What a fun week we all had.

My lovely family returned to the cold of New Jersey, yesterday. We had such a great time together, and it was so special to see the three children again and watch them having fun. Much of the time was spent playing in the pool at the club, and Sienna went to the golf and tennis workshops, which were organised for the children. There was live music and also games for the children by the pool. Sienna came joint first in the hula hoop competition, and got ‘$100’ bill, which bought her an ice cream at the restaurant. πŸ™‚ I was so impressed at how she just kept that hula going, even when she had to jump, wave her arms in the air and then go down on one knee a few times. What a granny’s girl! The guy organising the games realised that these two girls could go on ‘ad infinitum’, so decided to award them both. Sienna is the little one on the left.


Three-year-old Taylor was more interested in hogging the microphone, and was given her chance to make announcements, which she did with great gusto.


Here are some pics of the fun times, this past week. Just click on any photo to get a slide show.

This morning, breakfast for two instead of seven, was a very quiet affair, except for the sound of the washing machine working overtime. Hubby and I are now off to the gym, before coming home to tackle the myriads of tiny, sticky hand prints on the glass doors and mirrors. πŸ™‚

Wishing you all a great weekend.

  1. A fun week indeed. The laughter and smiles just lights up with each picture. It’s great to be among friends and family, just sharing an exciting , beautiful day. Thanks.

  2. These are some awesome pics … anytime you have family and a pool…it’s definitely a great time. The first pic is my favorite. Looks like you had a great week!

  3. What beautiful, happy photos. Family visits are even more special when the family do not live close by. I am so looking forward to my daughter visiting next week and my son beginning of April. They both live in NZ. Only staying a week each due to work comittments but every moment will be treasured.

  4. Such a happy post. Such happy memories.
    Your granny is going to be 100 in the summer? Wow that’s awfully exciting. I assume you’re going to have a huge family reunion?

    • Thanks, Rosie. Yes, we’re all meeting in England for the party, and then she’s taking her three children and their spouses on a Rhine cruise. Lucky me! πŸ™‚

  5. Loved all the great pics, but the last one was best of all with dad all tuckered out from all that fun. I even liked the glimpse of the lovely painting in that shot and the pretty orchid in another. It looks like you had a fantastic visit. I just feel sorry for the ones returning to the nasty weather in NJ.

  6. I feel good taking part of your fantastic week. A week with loads of laughter, play, fun, warmth and togetherness. Maybe a couple of Mojitos too ???? Great post and lovely photos gallery.

  7. I don’t know about hogging the microphone, looks like she was trying to eat it in that photo! πŸ™‚

  8. Hoola hoops and paper dolls. Some things just don’t change. These girls are pretty in pink. I know you enjoyed their visit, but I bet you are exhausted. Daddy is. πŸ™‚

  9. Cute, I’m guessing there are a few handprints you’ll accidentally “miss” with the paper towel!

    • Oh, it needed more than paper towel, Elisa. Bucket and squeegee was deployed, We have lots of sliding glass doors and mirrors all over the house. 😯
