Holidays with grandparents - and the first for Esther. Lots of catching up with family and friends, and even some rest. All good fun.

First big trip in the big car with a big load of luggage!

Treats at Brechin Castle. Highly recommended.
Treats for parents too!

Treats at Granny's house. Also highly recommended.

I was amused by this appropriate sign.

I love this picture. The girls did have lots of fun.

New toys to play on...

 I don't remember park toys being this good when I was small!

Yet more spinning...

...and more

My parents have their golden wedding anniversary later this year. Naturally this is an occasion for a family gathering - here are all the grandchildren.

...and here are the hard-working photographers! (my sister and family)
The celebration itself

Trip to Aden park with Grandparents means ice cream of course!

And some more park toys, this time with added mud.

This is actually a real toy. Hold on for dear life and SPIN! Then fall off and "AGAIN AGAIN"

The visit to my parents also meant time with cousins, during with Naomi and Miriam in particular were hardly to be seen.
These are some musical instruments they made one day. I love the guitar!

Miriam learned how to swing by herself on this holiday. Every time she jumped on a swing and got a little better - with the result of real joy!

Well, why wouldn't you cover yourself in starts just before bedtime?

Miriam drew a butterfly and a wand.

Esther is learning how to hold on to toys.

More park fun!

and more park fun...

Happy baby!

It wouldn't be summertime without rolling down a hill
