Had Bob and the twins over again tonight while daughter ran SIL to work. Dinky was asleep time I pushed them up here so just got Minky out of the pushchair and plonked him on the grass with some toys. He likes the feel and texture of the grass.
It is amazing in the difference between the twins, if you sit Dinky down she will quite happily sit and play very content. Minky on the other hand does not sit still. You sit him down and he lays himself down, rolls himself around and tries to crawl. Its quite funny, he can get up on his knees but the arms wont join in so he just can't crawl, but he can certainly get across the floor quick enough. Need to baby proof my living room I think.
When she woke up he was sleeping and so her and I sat on the rug with the bricks I had picked up for them at the car boot that morning.

Last week when we were on holiday daughter No1 was watering the fruit and veg in the garden for me. I had said to her if any strawberries ripened she may as well eat them save them going off. None did ripen for her, so here are the first strawberries from the garden.
Sadly this is another food on my "no can eat" list unless they are cooked, the list keeps growing longer, very annoying.
These lilies don't stay in bloom for long, but they are beautiful sitting in the front garden for a week or so while they are out.

Off for a visit to Son No1, and as usual we do something else while we are in the area. Today we geocached from Alva to Menstrie on the back road. I loved this little chap that we saw.

Today I went to see Fifi's P7 class assembly. I had gone along to see the assembly but had also said if they started crying then I would leave with them so daughter and SIL, and Auntie H could stay. Luckily it did not come to that and we all enjoyed the afternoon.
After this I took Bob up the road as they stay a Thursday night. Fifi was not staying as she had her school leaving party and wanted to go home afterwards not come up here, so it was just Bob.
Granddad decided this was a great opportunity to take Bob fishing down the river, and so we went off and fished for nearly two hours. He really enjoyed himself and did really well.

Saw a new geocache trail just a few miles up the road from here, and we decided as it was such a lovely evening we would go and walk the trail. I loved the clouds and the way the sun was lighting up the brown grass down the edge of the path. Shame my shadow was in the picture but could not get the angle I wanted without it.
We managed to find six of the seven we looked for, that's quite a good strike rate.

I had happily taken care of the children last weekend to save them being popped in the car to run SIL to work. Daughter stopped in at the shop for a few bits and pieces, and bought me this lovely bunch of flowers.
