Saturday fun day started with a catchup Gymboree session. This time, it was Dad’s first sesh’. Eloise loved showing off to Dad and is getting more confident in group situations. Running, cackling and rolling about with the other kids. She was one of the younger ones in the smaller class today.
Eloise had so much fun on Friday at the Faerie Pumpkin Patch that we figured this afternoon we would try our hand at pumpkin carving for the first time. After lunch, we were off to ASDA. Of course, the measuring tape, Eloise’s new favourite toy, had to come with us. We picked our two wee pumpkins (some were enormous) and carving set. Had a tactical afternoon nap, then it was carving time. After a quick tutorial from the University of YouTube, we were set. Eloise was not sure about carving initially and was more interested in the face tattoo design. The hot pink pumpkin carving suit was a good laugh, unfortunately, it did not last long.
We were obviously rookies because we had forgotten the candles. Another dash to ASDA, which involved convincing Eloise we were not here to buy fireworks.
Lachlan had a quiet one today. More of a night party owl (like aunty Becca). He is getting better at sitting up, still does not like sitting still like his Dad, yahhh. We were undressing him at night getting him ready for his bath when he tried to make a break for it, getting up on his knees, trying to crawl. Uh oh.
Once the kids were in bed, Liam went off to the ODEON Luxe Glasgow Quay Cinema with some friends to watch the new James Bond movie, No Time To Die. Its release had been delayed pretty much since the start of the pandemic. It is out in Australia soon, no spoilers here. The Cinemas were similar to EVENT Gold Class Cinemas, with big comfy reclining seats. You could order pizzas, hot dogs, pretty much anything. Not bad value for £10, it was packed. It is one of those movies that has to be watched on the big screen. The wait was worth it, it is up there with the best of Bond. Apparently, Sophie is not interested in James Bond, even though our first date was to watch James Bond Skyfall. How romantic.
Lachlan started Sunday morning with his regular run (trying to crawl).
It was then off to Jennine and Bill’s for a lovely lunch. Lachlan enjoyed a couple of extra cuddles. Eloise was fascinated with the squirrels eating and burying nuts in the lawn.
The man’s a genius.
