is always in our house when my parents come to stay.
We just hang out so comfortably with each other and there is never a dull moment.
We spent a lot of time around the table both in and outside playing quizzes and board games today and had such a good time that they decided to stay and extra day. I was overjoyed!
Earlier this afternoon we took a spell from games so that Belle could show Granny and Grandpa her special place at The Three Sisters park. There is a hide to go and view all the wildlife and its especially brilliant because my parents love birds (they spend a small fortune feeding feathered creatures in their garden). What was surprising was seeing a Jay there today. Of course it was too flaming dark to take a picture so you will have to take my word for it. there was a lot of oooooooo's coming from the parents so I guess it was like "major".
The three sisters park is literally 2 minutes from our house and is a place where I take clients for photo shoots. It has a million backdrops but my clients tend to choose the shots I take on the style or in the lane (like these pics below). Im chuffed to bits that my parents let me take a nice picture of them both. This just happens to be one of my new fave pictures of all time. Its super precious to me.
Then of course I have to go an ruin the romance of it all when my father struggled to lift mum off the style. I think I might love this picture more, actch!
And of course I couldn't go without snapping my lil lady with her grampies neither.
Belle with her uncontrollable masses of delish curls.Who claimed she had found wild cherried but we think they were beech nut type thingies. Put it this way, we encouraged her NOt to eat them. Although I might slip a few in Mark's fruit salad tomorrow. He he heeeeeeeeeeee.
Eddy finishing off marks ice cream. Boy, did that little dog have a treat. And we had such a scream watching him eat it!
So back to the garden to play quizzes and get my ass whipped in the process. Ok, I came second to Mum who is the brains of Britain it would seem. here is dad during his quiz master stretch of the game.
Check me out (mid quiz) advertising the Royal Air Force Careers on my lips, do you think they would offer me some sort of commission? We have a ton of those pens in our house and with 39 years Royal Air Force service between me, my sis and my bro......... a few biro's is a constant reminder of my days there!
The night rolled into Wii fit and Wii sports and rounded off with a game of Balderdash.
And its only half way through the weekend!
Is your weekend any good too?
