Good Old-Fashioned Playdates

My kids are on Spring Break this week. That means we have about 8 days of staying home with nothing much planned. During this break I've noticed that the boys are now old enough to really request playdates often (like every hour on the hour).

I've tried setting up a few things for later in the week with parents that live a bit farther away from us but I've also encouraged the kids to just go out and "see who's around" to play with.

You know what? Nobody is around.
