We *heart* Art! (and Mommy friends!!!)

On Friday, about 20 moms and 20 toddlers met together at Kids ‘N’ Art for a super-sized play date with an art project!  Let me just say that Kids N Art did a FABULOUS job of keeping 20 toddlers (plus a few infants!) entertained!  First, the kids were able to play in a room with toys, musical instruments, etc. and then they moved into another room where they did their art project.  I was surprised, but Reid was way into his art!  He sat there and painted, glued, and loved doing his handprint.  The art project was the perfect amount of time because right when Reid announced that he was “all done” it was time to go back in to the other room so the kids could play some more.  Reid’s art project now hangs on our refrigerator and he is so proud of it!!!

I am so thankful to have so many Mommy friends in the area!  Who knew that when Matt and I moved so far “north” (as we felt like we were doing) that it would be the absolute best move because I have made so many lifelong friends.   I love how we can organize a playgroup and have so many people there!  We’ve also started a Mom’s Night Out twice a month where we all get to actually have a full conversation!  If any of you “Houston people” ever get the inkling, I know the perfect place for you to move and call home!  ;)

This looks so fun, Meredith! And Reid is too cute sitting there doing his art project. I only hope that when my baby is born I can find a playgroup as great as yours. Hopefully there are other "Houston people" out there having a baby when I am! :-)
