Trip Home March 2009, Evie's 3rd and Dad's 65th Birthday

We had a fabulous (and sunny!) trip back to England in March. While there we got to celebrate Evie's and Dad's birthdays which was a lot of fun.

Millie and Evie play on the swings at Sapley Road Park.

Evie plays with her gift, the Playmobil Nursery Farm, from Nana.

Millie completes the finishing touches on Grandad's birthday cake.

Millie and Nana whipping up a treat in the kitchen.

Ollie, Millie and Evie get a closer look at the fake horses poop which actually comes with the Playmobil Nursery Farm...they really do think of everything.

Nanny, Evie and Grandad down by the river to feed the ducks.

More birthday cakes, Evie wouldn't actually let us cut her Tinkerbell cake, and to hammer the point home that she did not want to share it, she picked up each flower, licked it and then carefully placed it back on the cake. However, she didn't mind offering everyone a piece of Grandad's The Stig cake.

Easter Egg Hunt

This year Quentin and Fi put on another fine Easter Egg Brunch complete with an Easter Egg Hunt for the kiddies. Much fun was had by all.

Millie dressed in her Sunday best (fab dresses, thank you Auntie Soph!) ready to hunt down some chocolate filled eggs.

Evie also in her finest togs (thank you again Auntie Soph!), ready to find some eggs.

Millie and Evie ready to head over to Belmont to find those eggs.

The eggs had been hidden and everyone lines up with their baskets, ready to find some treats.

Jimsie cleans up...

and so does Millie.

Evie post-hunt, not quite sure what that was all about and while she managed to get 5 eggs in her basket, she found many more but decided they were not the right colour and so put them back. Doh!

Kate also cleaned up this year, fine coaching skills curtesy of older brother Jimsie.
