riley couldn't get enough of the bouncy castle, drum set and running around with little friends.
thank you again, we had a fantastic time! xxx
it’s with tears in our eyes that we say goodbye to our house (of the last 4 years) and move into a new area in Surrey. we will always think fondly of this house that provided us with so many memories, see this post.
not too sure about internet yet, so probably no blog posts for awhile. and i’m also going to be overloaded with boxes, adjusting to the new area and looking for new places to take little mister.
last year this time my sister janine was here, and i miss her so much. i think i tell her this about every single day. except for the fact that she could have helped us with this move, i miss all the places we went to see. it made me realise how much more fun the summer here in london is if you can go to all these places. it’s not always the best thing to do it on your own (with a little one).
i had a look at some of the things we did last year this time, like: going to richmond for wayne’s birthday; going to the natural history museum & butterfly exhibition; going to st. dunstan in the east and southbank, to name a few things. these photos also shows me just how big a little boy riley has become.
luckily for us, my other sister karlien and her little one katinka is coming here in october – oooh i’m so excited and can’t wait anymore.
enough about missing family and feeling sad because i don’t see them very often. here is some photos of riley to cheer me up.
he loves reading!! he will read just about anything and anywhere (and with or without clothes too). i love the photo where he sits in his bumbo (and yes he still fits in it, quite easily i may add).
a few more of my little man:
have a great weekend all!
think about us when you are all relaxing on the sofa with a drink in the hand, because we will be knee (arms, legs) deep in boxes.
we’ve been crazy busy these last few weeks with packing (for our move in a few days) & with enjoying the outside since the weather is absolutely gorgeous.
every day with this little man is an experience; like this day when he wanted to walk around with an umbrella the whole day (don’t forget the faded dinosaur tattoo on his arm & sunglasses) and he even watched curious george from under the umbrella. it was so funny and that face…
playing in the pool (with or without clothes) and eating cold fruit is a must.
eating ice cream and being silly while you doing it, is also a must in this hot summers weather.
having lunch, taking selfies & pulling faces with mommy is the way to go.
for Super Sunday (CRC) we went to the O2 – what a ‘Super’ day
we’ve had some beautiful clear skies these last few days, oh man, i love summer.
wayne’s birthday cake (not too sure why the icing turned out this lovely shade of pink, i did add almost the whole bottle of red colouring). and that little ‘teeth baring’ face, is the one i got when i asked him to smile for a photo.
all this sun and activities are such hard work for a growing 2 year old, so occasionally falling asleep on the go is the best thing to do.
and lastly, these are the cutest nieces that anyone can ask for.
i miss you guys!!
have a wonderful humpday!
