When Reid stayed at "Nana's" this past school year he was able to make a friend with her grandson, Grant who is two. Grant's mom Shaina is another stay at home mom and would come up at the end of the day (they live right down the road from Nana's house) and bring Grant. Sometimes Grant would just come up and play with Reid, which I loved! The boys got to be pretty good friends, as well as the adults. Mark and I would spend time talking to Dustin and Shaina when we went to pick Reid up and struck up a pretty good friendship. After coming home, I knew I couldn't let that die, and so Shaina and I decided to start having play dates with the boys! It was the best decision ever. Grant and his brother (born a 3 weeks before Owen) Reese will come over to our house to play or vice versa. This has been a great way for them to get interaction, learn how to be friends, and give us moms some adult time as well!!!!
We also enjoy meeting at different parks, packing a lunch, and letting the boys loose! Good nap time insurance in my book! We have a blast watching the big guys play and run and jump and just be boys! I am so ready for cooler weather so their little faces won't get so red! We are so grateful for new friends and this sweet time in life. It is busy, it will get busier, but we are loving it and soaking it all up, because it will be gone so soon.
