40 ways to celebrate

July 2, 2015 at 9:25 pm 5 comments

I probably could have come up with 40 ways to help G celebrate his 40th birthday this year but here are a few more momentos from the one he chose – a quiet, secluded farm stay in Hereford.  He spent the first few hours in peaceful reflection gazing at the view of the Black Mountains while E made chalk drawings and honed his potty skills.  Ice cream featured (with more restraint than normal due to the rural location), Lego play dominated and G’s folks joined us on the last day.

      oh yes, I’d not even noticed! Funny how our own tastes are reflected in our choice for our children – it won’t come as any surprise that E has no shirts will it!

    happy birthday to G – that photo of E with the drawing looks quite like you – although you don’t have all his lovely curls!
