We had a date this morning to meet some new friends. I met another mother on a WAVA discussion board. She had mentioned that she lives in Federal Way and was interested in getting together with other families to play. So I took a chance and emailed her. Sheila is very nice. She has three children: Allison (9), Ryan (7), and Emily (4-1/2). We made arrangements to meet up at Steel Lake park this morning at 10:30am.
I was skeptical of the day when I left the house. It was COLD and foggy... very foggy. But we took a chance and headed out. We got there a bit early and about five minutes later, they pulled in. We were the only people playing at the park today. Can't imagine why no one else would want to play outside in the foggy, 39-degree freeze! But we actually had fun on the play structure there. When we were done with that, we walked out onto the boardwalk and watched the ducks. Too bad we didn't take any bread to feed them!
We had a great time and I think maybe we have some new playmates! We both agreed that we would like to get together again and play sometime!
Here are some pictures from the day. (Wouldn't you know as I look out the window now that it's clear skies, sunny and gorgeous! You'd never know by looking out there now that these pictures were taken a mere three hours ago! Ya gotta love the unpredictability of Washington weather!)
