Reagan & I were invited for a playdate at the home of Shane & April Ware. So, last Friday we ventured out for a little social time. In attendance were several other children, all of them older than Reagan, & their moms. Reagan was a bit weary of the noise & activity a throng of children generate, & I found the experience to be an effective form of birth control.
She spent some time exploring Cooper's Toy Story themed table:
She hung out with Elizabeth (who was wearing an awesome velour track suit!), the attendee nearest her age:
She played a little piano in the dining room:
And stayed close to her Mama when she saw this:
She initially wouldn't venture past the hallway:
Until she discovered Cooper's chair, which is quite similar to her chair. She made herself at home:
Cooper was a bit concerned:
He sought my help:
And then again tried to reason with Reagan:
A compromise was reached:
Ava wanted to hold Reagan before we left . . .
The visit to the Ware's home was a good opportunity to talk to Reagan about accepting those who are different from us, even when they make questionable choices:
Shane & April are wonderful people, & gracious to open their home to so many rowdy children. Shane, a devoted husband who accompanies April to the Twilight films, has some pull at the local theater & rented out an entire theater for a midnight showing of Breaking Dawn, Part I, when it opened back in November (which shot him straight to the top of my favorite people list) . . . so, despite their odd affinity for the Hogs, I still love them both.
