After yesterday's rain the patio area is still a little wet, but the day is bright and sunny and it seems the girls were first up so that they didn't miss their chance to play outside.
They seem to be on a bit of a mission though...I wonder what is up?
Emily has chosen to ride the skateboard...she is pretty good on it as well.
Little Erica adores Peggy Sue and looks up to her in awe.
Amy is riding the bike whilst there are whisperings between Stevie and Danni who is taking her baby for a walk in the pram.
Cute little baby!
Little Erica is still chatting away.
Peggy Sue is doing her best to answer all the endless questions.
Ziva and Charlotte are waiting for the others to approach as they have something they want to talk about.
Come on! They call.
The girls all gather round.
Their conversation went something like this....
I think we should have a Halloween party.
But Mum will never allow it.
Yes, but she let us have these dresses...
She said that is 'different'. We still can't ACTUALLY celebrate Halloween or have a party.
But why? That seems silly logic to me.
Well you know what Mums are like sometimes. She said it wouldn't be fair on her big boys if she let us when she never let them.
Well perhaps we could call it something else? Emily finally suggests.
That is a good idea. The other girls agree.
I know let's call it a Harvest Party - End of Harvest Party anyway....
They seem to think they might be able to get away with that idea and they all go off to chat about it in their various groups.
Peggy Sue missed out on most of the discussion as Little Erica was too busy chatting to her.
Peggy Sue is very patient.
Emily and Amy decide to continue playing outside on the skate board and bike.
In the meantime.....
Rory is supposed to be helping the boys with their plans, but is too distracted.
He is looking for his frog...but is looking the wrong way.
Turn your head Rory and you will see him poking his head out of the water just behind that greenery.
There he is!
There is no distracting the boys though.
Gwilym, Bobby and Henry are busy measuring up.
I think this is the ideal length. Bobby says.
If we had another four pieces this length we will have a nice flat platform.
Right then, let's get to work. Both Henry & Gwilym suggest.
