Then it was playtime! The kids were everywhere and really enjoyed themselves.
On to the VOLCANOES!!!! Courtney and her Izzy and Emmy hosted a super awesome science playdate at a park. The kids molded homemade play dough into the shape of volcanoes, we helped them dump in loads of baking soda, helped them mix vinegar and the food color of their choice...then the kids poured the vinegar in and WOW! Out it came the lava!!!!....bubbling, fizzing and smoking! It was soooo freakin cool! The kids...and adults did it over and over and over again!
Babies Emmy and Kristopher were there, much to Mia's delight. She's VERY into babies lately...well, one's growing in her mama right now. The Dr. Sears books are very helpful explaining what babies are all about on a toddler level. Mia really digs them.
To planet Erf...as Mia calls our lovely Earth. Erica and her Joey and Anna had us over to learn about our solar system. Erica explained some stuff to the kids, but more importantly explained to me just why Pluto isn't a planet any more...actually, it's a dwarf planet :) Thank, Erica! The kids had fun gluing their planet Earths and cotton to the blue atmosphere, then they added stickers of the other planets...and silver stars! Super COOL!
Mia actually asked Courtney 'may my mama please hold baby Emmy?' Mia got much Emmy time today, and they both just LOVED it!
this final sweet shot was taken by Courtney...miss Emmy's mama
