Emma Sage had a very joyous day today. She had been invited to a playdate at her friend Devany's, but because Rick was heading out, and Otto had friends over, we invited Devany come come play on the river with us. As we were heading out for our outing, Emma Sage's friend Claudia called to see if she could come over to play.
Can you say 'JOY'......this Momma's heart is so full of Joy watching her little girl enjoying her friendships.
Devany and Emma Sage get along so well. I am just so thankful that she lives close by and that her parents and I are encouraging the two to get to spend time together, as they are really beginning to develop a sweet and delightful friendship.
Here are a few pictures from our day.....
Sliding on the rope swing....I was surprised that Emma Sage wanted to go on it again, as yesterday she slipped and fell....but she was eager to try again.
My dear Greta......she is such a great big sister.....
Emma Sage had a blast pulling Devany.....and then the two of them got to sit together and had Greta and Devany's Dad, Ed pull them back and forth.....and back and forth....and back and forth! What a work out!
And then we went for Pizza......what silly little girls "I just LOVE it!"
When we were 'slipping and sliding' earlier [Emma Sage didn't want to use her skates today] so we just did the old 'sliding in your boots' which was so much fun.....but it was wonderful, as there were only about a dozen people enjoying the noon time hours.....
After lunch and I brought Greta [and two of her friends] and Otto and his cousin Michael and his best friend Michael back.......this is what the river looked like from the bridge.........what a fun day for so many in our community. Ah, the joys of childhood!
