Family Stuff

I've been a bit busy these past few days with family stuff; My sister wanted me to make some Pin Up Birthday cards for her, so here are a couple examples of the finished cards... she's big into pink and marilyn monroe/pin up styles so these were right up her street!

I then had a few days away staying at the Parents In Law's and we did lots of family stuff, including, taking my Mum and Dad to a London Follies Show for my Mum's Birthday; Celebrating my Mother In Laws Birthday the following day and then on the Monday taking the kids to Legoland, which they loved......

Above, Steve takes Ethan on this ride, which he queued for forty minutes to get on, but he had a great time whizzing round and getting wet!

Steve then took Cameron on the above ride, (Cameron to the right of Steve), Cameron was so giggly as the ride shot up and down, it's the first time the boys have been on more exciting rides as they are now four and are able to go on more due to their age and height.

Here I am taking them on a more sedate ride.... I'm really not one for thrill seeking rides, although they did manage to get me on the Log Flume which I hated!! LOL!!

But we're now back home and catching up with the washing and mounds of ironing YUK! Hope to get some craft time later this week though, so keep tuned!!

How wonderful you got to spend some time with the family, summer is winding down and moments like those will fade. Thanks for sharing your beautiful family with us.
