Today has been glorious, blue skies and gorgeous sunshine all day. At times though, we had fairly strong gusts of wind, as you can see by The Boy Child's hair in one photo! I do love it when The Boy Child can be outside all the time.
DS was invited to a paddling pool playdate yesterday afternoon: he had more playing with the trucks than with the water. I think it was a little on the cold side!
This week's challenge was to follow a sketch, and a very minimal sketch at that!

We had a day in the country yesterday, as we headed out to Lyneham for BF's birthday. The weather was glorious and the little people were able to spend every waking moment outside. BF's lovely InLaws came up as well, which was lovely as we haven't seen them since last August. (Unfortunately, BF's DH is … Continue reading BF’s Birthday
