My Life with S

A Snapshot From Our Weekend 2015-09-29

This will be our last weekend update containing barons; they’re being auctioned off on Thursday!
On Saturday morning we went to say hello to them, and S wanted her photo taken with “Astro Baron”

After the barons, we used an “electro dough” kit we’d been sent. S and De Af made lots of LEDs light up.
 We went for a walk to see if we could find some conkers or pine cones… we didn’t find much of either, but we did see a lot of squirrels! In this photo, S is actually trying to shake a squirrel out of a tree, after it ran away from us.

 On Sunday, we went to the park with our friends. S and her friend E ganged up on E’s dad and chased him around lots. S doesn’t really have many men in her life, so she was really shy of him to start with and wouldn’t even look at him. It was so lovely to see her start to join in with the games as she grew more confident.

how was your weekend?

      Thanks Kaye, we had a great weekend. It's a shame the barons are gone now; we're hoping they'll do something similar for next summer!

    That photo of the girls with E's Dad is wonderful, times like this enjoying the outdoors in good company are just the best. #PointShoot Coombe Mill - Fiona Cambouropoulos recently posted...Win My Little Pony Spooktacular Pony Tales DVDMy Profile

      You're so right; this park is only around the corner from us and even just half an hour up there can make a world of difference to our day!

      she's a bit gutted now there are no barons to have her photo taken with! We love the sunny autumn weather for exploring though - sure we'll find something else to explore!
