Keeping them busy.




Trying to find new and interesting activities for the children isn't easy.

There's been Cricket, Football, Swimming, Golf, Croquet, Treasure hunting, Kayaking, TV (yes, I know), and good old fashioned walks through the woods.

                             

A dog, several kids, and a woodland track, and all is well with the world. Long walks are best! Little Jade even took her two teddies along.

  1. If they are bored there with all their cousins they have a problem especially with the list of activities.

    2. They haven't used the bikes at all; maybe they've forgotten that they're there.

      No time to be bored, they are busy all day long.

    1. That's what we're hoping. Mostly it's for cousin bonding; they only see each other every 3 or 4 years.

  15. I have always thought that when dogs are around little kids, they're thinking, "This is so much fun!" And Bok is surely in his glory now.

  18. Looks like a lovely family visit, and one to treasure. No visits here this year, but don't mind that as the place is still not up to coping with youngsters.

    1. Nor are we Vera. This year has been a real test of our inventiveness, but we've managed somehow.
