We set up the lawn chairs- Jackson made several friends,
and spent hours playing in the sandbox...
Taylor joined him for a while (until I had to rescue him from himself).
He ate handfuls of sand... after each one he'd grimace, then grab another and shove the sand into his mouth.
and Taylor took to driving the car like a pro...
He had each of us pushing him around the yard... even several of the older children took turns giving him a spin around.
I was amazed at the amount of time he sat in that car- whether it was moving or not. He turned the wheel as if it actually steered the car, a smile on his face the entire time!
With the music in the background (as I do not play...) we settled in for a peaceful afternoon. There were groups of players set up in various nooks of the yard and overflow parking lot. The dinner was chopped BBQ (Yum!!) with a huge variety of potluck sides and desserts. There was a funny version of Old MacDonald that I'm struggling to remember now.. but it had a stuttering horse, a narcoleptic pig, and a split-personality chicken/duck... had us laughing! Below is a video clip from one of the groups playing on Saturday:
