Fun moments from the UK

The kids have been great while we've been in England. John has been very busy helping his mom and sisters plan his dad's funeral and start the long process of sorting out all Sam's effects. I've been trying to keep the kids busy, but they've spent a lot of time in doors entertaining themselves. They were very well behaved at the crematorium and the funeral service, and John and I finally managed to get an afternoon to take them out and have some fun.

So here are a few pics of some of the things they've been doing this last couple of weeks.

Cousin Naomi Gillham makes cookies with Kez

Noah and Kez race through the playground

Naomi with Kez on the old rocking horse in John's childhood home

Granny Pam and Aidan get some fresh air and exercise

Aidan at the Parrot Zoo

Noah decided he wants to be a parrot feeder when he grows up

Noah and feathered-friend

Kez with a rather "Holy Spirit dove" looking bird

I was kinda scared of this big ol' green one sitting on Kez's head, but she didn't seem to mind

The weather was beautiful so we stopped to pick strawberries on our way home from the Parrot Zoo

Yum yum...we ate the fruit of our labour with whipped cream over meringue nests.

I'm glad you got a break and some fun in the middle of a sad circumstance. I'm glad your kids got to see John's old stomping ground, too. Sounds like fun.
