The six week summer holiday is at an end. L goes back to work tomorrow and our time as a family of four goes back to being only evenings and weekends – at least until the end of October.
I started the summer holidays with two just-turned-one-year-olds and finish it with two toddlers heading towards 14 months old. Well, I say toddlers. Maybe one toddler and one cruiser-who-still-refuses-to-let-go-of-the-furniture-or-someone’s-hands (although she did stand unsupported and take two small steps on Wednesday – go Claudie!) is more accurate.
We have really enjoyed our weeks together and – unlike last summer holidays, when we were just grateful to survive – we have been out and about and had lots of fun together.
Let Claudia and Imogen be your guides…
We went to the Horniman Museum in Forest Hill and checked out the aquarium:
We went on holiday to Swanage with our mummies and our Grandma and Grandad. We played on the beach and went on a real steam train!
Our mummies had a date for their second anniversary (we weren’t invited!):
We went to Godstone Farm and played in the sandpit:
We had our jabs and spent some of our birthday money to make us feel better. We had fun playing in the garden:
We visited our friends and had some playdates here too:
We visited our Great Nana in Deal and tried out the Walmer paddling pool:
We visited our Great Granny in Trowbridge and saw lots of family we haven’t seen in ages – including our cousins!
We have had a wonderful 6 weeks with our beautiful, amazing babies. They have come on leaps and bounds and can do so much. They are a constant source of amusement and entertainment. It’s just so much fun being together.
Roll on half term!
