Lucian's House

Daredevil in a pink silky dress, down the slide she goes... Head First. Then it is off to play Hide and Seek. She loved looking out this front window.

Here she is with Tracey, Lucian's Mommy. We have recently been reconnecting with our good friends.
Mom had been working on finishing a thesis which took up a lot of free time, but now its done and we are up for lots of playing.

On this particular day it was over the Holiday Break when both Daddies had time off of work and could also hang out.
Our friends had moved to a new Apartment which we were super excited to see. It is really nice.
Holly loved playing with the slide at Lucian's house, another friend with an indoor slide.
The kids sit down together to eat a snack. It was really fun seeing Holly and Lucian playing together.
Holly was truly taking the opportunity to assert herself, which she doesn't get to do often. Most of her friends have big personalities ;-)
It was neat to see her initiate some games and play chase with Lucian.
She also really liked checking out all of his fun toys.

Always the funnest part of getting to play at someone else's house. Well that and not having to spend the next two days cleaning up.
Now that we have started school, it is amazing how little time I have to do stuff
But I do want to make a trip to the Exploratorium, California Academy of Science, and Golden gate Park Playground. All favorites of ours.
Meeting in the city I think makes it a little easier for our friends to coordinate so they don't have to come over the bridge
The kids got along really well, the last few times we saw each other they didn't get to actually play.
Seems like they got along so well, Lucian was ready to make his move, but it seems Holly beat him to the punch.

Getting Started

For her Birthday Holly got a Play set from Oma and OpaBut before that could happen we had to basically change the entire yardOnce we cleared the space we had the begin the buildThe entire build took several weekendsWe had Chloe's Dad help us cut the Cement walk and Jack Hammer it to piecesBut then it needed to be cleared away, then we had to lay the tarpEventually we began to build the structure but Rome wasn't built in a dayAnd neither was Holly's park. That didn't stop her from wanting to try it out right awayShe was desperate for the swings but on this night it was the tireShe has been watching Daddy hard at work all dayThis was only the beginning of the work, I will post more another day.

But when you have 500Even if you love them all, I can't post them all so I have to find the best.It is however kind of fun to see the pictures from 6 months agoSeeing how much people have changed in a seemingly short timeIs really long in the life of a childSummer party is always a lot of fun, it is a chance to see everyonePeople who aren't able to come to regular play dates come to summer partyLast year it was at the Pram houseIt is a really fun place to hang out and playHere we are with Angela and little MayaRowan and his dad RyanLittle Miss Sara rolling the Basket ballThis is Theo such a handsome little gentleman!Look Mom, No HANDS!Behind the Pram house is a parkHolly wanted to be outside and could not resist the slideWeee so much fun.
