This Bank Holiday Weekend We Have Been...

on Tuesday, 07 May 2013.

This long Bank Holiday Weekend we mostly have been...


Basking on blankets in the sunshine (or in the shade if your LL!)


Meeting my in-laws in Stamford for the day and going for lunch and playing in the park.


Going down slides with Daddy really fast!


Having a picnic in the back garden.


Mixing paints in order to create masterpieces.


Creating those masterpieces.


Been put in stupid sun hats that completely ruin our street cred.


We went to the park for a walk and of course had to stop for an ice cream.


And we found a 'jungle' that needed exploring.


We stopped for a nice long picnic in the sunshine.


And lay on a blanket and looked up at the sky.


We went to a family BBQ at Grandma's house.


And we shared a joke with the rest of the family.


All in all it has been a lovely, relaxed long bank holiday with a mixture of DIY and house sorting thrown in for good measure.  

Why can't all weekend's be three days long?

    Gorgeous photos (as ever!). Thanks for your comment on my blog too, it is so hard to get photos of toddlers isn't it, I have hundreds of C who stays still and hardly any decent ones of LB. She always moves or has her bloody hands in her mouth!! L x

    It looks like you had a fabulous weekend.
    Beautiful photos. I want LL's hat for myself!
    The last photo of her smile is simply gorgeous.
    Mads looks so cute with bunches. I love the photo of her and Mr E doing down the slide. He looks like he's having a lot of fun! xx
