Today we had a 10:00 am play date with Christine and her wonderful kids. We had the best time. Christine is quite the cook. She made brunch for everyone. I wasn't able to partake in any of it unfortunately, but the kids ate well! Christine made toast, big pancakes with chocolate chips in them and an awesome egg with potato, sausage and cheese casserole. Ping asked for seconds because she was so in love with the egg dish. Anything with sausage works well for Ping.
For the most part, everyone behaved themselves really well. Ping is over tired from all the excitement of the last few days and so she was a little weepy when she had her feelings hurt. She was just being really sensitive. It was over within minutes. Yamira couldn't stop flitting around with all the excitement of the dog and the kids getting together and Manny actually did pretty well playing with everyone. He was in love with Christine's older son TJ. Manny didn't want him to leave his side. Yamira didn't either for that matter.
We had a wonderful time catching up. We don't see each other nearly often enough. She and her husband have four kids and are expecting baby number 5. I can't wait to meet the new baby. Christine also home schools the kids and works when there are hours available at her job. So she is a busy lady. It was so good to see them all today. Nice way to spend a few hours on our vacation week. I didn't get any pictures of the kids playing unfortunately, but I got a few pictures of their adorable puppy Monk. I included them in a post that I did earlier today. They are trying to re-home him because they don't have the time to spend with him right now. He is a love bug.
Hope you are enjoying this holiday week.
