I took them to the park for their play date, and it was awesome. A thing to behold. I still smile when I think about it.
The amount of giggling didn't quite rival Ginger's birthday party, but it was pretty constant and impressive.
I know it's kind of hard to tell from this photo, but they really do like each other.
As they sat to share a snack, they got to practice their adult-like kid conversations. It was truly fabulous.
Especially the portion that revolved around the graham sticks.
Evie: "Mmmmm! These are really good!"
Bud (says very knowingly): "I know! They're like bark chips, only tastier!"
I just about died when Evie had some hair blow in her face and Bud brushed it out of the way for her, giving her cheek a caress as he did so. So tender. (Yikes!)
A change of snack-eating venue, for more privacy (should I be giving them more privacy?!?)...
Bud and Evie spent a lot of time on the swings, too, switching constantly to face the same way and then opposite ways. At one point they were swinging side-by-side, in tandem, and Bud proclaimed, "We're married!" (Double yikes!) He must have learned that one from his sisters.
Needless to say, the play date was a huge success! They are already making plans for the next one. I can't wait.
