Things I'm loving at the moment...

Meeting up with friends we adore but haven't seen in AGES. You know the kind of friends who even if it has been ages it feels like its been no time at all...
Even if they do look like they should be models in a magazine, alright guys stop looking so pretty...

Seeing new friends again who are so much fun....

Being with these friends that love your kids like they are their own...

Getting our boys together with some girlfriends to play with...

 This little lady was quite taken with Isaac, the little stud...

Everyone always asks me if im going to try for a girl. Although I may go a bit nuts buying the girly stuff when a friend has a baby girl mostly I'm loving having 2 boys. However a little time with these girls makes me realise, although I'm digging my boys, GIRLS ROCK!
I mean seriously?...
Adorable



 
Visiting Blenheim Palace with these friends...

Although looking hard Isaac informed me that the princess isn't around today...

Playing on new playgrounds...


Conquering scary bridges...


Even we joined in the fun...
 Although I wasn't convinced...
 At all...
 But I got in the swing of things...

 Um...Question...When exactly did my oldest lose his babyish looks and start looking like a real boy?

Anyway back to things i'm loving at the moment...

Hot days ending with moody looking storm clouds...

(I placed my sun glasses over the lens as a makeshift filter in these shots as we were driving home)


Wearing PJs over trousers while swinging from apple trees (like we all haven't done that at some time or another...)

Hanging in the tent in the garden even when its raining...



 The garden...

All this heat and rain is making stuff grow real nice...


Eating home grown Raspberries...

 Paddling pools...

Soaking them up before they grow up too fast...

Isaac decided some dunking was required...
 This boy cracks me up...


 Chunky pastels...

 And Lastly baking with my first born...

...who says he wants to grow up to be Daddy. Listen kid, Daddy may be a cooking genius but it's mummy that bakes the sweet stuff!


Isaac usually eats more than he bakes...
 As always we approach this in a tidy organised manner...
 Although we didn't have actual ginger bread men shapes...
  But we made it work...


The reviews were kind...
 So we made another batch with new cutters...
 Not all of them made it though...

Good times people, good times.
