Sunny Day Fun

As we are not having a go-away-somewhere type holiday this summer, Mr Locket's rare days off are a treat for us all. And as the weather forecasters have got it wrong again and it is not turning out to be a "barbecue summer" a rare patch of nice sunshine made today even more special!

We bribed the little Lockets to go to the allotment by offering them a trip to the beach afterwards as long as they helped pick the crops.

This is the basket of veg that we dropped off with Granny and Grandpa Biscuit on our way to the seaside.

And here are the motley crew getting themselves well and truly soggy!


and we have photographic evidence of Dot splashing Daisy

of Daisy doing some weird acrobatics!


and then the three of them just looking gorgeous


I tried to get a photo of the three of them digging together so that I could update the one on my header which is now 2 years old but I didn't manage to get one they all liked so it will have to wait until the next trip to the beach.

What a breath of fresh air to get a day even near suitable for a beach visit - it's a little worrying that the past three years have had the glorious weather in June and then yucky weather once the kids break up - I can feel a campaign for moving the school term dates coming on!

OK, having seen your gorgeous produce I'm not showing you my sad and curly beans. Or did you really unload an Abel and Cole box?

Wow! Look at that allotment haul -- excellent growing this year Ms. Locket! The little Lockets are looking adorable as ever!

Marie said...

Wow. That's a whole lotta veggies!

Looks like the little lockets had a fab day. Why is it as soon as you suggest or even think of a photo shot you'd like to get it becomes near impossible to get it? Always the way.

The caterpillars have all been enjoying our veg. What's your secret?

Glad the rain help off long enough to go to the beach. It looks very empty there, were you all on your own?
