We had such a wonderful day on Saturday - I am super-pleased we decided to make the trip to Pearly Beach. It only took just over two hours to get there (only?) and although Sam only slept for twenty minutes he was amazing the whole way and didn't moan or cry once (thanks to a whole lotta book-reading, singing, etc). Hey, whatever it takes! He also only slept another twenty minutes on the way back and from the bottom of the pass until we got home (approximately thirty-five minutes) he jumped..and jumped....AND J.U.M.P.E.D!
On the way, just after 7:00 am
We had some breakfast as soon as we arrived and in between that and the wonderful lunch Sammy's Granny and Aunty Alvie prepared for us, there was loads of catching up to do. Uncle Charlie and Granny entertained Sam with some karaoke while I got a chance to eat.
A pic of me and Sam with Granny and Brampa - the very first one, if I am not mistaken, as my folks have been divorced for some time and, living quite a distance apart, we don't get many opportunities to all be together.
Brampa, Uncle Charlie, Aunty Alvie and Granny and Sam,of course.
Sam was in his element...a whole new set of cupboard doors, room doors and security gates to be opened and closed. We've decided that Sam could possibly have a future in any of the following careers...a doorman, a SABS engineer (testing door hinges, handles, windows, etc), a dentist or orthodontist...the sky's the limit where our little Smurf is concerned.
What the weather looked like coming over Sir Lowry's Pass (my favourite - NOT), on the way home. Pretty miserable.
And if there is anything...and I mean ANYTHING lying on the floor...big, small, round, flat, breathing (poor kitty) - you name it...Sam takes it for granted its been put there purely for him to first kick and then try and stand on it.
Meg made a beautiful Happy Birthday card for her granny (the pink one on the left).
Now I am off to go write down all my questions for tomorrow morning.....just have to try and remember to take the darn thing with me when we leave!
P.S. Sam has been asleep for the last two hours and eight minutes...and, yes, I have checked several times to make sure that he is actually still breathing :)
