Old fashion play!

I LOVE some old fashion play!! I love to see girls get together and play dolls and have tea parties. I love it when kids come up with secret hand shakes and clubs that require codes and passwords to gain access; clubhouses and tree houses; or playing dress-up...there's just something so cool about seeing a child's creativity come out when there isn't technology involved.

Olivia had her best friend Abbey over for some old fashion play! They set up a tea party in the driveway. On the menu was dolphin, octopus and tea.

when it got a little windy, the tea party moved to the bed of Brian's truck that was parked in the garage.

with the guest of honor, dad

Put Olivia on an elevated surface and it quickly becomes a stage! The girls decided that they would play Snow White

Olivia: I'm going to be the evil woman
Abbey: and I'm going to be Snow White

Olivia: (turned to Brian's truck window) Mirror, Mirror on the wall, who's the fairest of them all? WHAT?!? SNOW WHITE?!? I'm going to have to kill her.

Olivia: Ohhhh, Snooow Whiiiiite, Snooow Whiiite I have a lovely apple for you
Abbey: (grabs apple and takes a bite)

WHAM!! Abbey hits the deck!

Olivia: (turns into a prince and kisses Snow White)
Abbey: (comes back to life)

BFFs telling secrets

After the tea party the girls dumped their water in the truck bed, rolled up their pants and stomped around in the puddles.

Oh how I love the story you told with the pictures. It just made me miss being a mom of young kids so badly!:( Enjoy every second, Shawnie. And be so thankful you are at home to enjoy it! I think I'm going to cry!
