Any chance to have a party or playdate gets a “yes, please” from my kiddos.  I’ve learned over the years that some of the best parties and playdates are the EASY, LOW key kind that happen at the park or right in my own backyard.  Lucky for me, I have lots of kids so family playtime is always kind of like a party and if I just invite over one other family, we’ve got a pretty substantial gang.  

Quaker realizes that family time is important, too, and so when they offered to work with me to have a fun family playdate, I was excited to partner with them.  Of course, Quaker provided the snack (Quaker® Chewy® Granola Bars in fun flavors like chocolate chip, S’mores and oatmeal raisin), which is always good for a great time.  To me, it’s the perfect, hassle-free snack that provides my kids and their friends with the fuel (made with 8 grams of whole grains) they’ll need to play and play and play some more.

Tips for the Best Playdate!

      he, he… *ler* sÃ¥ jeg rister her…. mye frustrasjon pÃ¥ en ga08;#g23n&. og sÃ¥ bilde av den nydelige blomsten!!!! (LIKER bilder!!!!) Klem ;-)*ler* Ja, jeg var en smule sliten og stressa i gÃ¥r, sÃ¥ jeg mÃ¥tte bare fÃ¥ blÃ¥st ut litt 🙂 Og sÃ¥ tenkte jeg at for at de som leser ikke skal bli sure og grinete av Ã¥ lese om min dag, mÃ¥tte jeg jo avslutte med noe pent. Og blomster er alltid pent :)Klem tilbake 🙂

      Ico, Tenho duas questões:1º Depis do Gp da Espanha, quando Barrichello perdeu a corrida por causa da mudança de estratégia de Button e o brasileiro falou cobras e lagartos da equipe, a chefia da Willians disse que era um absurdo o comportamento do piloto e que o demitiria se fosse piloto da equipe. O que mudou para a Willians querer Rubinho na equipe em 2010?2º O que é o tal botão de ultrapassagem da Force Índia que ouvimos no rádio durante o Gp de Monza?Abraço e parabens pelo trrhelbo.Haaik (BH)

      55 but if the opinion has no football context and it’s all personal opinion and critical, disparaging comments, then I feel the need to call it out for what it is. It’s unnecessary instigating comments that cause childish feuds between fans. If you really hate Alex Smith why are you on here daily telling people about it over and over again?
