Sunny weekend

It was Daughter 2's birthday yesterday. She was home for the weekend. Daughter 1 and family and also Son and Daughter-in-Law came down too. There was a certain amount of what my father used to call (when we were little) "noise and nonsense". Granddaughter, or as her grandfather tends to call her, Hattie McHat, was suitably behatted.

She is very fond of weeding books.

And also playing in the sand pit.

There was cake. (You can see the fairly imminent Granddaughter 2 inside her mother's pink shirt.)

This photo is a bit blurry but I like the expressions on Son's and Granddaughter's faces.

Then today, Grandson did various serious experiments with sand, water and stones. I think he was checking that Archimedes got that bath thing right.

Granddaughter did a bit more weeding of books.

And Grandson marched around the garden inside a tube. As you do.

It was a lovely weekend, the sort you remember for a long time.


  1. Lovely!
    We are having a similar weekend...but only one Grandson to photograph and play with.. teeth are erupting and this morning his first ever runny nose.
    Progress around the place is now quite rapid and he has taken to eating solid food with enthusiasm. Feds himself,at 8 months.
    He is very lovable but has trouble sleeping!
    Chilly here the last few mornings, but 5 sunny days!

  2. Good and happiness wonderful Pam x

  3. Aww, happy days. The smiles say it all.

  4. Grandaughter was marching round in that tube here on Friday -it's obviously the thing to do. Glad you had such a good weekend.

  5. It sounds like a PERFECT weekend! Happy Birthday to DD2. I spied GD2 before you mentioned her ;-D. And oh how cute is little L in those hats? She's growing so quickly!!!

  6. You have such a lovely family. What a great way to spend the weekend.
