Having A Grandma Fix.

This last weekend was filled with the Bristol side of the family. Oh the house changes rapidly as they arrive with two under two and a Labrador dog. Suddenly our large house starts getting small! BUT filled with joy and laughter. The kitchen becomes an area, where if someone was filming, has someone nearly always in there! The work surfaces are filled with bowls of fruit, especially bananas, cakes and goodies. The pantry is heaving with extra food! Upstairs the bedrooms take on a new look with what has become the ironing room is reverted back to a bedroom for the toddler. My work room becomes a room for the baby and the third bedroom, well that doesn't get used much, so it is nice to see the beds slept in again. So unashamedly I'm going to bore you with pictures of the grandchildren - you have been warned! 320 pictures were taken over the weekend! NO don't worry you will not have to endure that many photographs!

Saturday we went to Rutland Water to the area with a beach. Now my son in law is amazingly skinny but loves his food - not fair (to eat lots and be sooooo thin). So as we arrive at 11:45 he's wanting the picnic already! Manage to persuade him to wait a little longer but not for too long as Rowan is wanting his lunch too! Now Rowan did eat his sandwich first before he had hoola hoops!

My basket had a new use! Perfect size for Ayla to sit in and be fed! She is now exactly six months old and beginning to eat solids. Unlike her brother who by three months of age was devouring everything he could see! She is taking life easy. She is able to roll around, but not quite sitting up yet. Saturday was one of those days that when the sun came out it was gorgeous and hot, but when it disappeared the layers were on again!

Here I am having precious moments with the baby. Having a large pointed nose was fun for her as she tried to rearrange it!

Meanwhile Rowan had a great time playing on the beach. He spent most of the afternoon contentedly playing with the sand.

He and his daddy made a sandcastle together.

It all became too much for Ayla and Poppy!

It took a long walk around to get her to sleep as she was busy enjoying watching all that was going on. Grandad too had a sleep!

Sunday the weather was horrid and so we opted to venture out to the local soft play park.

Rowan had a great time climbing and exploring.

Enjoying the small slide with his daddy.

Later on then enjoying the BIG boys slide!

Even Ayla had to be dragged around the play area to keep up with Rowan!

But she didn't last as long as he did before falling asleep. Golly even though she is small my arms did become tired holding her in one position for soo long. But oh what a privilege to have her fall asleep in my arms. Aaaargh!

One very thirsty boy - drinking the dregs!

- Drinking chocolate!

Back home for a bounce.

Rowan making me laugh! He discovered that in our porch we have an alibaba basket containing hats, scarves and gloves. Here he is after having chosen some clothes! I just love him in this deerstalker!

All too soon it was time for them to leave. :(

Thanks for popping by, have a good week.
