Therefore all seasons shall be sweet to thee,
Whether summer clothe the general earth
With greeness, or the redbreast sit and sing
Betwixt the tufts of snow on the bare branch
Of mossy apple-tree, while the nigh thatch
Smokes in the sun-thaw; whether the eave-drops fall
Heard only in the trances of the blast,
Or if the secret ministry of frost
Shall hang them up in silent icicles,
Quietly shining to the quiet Moon.

A Flying Visit


We had a flying visit from my younger son and his family last night when they stayed with us on their way to a holiday in Wales. This morning we took the boys to Millhouses Park so that they had chance to run around and play before continuing their journey. DH took all the photos on this post by the way.
Gabriel is obviously enjoying being on the climbing frame.


George with my beautiful DIL Francesca.


All together now! If you jump hard enough on this it makes a fountain of water fly up into the air.



Gabriel loves the slide.


George's favourite is the swing



A climbing wall! With a bit of help from dad I can make it.....



......to the top!



Wow! It's a long way down!



Over we go! Dad's there to lend a hand again. Then it was time to go back to granny's house for some lunch before heading off to the seaside. Let's hope the sun shines for them.

George said...

You certainly have a lovely family, Rowan. As you can appreciate, I was reliving my childhood through George's adventures.

Beautiful children, Rowan! Looks like they were having a great time and, of course, you did too.

The water spouting 'thing' seemed to be well like by your grandsons, they had the biggest smiles on their faces. You have a beautiful family in them Rowan!

Happy days, and is that you I spied with a white blouse holding a football? Hope your wrist is mending, and also - you've never been to Somerset? The north Devon coast and that of west Somerset are definitely a must for a visit aswell as Exmoor, and it is a very friendly area.

Beautiful grandsons. It's always good when our children come home, even if it's a flying visit.

What a gorgeous looking family. We came past Millhouses Park this afternoon. We always used to go there when we were kids. I used to love th paddling pool and couldnt wait to be grown up to go in the Lido - sadly gone before I grew up!! xxxx
