Summer is finally here and it feels to already be slipping through my fingers! I’m trying to find all the summer outings that exceed a toddler’s level of activity while still maintaining my own level of activity. ???? Ya feel me… Thankfully I can usually convince a girl friend to come along and *poof* we have a play date du jour! This little friend of ours, Cooper, you may remember his cuteness from our visit to the pumpkin patch last year?? These two blondies are a hoot together!! Cooper is a little over a year older than Brooks and their age difference shows (i.e. level of understanding, following directions, and ‘sharing’). He is very good at ‘being the boss’ and laying down some ground rules for the day, while Brooks is very good at challenging ‘said’ rules and seeing how far he can push Coop into annoyance. It’s quite entertaining, well, for me at least. ????
