Friends Reunited

I have a little time to do another update post before we dash off for our hols, so I thought I'd tell you about the wonderful visitors we had... our lovely friends David and Tjits and their two girls came to stay for a few days having travelled all the way from Inverness!!  It was so good to see them as they are the couple that we really miss from our old Church in the Highlands.

It was great to have them round! Just to be able to chat to them without the constraints of the telephone and being able to see them face to face was brilliant; and served as a huge 'pick-me-up' to both Robert and Myself.  The girls all had a fab time playing together too!!

While they were here we took them to Golden Acre Park in Leeds for a bit of a stroll... and for the kids to see all the ducks! The weather was beautiful, lunch was delicious and the kids had a ball!!
Here's some piccies to prove it!

Dead chuffed with some of these photo's as they were taken with my mobile phone's camera!!  I can't believe the quality of the pictures it takes.

Anyway, I hope you all have a great time over the next week or so!! I'm sure we will be... and I'll have plenty more pictures to show you when we come back!

Update part deux

Our next major trip away was down to Charmouth in Dorset, where we rented a cottage with the parents-in-law, my sister-in-law and her husband and their two boys.  Nine of us in one cottage for the week was rather fun! Lots of trips to the beach (which was only 5 minutes walk away), plenty of sightseeing and loads of walking kept us busy for the whole week.  Erin and her cousins particularly enjoyed building 'santastles' on Charmouth beach.
Here's few piccies from that trip

There are so many other beautiful piccies taken on that trip I wish I could share them all with you!  Keep a lookout for them as I'm sure they'll be appearing in future scrapping projects!

We are away on another camping trip from tomorrow (Friday 17th) and will be returning on Sunday 26th.  I'll update some more when we get back.  Think of us camping in the pouring rain up in Northumberland and pray that we get some decent weather!!

OMGosh! I'm sooooo sorry!

Wow, I really have to apologise to all of you for not posting for so long! There has been so much going on, I've not been able to keep up with it... nevermind blogging about it!  I will attempt to catch up on all the happenings over the next few days or so.

Let's start with our camping endeavours! Our first trip I have already talked about, but hadn't gotten round to posting any piccies. Want to see?? OK....

Erin enjoying the 'tampin' - as she calls it!

My parents tent, which we borrowed

Erin feeding the goats

Mummy and Erin on the See-Saw... I think Mummy enjoyed it more than Erin did!!

I shall update on the rest of our camping endeavours in another post as it seems that Typepad is objecting to me posting so many photo's!  See you later!
