Baking, Rock Pooling and Drawing

15 Jun

1   The two big Grandbabies really aren’t babies any more!   J made some cup cakes this morning with very little help, cracking the eggs and doing all the mixing on his own. T enjoyed the results.

    to cracking it open
    to putting together
    to finish off
    to sampling the fruit
    to exploring
    feeds creativity

    At 75 I still love rock pooling. Meet you down at Gylly next spring, you bring the nets please. When my landlocked son was 14 I introduced him to that sport at Swanpool, he quickly got the hang of it! we also went poking around Mylor Creek for his biology project back in Vermont. We are still at it just for fun.

      Swanpool will be our next destination! We hadn’t thought of there so thank you. We love it too and don’t always wait for the Grandchildren to be around!
      We’ll meet you with the nets next Spring if possible though we are planning to be in Atlanta in the Spring!

    I enjoyed spending time with my children when they were that age. Even simple things are a great adventure.
