The one where we visit great grandparents.

17:10

Last week we visited my grandparents. They live on a country park, in a cabin/lodge (It's brick at the bottom and then like a wood effect above that) I honestly can't describe it very well but it's beautiful! Anyway, basically they have a shared swimming pool with other people that live within in the park and family members are allowed to use! Which is handy for us, hehe. And it's free! Bonus! So whilst we were visiting the kids went for a swim in the pool! I sat on the side picnic area and tried to read my book, didn't get much reading done though, I was too busy keeping an eye on the kids.

Harry wasn't keen on the idea of getting into the pool but he did have a paddle and I'm pleased to say he did actually get in, in the end! He wouldn't let me take any photos of him IN the pool though and I respect that. Charlie and Ellie both wore arm bands to begin with but honestly, after a while, Charlie figured he didn't need them and was swimming like a fish without arm bands. Only in the shallow end because he isn't an advanced swimmer but I am super proud of how confident he is in the water! And he was teaching Ellie to swim too, she wouldn't take her arm bands off which honestly, I'm glad about because if she isn't confident without them just yet, that's fine and it's safe, you know?





We went back to my nans for lunch after a couple of hours. All that swimming made the kids hungry! We also had a walk around my granddads beautiful garden and I took some photos of his pretty flowers! I wish I could explain how lovely and florally it smells but I'm no good at describing scents haha. He is very proud of his garden, he's very good at gardening and I don't think there's anything he doesn't know about flowers and plants, haha. Enjoy the pics! :)

  12. What a fun day out and the flowers look so beautiful! We haven't had much of a summer here in the Netherlands, at least not warm enough for outdoor swimming. That pool looks perfect for a summer day though and what a nice thing to get to do while visiting Grandparents. Thanks for sharing. #TwinklyTuesday
