Week 3 - family_us 3
…puddle hopping in the rain followed by pizza for lunch is reason enough to smile isn’t it! And I didn’t even ask for that peck on the cheek – E’s such a charmer.

Such precious family time for us this month and I can’t help but share a few more highlights from our weekend away in Glastonbury which included chasing chickens and riding bikes and E’s first time playing on the beach at Burnham-on-Sea.

Lucy’s ‘Dear Beautiful’ Me and Mine post this month also reminded me of a lovely Sunday morning stroll we took through the Alney Island Nature Reserve.  E was in his element riding his bike, shouting ‘moo moo’ every time he saw a cow and picking ‘yellow wowers‘. E buttercups FB banner

I love these buttercup pictures of E so much it might be time to update my blog header – I feel a little pang each time I log in and see my poppy strewn allotment header and wonder how it’s really looking. Pictures of my little man serenading flowers on the other hand never fails to make my heart smile.

6 years ago today I took my last waddle to the allotment to pick green veg for a vitamin packed last supper.  I knew baby was on his way but had a feeling he wasn't going to be quick about it.  It's his birthday in 2 days time and I'm so excited for him, my darling Whopper (he was 10lb 2oz and my bump in this picture is 48"!)
#nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #ginormousbump  #10monthspregnant Amazing customer service from @tatterhood_ to help make sure her framed Mother poem arrived in time for my Mum's 70th birthday.  So many other wonderful poems available as postcards and her new book is also in stock on her website.  Go check her out, she's ace :0)

When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
