Fun at the zoo today with Lance, Linda, Mia and Benjamin.

Saturday family climb at the White Spider…

Birthday activities….playing on the Boris Bikes and Little Kickers. 

Happy 3rd birthday Oscar.   He was blessed with many gifts and cakes and was well chuffed to be 3.

Another day, another party.  Rob turned 3 and celebrated with a party at the Build a Bear Workshop.  The kids loved the experience.

Adeline and Oscar couldn’t have chosen more in character, a purple sparkly bunny for Adeline (Princess Charlotte Bunny Rabbit) and Oscar a red ‘spider bear’.  

Scarlett’s party….a jungle gym, florist, cafe and post office in a church….a very forward thinking minister keen to have the community make use of the space…

Southbank with the Laytons at the Monski Mouse disco, the bar at the wonder ground and slide installation outside the Southbank Centre. The end of the afternoon/evening was cut short by Oscar’s head bump, a lot of blood, and a visit to St Thomas’ with Daddy on a Sunday night for ‘gluing’ back together.

Adeline’s first day of reception at Hampden Gurney was on Tuesday 2nd of September.  We couldn’t have been prouder.  She had a fabulous first week, loves her new school, and can’t wait to get back for week 2.

Regents Park on a sunny Sunday. Adeline found a lovely Italian girl painting in Queen Mary’s Rose garden, and sat down and joined her.  Chiara gave Adeline some drawing materials and Adeline and then Oscar joined in.  We then found a pet bunny that somebody had brought to the park.  An early dinner in the cafe for dinner with Garnie and Granddad, and a great finish to the weekend.

The best day we had weather wise in our week in The Gower, Wales.  Rhossili beach was nothing short of beautiful and the kids were unperturbed about splashing around in wetsuits.  I posted a couple more from that glorious day here.

During our recent holiday in The Gower Wales, we enjoyed a day ‘climbing’ at Little Tor around from Three Cliffs Beach.  The boys managed one trad route, Central Flake.  The girls flaked the climbing and we all retired to the pub.  Thanks to Garnie, Granddad and Poppy for taking the kids on a lovely Steam Train ride and giving us a kid fee day.

3 Cliffs Bay, The Gower, Wales.  We loved exploring this glorious beach with Garnie, Granddad and Poppy in tow.  The kids loved their new buckets and spades.  The beach was a 10-15 minute walk in from the carpark and as soon as we found sand Oscar had to dig.  ”I need to dig” he told us as we encouraged him down the pathway onto the main beach.  Adeline enjoyed exploring the rock pools, collecting shells and investigating the sea anenomes.
