Oh Happy Day!
Well, it started out that way....Princess and I got up and ready for our day.
We put all the seedlings into the garden and took care of the kitties.
We showered and had a bath and combed our hair. We drove away to meet
our good friends so she could drive some more (Thanks Bec!) and take us to
celebrate our other friend's son's 5th Birthday! The weather was perfect, the children
were pretty close to it as well. Then we got in the car to drive home and all the good behavior
they displayed in the park started to disintegrate in the way so many of us Moms have seen
far too often at the end of a sunny park play date.
The three kids were hot and tired and cranky. The Mom's could not find their way home.
Sure, it's funny now, but none of our passengers were the least bit amused all the way home.
As we got to within spitting distance of our parked car, Princess asked to see my hand, I put it over the seat,
she hit me on my elbow, and my ring went flying off my finger into the back of my friend's car.
You should have seen the four of us pulling bags and extra clothes and all the other paraphernalia
us Mom's carry in our vehicles. The little one just watched from her stroller (I'm pretty sure she was smirking).
Oh well..they'll come across it one day doing the laundry or during a diaper change at the soccer fields.
Princess and I thanked them for the ride and we left for home. Farmer Dad was waiting for Mexican food
to celebrate Cinco de Mayo. It was too late and we were too tired and cranky to go out, so F.D.kindly
went to pick up instead. I'm heading to bed after posting a couple of pics of the kids having fun.
