Play Date

This is our backyard on any given day.
Serene and clean.

On Thursday, I invited Kimmy and the kids over
for a Play Date.
I raced home after work and found them ready to play.

After a while this is what the backyard looked like.
All the toys were out and played with.
Kimmy and Levi swung on "Grandma's swing".

Levi swung on the children's swing.

Grandma played ...


and laughed!

Mommy said, "It's time to go home".

She packed the kids up in the bike carrier.
And I rode with them back to their home.

A Play Date is the best way to end a long day at work.


If you are using a blanket for your picnic, you might want to consider packing a plastic tarp to place under the blanket should the ground be wet or damp. The tarp can be hosed off when you get home and folded up for your next picnic.


  1. Christine, what an absolutely gorgeous day you had! Your grandchildren are such a delight. Don't you love that they live so close you can bike back and forth?

  2. We had so much fun! Love You!

  3. I think that was the perfect day!!
    Glad they live close for you to enjoy!

  4. What a great way to spend your work day, thinking about the fun you'd be having when you got home. I'm glad to see you are getting out and about on your bike - wish I could say the same . . .

  5. So much fun, you have such a beautiful family. Nothing better than the grandkids and a playdate.

  9. That looks like a perfect play date afternoon. I am so happy you have the opportunity to spend such wonderful time with your grandchildren and your daughter. Precious beyond words.

  10. I can almost hear the laughter! You are such a FUN Grandma! I have a feeling you'd agree that there isn't any time that feels more special than when I'm enjoying my grandkids! Sweet post!

  11. What a perfect thing to come home to-a playdate with your daughter and grandchildren. Your yard is beautiful, too!

  12. That was pretty much a perfect afternoon. And you basically wrote a nice little children's book while you were at it. :)
