This is how we spent the day...





Son-in-law Tony, The railway man, grandson Ryan and youngest grandson Matthew...





Granddaughters Samantha and Caitlin
Daughter no 1 Bec, GD Emily, daughter no 2 Sarah and GD Eden...



Yep, Mum and Dad. They actually stayed all afternoon, Mum had a good day even if she thought all the kids belonged to us, at one stage there were 15 kids of various ages in the pool and she thought they were all mine..!





This cracks me up, Dad was having trouble with the flies so Tony lent him his iconic Aussie bush hat.....





This is my favourite shot of the day, the two eldest girls, cousins, best friends and gorgeous granddaughters...

How lovely to see all those happy pictures! Very nice shots too, they will be treasured as the kids grow up! Glad your mum and dad enjoyed themselves as well. Even if you suddenly had 15 offspring! Just go with the flow!

ohhhh, looks like you had a heavenly day!!! When you consider that it's been in the 30's and 40's here (which is warm compared to the rest of the country) a little warmth would be most welcome! Alas, it will be here before we know it and we will be longing for the dredges of winter again when it is 110 degrees in the shade! But the joy of being surrounded by family is priceless no matter what time/temperature of the year!

Still can't get used to seeing people swimming in January. Here in the states, we are, well--pretty chilly. lol

Myra said...

Oh I am so jealous of all the wonderful warm sunny atmosphere around the pool you have going there... If you need a cool down come to Canada and have a jump in our snow!! lol! 8-)
