Caterpillars & Grazes

Sunday was a lazy day in the Jentwinkle household.  We played, listened to the radio and did some colouring before going to the park in the afternoon.

The park we went to was like a little sun trap, it was so hot there, but chilly everywhere else.  Dylan & Daisy were fascinated by a wriggly green caterpillar they found, only Dylan was brave enough to hold it though!


Daddy also did a bit of skating…


And Dylan had a go on the ramp with his trusty scooter…


On Monday we went to the inlaws for a lovely family barbeque – unfortunately it was cloudy and grey all day, but we still had fun.

Daisy loved toasting marshmallows and dunking them in melted chocolate:

Poor little Dylan had a bit of a scooter crash and grazed quite a bit of his face.  He was so brave and it looked a lot better after cleaning up the copious amounts of blood.  Granny was on hand with some antiseptic cream.  Seeing as she has 4 boys it’s no surprise she has a huge first aid box containing everything you’d ever need for any kind of minor injury!  Apparently he was attempting a new trick… I blame  Daddy for showing him clips of the Micro Scooter World Championships on Youtube  in the morning!


Apart from that it was a fairly uneventful weekend, quite a few things have been appearing thanks to the sewing machine and I have bugged a huge amount of people with my blog & shop links ;)  I made a start on Daisy’s dress for my brother in law’s wedding so will post some pics as soon as it’s finished.

As from tomorrow (today?!) I’ll be taking part in the June Loons challenge along with lots of other lovely Folksy sellers.  The aim is to list an item in your Folksy shop each day and share what the other ‘challengers’ have listed on blogs/Facebook/Twitter etc in order to help each other with some free promotion and hopefully bring in some sales for all of us.  I’m really excited about taking part as it’s my first time doing anything like this!

Check back tomorrow for a peek at what the June Loons are up to…
