Garden day...

You may have seen some of these photos from my previous log here but there was so many precious photos from that day, that I'm going to make another post about that day. Mainly so the girls can remember the day behind the photos.
It was the Saturday of the bank holiday weekend. Daddy M was working until mid afternoon, and Uncle N was due to arrive mid afternoon too. We spent the morning in the kitchen preparing the food for the BBQ, but after lunch, it meant the girls could explore the garden in depth, without any time restraints, and Mummy managed to get the camera out the box it was packed it, and dust of a new lens that doesn't get used very often.
Here are the first photos of the day, I think they are even more special as the back ground is so green and fresh.

S soon managed to find the sandpit, and she dived in... thinking she would build sandcastles, but instead deciding to grab big handful, and then chase J around ready to throw it at her.

 After the sandpit got confiscated due to the sand throwing incident (5 times) they found some of the old dandelions, that they know as fairies.... yep, thank Tinkerbell for that one. So picked, and let them go.... some magical photos here, especially as the weeds/flowers/shrubs around the tree make it look more magical.... (yep I'm not gardener...yet!)

Mummy then got to work building the new swing set. J originally got a swing for her 1st birthday from Grandma M, but through the numerous house moves, it got broke, and was never replaced it the last house due to the lack of space for one. But here in our new garden we have plenty, so got a double to avoid any arguments. J is only just using a big girl seat comfortably, but S had never really been on one. I was half expecting to go out to buy a 3 in 1 seat that would change with her, but that wasn't needed.

S first go on a big girl swing.

Just after the swing was constructed, Uncle N and R arrived.. so it was back to running around the garden.

 They have plenty of space to drive the car up and down.

But J cheekily aimed S at the tree stump...

Then she noticed the camera was pointed at her... and Uncle N got some lovely photos of her....

 Whilst S crashed into the tree stump that J aimed her at...
It wasn't me...honest....

 We are lucky enough to have a huge willow tree in the middle of our garden. J likes trying to reach the branches, as when she gives it a little tug, it rains leaves...

 So much so... that they end up in your hair...

Then to finish the day of it has to be bubbles.... S is getting really good at blowing bubbles now.

It was a lovely day, and I hope the first of many days out in our new garden, capturing memories.

  1. Gorgeous. The garden looks amazing and very big. Just noticed on another blog entry that you were at Glebe Farm - we were there last week! We must be local-ish :)

    1. It is very big... takes ages to mow the lawn, but so worth it! :-) We loved it at Glebe farm. Its only a 5-10mins drive from where we are.

  2. I love the photos of them near that tree! Lovely, lovely girls =) #countrykids
