Camaraderie Is Awesome

September 8th was pretty awesome but only AFTER Mom got me out of this awful outfit. Can you believe he sent me over to Miss Anne's in this? I was so embarrassed. What's Dad's thought here? The pants have red and the shirt has read so that means they match? Brutal.

I recently came across this Cabbage Patch kid as I was exploring and I've decided to adopt her. I never realized how much work having a kid would be. It can be so frustrating I could just.... UGH!

I got a break from babysitting that night though because Mom and Dad planned a play date for me with David & Margot Fair. SWEET! When we got over there, D&M were just getting up from a little nap. I felt bad for waking them up but we had playing to do.
One of the cool parts about playing over at someone else's house is playing with all the toys I don't have.
And yes, that's a BALL PIT! I was a little suspect of it but David volunteered to show me how it works. You'd think it's pretty self explanatory but it's not. Like, when the floor is covered with balls, where do you stand? Yeah, you didn't think of that did you?
Even with David's demo, I wasn't convinced so Margot decided to get in to.
I took a closer look but still wasn't sure how they were pulling it off. When I play credenza Fort for instance, sometimes I have to take things out just to get in but there were like a million balls in this fort.
The ball pit wasn't the only totally awesome toy D&M have. They have this mini slide that is PERFECT for kids our size. And as David is demonstrating below, it's was as much fun to walk UP the slide as it was to go down the slide.
Although, I was it doing with shoes on and David was pulling it off in socks. It was pretty impressive and also kind of looked like more fun.

I still wasn't too sure how the ball pit worked but Mom got a little impatient and popped me in through the hole in the top. You can't tell from this picture but I am MAD and didn't stay in there long.
Side note - David had an awesome shirt on: computer, zoom in and enhance.
CIA Future Agent? Whoa, this kid is for realz y'all. You see, D&M have an aunt in the CIA and -- uh oh, wait, I don't think you have the correct security clearance.

At one point Margot decided to take a break from ball pit and slide and headed back to their room to read a book. Mom and I went in to let her know dinner was ready so we all headed into the kitchen... where the Fairs have three high chairs for their two kids... HOW FORTUITOUS!

After dinner D&M broke out ANOTHER cool toy: this collapsible tunnel type thing... which I also avoided.

As the night wore on, I got more and more curious about the ball pit.
And eventually walked in on my own... holding Dad's hand.
And I still hated it.

I found this next set of pictures pretty entertaining. Margot was reading a book and David decided it looked pretty good... and took it. I told Margot the two of us could take him on but she said it was fine. She's a better kid than I!
Right before we left, D&M were getting ready for bed and David showed off one of his new diapers... that look like jean shorts. Hey, that's working smarter, not harder!

I took one last trip down the slide and then it was time for us to head out. I had SO MUCH FUN and can't wait for D&M to come over to my house next time. I'll have my people call your people!


Here's Blogger's "Blog of Note" for this past Friday, September 24th, 2010. It's called Throw Grammar from the Train. I think he just points out grammatical errors other people made which is a bit bizarre (wait, is there supposed to be a comma in there?) However, I do think his blog title is pretty punny.

Remember, you can't take it with you, but you can lick it so no one else can take it when you're gone.

Until Later,
Avery
