A glimmer of summer...



 
 
Over the weekend, we had lovely weather... warm enough for Daddy M to take his top off to sunbathe. So we took advantage and enjoyed the garden, that little bit more. Today though, it is pouring with rain, and J is in nursery. We have had no internet connection for a week now, so I've only just gone back through the photos, and already, they have put that summer smile on my face again.
The day started with some al fresco snacks... the girls didn't want to sit and enjoy them though, in case the other one had more then them.

We also got J's balance bike out, with the hope that as the garden is on a bit of a slope, she could get more practice... She is looking good....
 And S enjoyed the trampoline...

 We also got the alligator golf out, its so much more fun outside...

 ...and the girls just had a run...
 ... even the kitty's enjoyed being outside...
the sibling squabbling soon started though, over the colour of the golf club... you can picture the argument in these next few photos...
 ... the squabble....
 ... the fleeing....
...the chase... 
...the cry.... 
 ... the sulk, after mummy and daddy intervened....

 After the squabble... the girls soon found another worm...
 Mummy then brought the play room outside, and as we had a lot of space, the track came out too...
 ...after a check of facebook, and looking at other peoples days, I remembered we had a paddling pool in the garage, and the weather was perfect for it... we chose the small one, as it was less buckets to fill...
 ...but it was still big enough for the two of them...
 

 
 
 We then decided to add the slide into the mix... and the girls soon realised that pouring water down it first made them faster....
 ... and the faster they went... the bigger the splash...

 S didn't like going down the slide, but did like being at the bottom when J came down...



 
It was a lovely day in the sunshine, and even better was it didn't cost us a penny. Let hope we have lots more weather like this to enjoy this year.

  3. Your garden looks lovely. Our girls love the trampoline at the soft play centre, but I think I should get them one for the garden. Thanks for linking up to the #binkylinky
