We had a very pleasant walk today from Wilverley Plain, heading off in a big circle towards Brockenhurst, via Rhinefield Lodge. We had a nice picnic and saw some Peregrine Falcons hunting.
Here are the foot soldiers, with Lewis carrying Miranda.
After a game of footie at Wilverley we headed down to Braxton Gardens for tea and cake, and then Keyhaven for a stroll by the sea. Top day out!

Friday night and it's down to the beach to chill. Tonight we played rounders whilst Miranda had a snooze. Greg couldnt quite get the hang of "drop the bat and run!"
We changed to frisbee and had a lot more success, and by the time we'd tried out the new playground, a sweat had been worked up. This was taken running back to the car, last frame but one!

Portraits should capture a fragment of a person's soul, or maybe they should just be a likeness of that person at some point in time. Either way this is Lewis, at supper time yesterday, having just eaten dinner, and getting ready to go out and play for half an hour. His face is glowing for a moment.... I love that eye just creeping out from under the fringe, and the lip curled under - you could write a book on facial expression, but what would be the point?

Today it's a rather windblown Lewis' turn to charm us with his portrait. We had our first outing in the canoe on the weekend, and the sea was quite choppy, so Lewis though it would be fun to do some pop-up and rollovers.... No Lewis not just yet!

You may wonder why I have so many pics of Gregory eating lunch. Some would argue it's because he's slow eating, others (myself) that it's the only time one finds to pick up a camera for fun.... The reality is that Greg loves acting when he's eating, and the range of expressions and stories he come out with is amazing.

Back to the present, and here's mr cheeky chappie doing what he does best. It was no surprise earlier to note that this year I have over 800 photos of Greg and 225 of Lewis.... Well those are the ones I have tagged as noteworthy - total photos this year so far almost 5000, so slightly down on last years 17k total. The family blog has proven to be a useful discipline in creating fresh images on a regular basis, if nothing else!

My mother proving there's no need to act your age when you can still act your shoe size! Throwing all caution to the wind, and forgetting that the last visit to casualty was because she fell from a Tarzan rope... she chose to go on Chris' skateboard towed by his Nibs.

Here's my little bruv Chris taking advantage of Hannah and Gregory at Llanstephan beach on the weekend. Easter weekend in Welsh Wales would seem like an unlikely place to spend a day, (let alone two) on the beach. But we did and we all have a warm tan into the bargain now.

Forever a "little girl" in my eyes, here's Christabel swinging Gregory around like a doll - with a fairly manic look in her eye. Gregory cried as the party waved goodbye, normally this is Lewis' routine, but not today!

We have been decended upon by the Guthrie's, so here's apicture of Els Bells playing cards with the boys. It was a close run thing between Christabel wearing a mouldy old hat, and this - this won. Am forced to listen to some decent music whilst I load this, rather than the junk on her iPod.

Here's Tiger, pulling the boat in. Which boat we don't know, but as the tide is out we certainly wont be seeing the boat. Still there's nothing like a challenge to our Lewis, who enjoys pulling coal trucks, railway carriages, or fallen trees. One day one will move and he'll be happy

Today's post is written by Lewis and Gregory!
Miranda is smiling at Gregory, and looks very cheeky today. She's looking happy because she has just eaten her breakfast. Miranda likes baby rice, apple, sweetcorn, plum, pear, sweet potato, banana, swede and avocado.
