to see the ducks and enjoy the scenery... I really had such a great time with her and realized we definitely need to have more picnics together. I kind of went picture crazy (of course holding the camera out as best I could to capture our pictures) so, here are a few of my favorites from the day (you can click on them if you want to see a bigger view). I haven't given up on the "Mommy and Me" group - I have another play date scheduled soon... this time maybe I won't wear my obnoxious pink sunglasses so people will actually want to hang out with me... :)



Jorja trying to figure out how to get her chicken out of the box. And her in her silly sunglasses which she had on for about 2.2 seconds...

Here we are in all our silliness!!! :)






I finally found a nice lady at the park with her 2 kids who took our pictures while we were looking at the ducks! What a great day with Jorja!

How fun!! I would have gone and we would have all worn our silly sunglasses.

There are two pics I like best: Jorja trying to get the chicken out of the box and the pic of you two looking at each other. They are so precious!

We are we going to have our play date?

Oh too cute!!! I know how you feel! Have you looked into Kindermusik? I am getting licensed to teach it. I am excited to meet other mommies, plus I'll get paid. :)
