Last weekend we all got together, as a family, for the first time this year.
When the rules changed in July and family members were allowed to stay over in your home our DiL called and asked if they could come and stay. Of course I said yes at once. Admittedly, I was a little worried to start with as, apart from the Sky man, we haven't had anyone in our house since lock down started.
Dates were arranged around working schedules and last Friday they came to stay.
What a joy it was to see them.
We spent a lovely evening in the garden, dining al fresco and chatting until the bats and moths came out.
On Saturday we went to Chester Zoo. The sun came out again and we had a lovely day.
Little man did so well, and apart from a few times when daddy carried him on his shoulders, he walked the length and breadth of the zoo. He was more than happy to hold Uncle S's hand.
And he shared his ice cream with daddy.
We're now making plans to visit them in the October holidays. I can't wait.
