Saturday night we had a dinner date, but not the romantic kind. It was more of a play date with dinner thrown in as a bonus. One of Bryan's high school friends, Julie, and her family recently moved back to town after living in Indiana. They have two lovely children, Emma, who is five and Gael, who is two, just a few months older than Jonathan. Another of Bryan's friends from high school, Sean, came, too, along with his adorable kiddos, Cate, four, and Henry, who is a mere eleven days younger than Jonathan. It was really nice to see them play together! Jonathan was particularly happy that there was a train table involved, validating my Jonathan-needs-a-train-table-from-Santa obsessiveness.
The three amigos:
Jonathan and Emma riding around on a semi truck. I am sure it wasn't designed for this purpose, but they enjoyed it nonetheless:
Jonathan pretending to eat dinner while actually holding out for dessert:
Jonathan and Henry watching what I think was Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin. At least I HOPE that is what it was as I am a huge Snoopy fan and Jonathan really seems to be enjoying it:
And here is how you get five children under six to sit still while five adults try to eat dinner--mass quantities of cookies!!
We had a great time and hope that Julie and Leonel will be kind enough to invite us again! Thanks guys!
