Gillard's Water Fun Theme Park!

We've had a lovely day today. We had the lovely Marie over with the 2 munchkins Gracie (Little Miss Cookie) and Ewan (The Eggman)! Thankfully, the day was beautiful so we made the most of it and got out every single outside-ish toy in our possession.

After a pic-er-nic lunch, we got the kids into their swimming cossies for a cool down in the pool:
However, for our little daredevils, a simple paddling pool wasn't risky enough, so they made their own white knuckle ride using Xander's slide. Gracie was definately the queen of the splash:
After the 300th time of trying to stop the boys running in the house soaking wet, one very near miss with the water vs my scrapping stash, and Xander deciding to sit down in the pool in his towel, Marie and I decided to dry the kids off and bring them inside. Although we got plenty of toys out for the boys, we couldn't distract them once Mickey Mouse Clubhouse came on (give them 30 years and it'll still be the same look on their faces when Top Gear's on!):We did manage to drag them away however for a quick colouring session:Marie and the kids then stayed for a good old Friday 'chippy tea' then headed off back over them there hills!

Thanks to the 3 of you, we had a lovely day!
