In the garden

After we came home this afternoon we blowed up the Fifi and the Flowertots 'thing' we bought for Faith a few weeks back. She saw it for the first time last night. We had to blow it up in the kitchen and open both patio doors to get it outside. It took some blowing up I can tell you, even with an electric pump and a manual pump.

Faith loves it and took her colouring things out there right away.

Grandad had to try it as well!

It's supposed to be a ball pool but we parted with all the balls we had when she was a baby so might put some water in it over the next few days.

Chepstow Castle.

We went up to visit family on Tuesday and yesterday we brought our Grandaughter Faith back to spend a few days with us.
Today we went to Chepstow and went to look round the ruins of Chepstow Castle. It really is a massive place and must have been quite something in it's time. It stands right on the banks of the river Wye overlooking England. The river was used to bring food, wine and ale into the Castle, it all being hoisted up from the boats below.
The weather was beautiful and I think Faith was worn out with walking up and down all the steps before we were. She was a bit unsure of some of the stone spiral stairscases, but it was worth the climbs to see the views.

We sat in the grounds outside the Castle and had our lunch and tried to show Faith how to make daisy chains. Grandad's idea of this was to tie the daisies together!
