Wow, what a day! Such a great family. Scorching hot sunshine and the children didn’t stop grinning all day. I had resort to special measures to ensure I captured some different expressions [please note, no children were harmed in the pursuit of photographic variety!]. We had lots of fun playing in the garden, and I learnt some new games ….. I have to say, throwing the child into the hedge is a new one on me, but George loved it! Hot sunshine, water and children always mix well, so this bunch needed no persuasion to put on their swimming trunks/costumes and get out the hosepipe (well, OK, Rory needed a bit of persuassion to keep his trunks on, but it’s a fact of life, young children and clothes don’t always stay together!). Through all of this, Annabel, who was just coming up to her 2nd birthday, totally managed to keep up with her brothers and join in with most of the games – no way was she going to be left out. Eventually we headed inside for some much needed juice & chocolate cake, and a few pictures in the children’s bedrooms.
