Sunday, Fun Day - The joy of hanging out with new friends

Some days are just more fun than others, and today was a great day! I don't know how long we have been talking about a playdate with our Instagram friends Erica and Ture (@enligt_e) and today it finally happened. The kids played so well together and it's amazing to see what two creative 4-year olds can come up with together. In the span of ruffly three hours they were doctors, truck drivers, chefs, ninjas, sailors and played about a hundred rounds of hide and seek. They also manage to pull together three minor injuries and one puddle accident between the two of them and got muddy beyond belief. The was one disagreement - which was quickly solved with a cinnamon roll - and loads of laughter. 

The silver lining? Erica is an amazing woman and I am pretty sure that I had just as much fun as the kid had with his new friend, Ture. It was not the last time we pulled together a playdate, that's for sure.

Oh, and outfit details is a haphazard bunch of brands. See bottom of this post for details.

Celebrating Easter in Mini Rodini

Easter celebration is in full force at our house. And according to Swedish tradition we dressed the kids as easter witches and went out to collect candy in the neighborhood. The kid had painted his own Easter cards to hand out and was more than a little excited about the whole concept. 

As most four year-olds he loves to dress up and he even sat for some face paint, but when it came to picking out his outfit he was adamant. It was all about the prints. Go bold or go home, no?

Easter is all about Spring and what could fit Spring better than green and yellow. The clover print from Mini Rodini was perfect and when surprisingly well with the yellow snakes from an earlier collection. To top it off, the kid picked out a bowler hat and an old cane left behind by his great grandfather.

He scored a lot of candy but in the end he was most excited about handing out his art. It was a great afternoon, a perfect way to kick off the Easter holiday, and fun way to warm up for the Saturday egg hunt. Hopefully you all are having a fun Easter holiday as well.
