Hello, I need help with the time/manner/place rule for adverbial phrases.

In the advanced grammar lesson 1, the example is given [color=blue:3pay34bv]Sabine isst heute (time) mit ihre Freundin (manner) in der Stadt (place).[/color:3pay34bv] But in Exercise 1, #4, the answer is [color=blue:3pay34bv]Die Kinder spielen auf der Straße [/color:3pay34bv](seems like place) [color=blue:3pay34bv]mit Ihren Freunden [/color:3pay34bv](seems like manner).

Why does the "with friend(s)" phrase come before place in the example sentence but not in the exercise sentence?

Many thanks for help with this.
Caroline
