This morning I made two Picnic Pies for tomorrow and some crumble topping for this evening and then we went out to the farm to have some time just with the Barcelona babies and their parents and with our eldest and her daughter while all the other children went back down the lane to the beach for more adventures. On their way back they picked two buckets worth of blackberries for the Blackberry and Apple Crumble.
LiveWire 2 is a natural with his baby cousins and they are loving him and his attention.
Just before dinner tonight, we were presented with the ‘first’ of our presents from them all – fabulous T-shirts printed with the family portrait that we had made almost two years ago to give to each family. As a very special surprise KJ had been in touch with Kate from Cornish Bird in the Sticks and she added our Grandbaby twins to the family portrait! What a totally fabulous thing to do for us. We were quite overcome….. Every member of the family now has a commemorative T-shirt.

So do we! Our own children, the middle generation now, remember very fondly the time when my Mum and Dad rented chalets for us all to be together for their Golden Wedding. Now we have done the same for them and hope that memories made will last forever.🙂
