I've spent 10 minutes trying to figure out whether I try and catch up from where I left off before, or if I do something a bit more recent.
We'll go with recent. I just finished putting together this collage of our family -
Ain't that just the cutest thang....
This is the family tree. We found it on the grounds of Kelburn Castle back in 2009, and since then it's become a little tradition for us to take a photo there as the family has grown.
It was just a few weeks ago we decided to make a quick trip North of the border to visit Nanny and Grandpa Polland. It was a delightfully sunny few days (though still pretty cold at times).
We made a trip to the stunning Eglinton Park...
I told Aniah that this was where Rapunzel's castle was. She wasn't at all excited by this idea.
Sometimes I look at her and I see gimpses of her 'grown up' face. Then I shake it away, I'd rather see the baby face for a bit longer.
This one is still well and truly in the baby face stage ... thank goodness!
And this little one. Oh, I could just eat him up. He is so desperate to be a 'big boy', but I keep telling him - "No Zak, don't grow up too fast or you'll make me sad".
These are Gareth's very loveable nephiews who came along for the day. Such good kids.
Gareth hates photos, but on this occasion he seemed much too keen to 'strike a pose' . Love the one with Aniah - she snuck up behind him and tried to pose too.
Silly faces... not sure how Aniah got cut out though :(
We found this odd headless statue. Our attempt at being the heads is pretty lame, but we thought it was really funny at the time!
The next day, we made a trip to Kelburn country park and castle, where there were lots of fun things for the kids to get up to...
We also made sure we took an updated family tree shot :)
All my very favourite people...
Sometimes Aniah is just the sweetest thing. Here she was helping Zak put his shoes back on :)
Any time we tell the kids we are going on holiday, their first respone (particularly Zak) is to should "Can we go to the beach?"
Gareth took us to Irvine beach, one we had not visited before. It was a beautiful sandy beach with tonnes of dunes. Before we arrived, Gareth spoke about how cold the water is in Scotland particularly when it's not Summer. He was doubtful if the kids would even want to go into the water. Ha. Apparently they don't feel the cold...
