Not your average playdate

The donkeys from Morning Bray Farm were supposed to come over for a playdate on Sunday, but sometimes some things don't go the way you plan. George and Alan received their spring vaccinations Friday night, and both had adverse reactions. We all agreed they didn't need the excitement that five extra donkeys would bring. They're both okay now, so please don't worry. But instead of a playdate with a bunch of donkeys playing in the pasture, we had a playdate with a bunch of alleged adults.

How many margaritas does it take to fly a kite?

We'll just say "more than one."

Lucy: These people are clueless. I'd better help Danni.

Lucy: I'll hold the string while you go get the chips, ok?

It is impossible to fly a kite without smiling. 

It is also impossible for some people to fly a kite without executing stylish dance moves.

And it is also impossible to get the kite and the kite flyer in the same picture. I need a wider lens.

Hank: I wish she would sit back down and feed me pretzels.

Hank: If she smiles any bigger, she's going to hurt herself.

Hank: Go fly a kite.

Lucy and the boys may not have had as much fun at this playdate as they usually do,

but the adults made up for it.

You know the playdate is over when the kite crashes into a pile of poop.


  1. The last picture show was quite a surprise. Looks like you had lots of fun this weekend and beautiful weather to boot.
    Best always,

  2. Looks like a fun time for all.

    Am I the only one amazed that there was even ONE pile of poop for the kite to crash into? ;)

  3. so many smiles so much fun... i feel happy just watching from my chair... now i have to figure out where all that poop could have come from.. LOL

  4. I love all the giant smiles! Good for the soul!

  5. While I would have (as always) loved to see a donkey play date....I am even more delighted to see the smiling faces of such fun loving adults. You guys are so cute together. Thanks for the extra wide smile and warmed heart this morning. Just delightful, Oma Linda

  6. I was looking forward to seeing the MB kids, but it looks like plan B was fun for all.

  7. Just taking a little break to go to my happy place. I haven't smiled and laughed that much since then.... I know you miss your play dates with Justina and Don....
