One of the great things about summer is all the fun kids get to have outside – just being kids. This weekend, we celebrated at another birthday party, and Abbie had the best time playing outside.
We were celebrating our friends’ son Sawyer, but Sawyer also has an older sister, Ava. We were at her birthday earlier this year, so Abbie remembers Ava (I think). And of course to Abbie, big kids are always more fun. She’s always tried to keep up with them. With the exception of the babies at daycare that she spends her week with, Abbie’s never really had any interest in kids younger than her. To her, the little kids are boring. Even as an infant, Abbie was always watching the big kids, always trying to do what they were doing, and trying to be included in their games. Saturday was no exception.
We got there early, and I’m so glad we did. I don’t know that I’ll ever forget arriving on Saturday. Ava instantly greeted Abbie with a hug, saying “I haven’t seen you in WEEKS!” before leading her away to play. Abbie didn’t even look back at us. After all, the big kids are always more fun, right?
