playing outside before lunch

The sun was out again this morning, I could get used to it.  After getting the girls dressed we went outside to play in the garden before lunch.  My eldest took her dolly for a walk round the garden and in her words, 'shhh Mummy I am trying to get the baby to sleep'.

After she had got her baby to sleep, she drove her car and when I asked where she was going she said shopping


Her sister helped by keeping watch

It was really lovely to spend some time this morning with the girls playing in the garden and really lovely to hear my eldest using her imagination.  I am looking forward to the summer, fingers crossed we get one, so that I can start making the garden ours and paint the girls play house and climbing frame.

This day I love playing outside before lunch
