Jorja's First Date...

Okay, Okay - so, technically it wasn't a date but I had to get you interested somehow because this could be one of the funniest (and fun) play dates I've had thus far - and hopefully you will see it captured on camera below! You might remember from a previous post me talking about our friends Katie and Cole that we met through one of our "Mommy & Me" groups. Since our first meeting and play date we have been able to get together quite a bit and are having such a great time together. Katie & I have determined though that our children have a love/hate relationship with one another - and it is quite humorous for Katie & I to watch. They love to imitate each other and are always curious about what the other is doing! And while they like to get close enough to each other to make sure the other one is legit and doesn't get out of sight - they also don't want to get SO close they actually have to share! :) At any rate - one day Katie and I decided to meet up at Peter Piper Pizza. I had never been there but had heard it was pretty cheap (which I love!) AND had some fun play things for little kiddos. While not all the toys were for kids Jorja's age they did have a few "rides" that were real winners...

They had small carousel-like ride that Jorja seemed to enjoy although I was paranoid the whole time she would fall off but that is neither here nor there. :) This picture is terrible of me but Jorja is SO cute and happy on the carousel, I had to post it! :)


They also had a fun ice cream truck ride that Jorja LOVED! She turned the wheel and acted like she was driving it and had the best time as that truck went back and forth - I actually had a hard time getting her out of it. She would have played in that thing all day if I'd let her!


Because Jorja was having such a great time in the truck, Katie and I thought it would be great for Cole to get in and ride with Jorja. The second we put Cole in there (who wasn't too sure he really wanted to ride in the first place) Jorja immediately started BAWLING and PUSHING him OUT! Obviously, then Cole starting BAWLING and naturally Katie and I started LAUGHING our heads off. It was HYSTERICAL!! As you can see Jorja was LESS than thrilled about Cole infringing on her territory. (seriously, every time I look at these pictures I laugh out loud just thinking about how funny this scene really was - I wish you could have been there, oh my!)


To give the kids a break after their meltdown we took them over to another ride - the Nascar Race Car - and they both seemed to really enjoy it - especially when they rode it ALONE! :) Jorja didn't really try to "drive" this car as much as she did the ice cream truck but rather took the "cool chillin" route...


And what kind of parents would Katie & I be if we didn't at least TRY to get the kids together again? We thought since they both really enjoyed this ride that they could get in together and go on their first "car date"... And well...

as you can see, it went over like a fart in church. We had barely even set Cole in the car before Jorja started screaming her head off - which of course made Cole follow suit. See how they like to imitate each other?? HA! Once we turned the car on and it started moving they were MUCH more tolerant of each other (although if you click on the picture and look closely you can still see the tears on their faces - too funny). And actually, by the end of the "car date" Jorja had her hand on Cole's leg... and thus continues their Love/Hate Relationship! :)

I am still laughing! I love the one where he looks like he's screaming to get away. Were you "boy crazy" Becky? I was, and so now I wonder if that's my daughter's destiny (doom, whichever).HAHA!
