a week of bears
A few days ago we went into cardiff to get Lucie a special bear made for her at the bear factory. (its just a glorified shop really, but hey its a fun way to spend birthday money). Both the other two got bears from the same place last year... remember these??? Her new bear is the third one in from the left in the top picture. (This post could end up with a lot of pics on, so you can see the bear being chosen and made over on flickr.) We did not choose any clothes for bear yet, I was going to make her a dress, and we did buy 2 ear-flowers and a ukulele, however Lucie will not allow the flowers to be worn, when I asked why she told me bear was a boy! I guess I wont bother with the dress then.
So, then yesterday we braved the great british summer weather we are having (think rain) and set out for the woods, with our teddies and friends, for a picnic. at first it was a bit wet, and the new shelter came into its own.
but after a bit the rain calmed to light spots, we moved to try to avoid the midges that were eating us alive (they followed) and eventually the rain stopped altogether.
We sang happy birthday with cake number 4 (see previous post for more cake!) And I can safely say I dont want to make another cake for a month thankyou.
Then we played (on the dry courtyard),
went for a walk,
played deep in the forest,
played some more
until it was time to go.
A fun day, well, (apart from a few moments of trouble with icing not behaving...) a fun week.
