On Saturday, after Josephs weekly swimming lesson, we went school shoes shopping before enjoying the afternoon in the garden.
The twins have got a fantastic Rokka Play Cornish Boat which I finally got round to putting together for them. It is such a great piece of play equipment. When it is placed as it is in the picture it is a lovely rocking boat complete with sail. However when it is the other way up it is a great little picnic bench for them to either enjoy lunch or a snack or for crafty play outside. I am over the moon with it and I am sure that the twins will get many hours of fun from it.
Hubby and his little helper, Joseph, started preparing beds in the vegetable garden. While I got some baking done in preparation for the mothers day dessert I had offered to make for my mum.
As it was such a lovely day our meal plans changed to a BBQ. However, by tea time it had cooled off a little so it was cooked outside but enjoyed inside.
We finished Saturday off as we always do, with family time for Joseph. Once the twins are tucked up in bed we all sit and watch a film and give him some much needed attention!
Sunday, as we know, was Mothers Day. This year I got a gift which I am going to treasure for years to come. The hubby and children gave me a beautiful magnolia for the garden. I am going to watch this grow with my children. I have told hubby that we can't move, ever, as I am not going to leave this special plant! We pottered about in the morning, hubby and Joseph were in the garden, the twins had a play outside, I blogged and relaxed! We went out for a walk and spent the afternoon at my parents. They had brought my Nanna over for a meal so it was lovely spending time with them. We didn't do anything 'special' as the hubby said later on, but my reply to him was that I don't need to do anything 'special' the day had been special as I had been with him and our children. This made it special as we were all together.
