A Fun Filled Family Weekend!

Gosh, what a fun packed weekend we've had!! Here are my boys on Saturday, busy helping to make a Birthday Cake for their Grandpa who was due to visit on the Sunday. They loved finishing off the chocolate mixture in the bowl.... I always remember doing this as a kid! LOL!

Well Sunday arrived with much excitement from the boys, Grandma and Grandpa were treated to lots of hugs and painted pictures from them and after lunch we presented Grandpa with the chocolate cake... yes, believe it or not the boys did leave enough mixture to actually make a cake!

We then took a two hour walk through our local woods. We are so lucky to have these beautiful woods on our doorstep. It is stunning at this time of year, full of bluebells.......

As you look across the woods it's like looking at a sea of blue, and the smell is glorious, my Mum just couldn't resist getting right into the thick of it for a photo....

And then we come to today; Monday, a Public Holiday here in the UK!! Well, it started out lovely and sunny this morning so we thought we'd pop down to a local beach... BIG MISTAKE! IT WAS FREEZING!! What were we thinking LOL!!! But we did manage to brave it for about an hour along with other crazy families.... good old British Weather!

Oh Mandy I so want to come to your neck of the woods as they say here in Oklahoma! It is just beautiful I can smell the bluebells just sitting here and they are so grand!

Your family is so sweet I am so glad you share pics of them. It helps when your friends come with a face not just typing on a keyboard:)

XXXOOO
