With the guys getting to that age when they become embarrassed to be seen out and about with their parents, Hubs and I are starting to feel a little redundant.
The events of the past few weeks have made us even more aware of just how precious our time together is and we want to make sure we give our boys the best memories ever.
Nana's passing has whisked Hubs back to his childhood, as he relives his own childhood memories by looking through the old family photographs. The guys have spent hours with him sorting through box after box of tattered and torn images of the years gone by.
J found some old and very discoloured Polaroid pictures of Hubs and his Sis when they were "little Tackers".....Gramps and Nana had taken them up on to Exmoor to go and fly kites and Hubs remembered that day 30+ years ago as if it was just yesterday.
I'm so thankful that, although Nana had boxed up the hoards of photos, she had written brief descriptions on the back of almost every image......information that we would have never known and all of which would have been gone forever if she hadn't taken the time to document it.
So with Hubs sharing his tales of his kite flying days J asked if we could go fly a kite and we did just that!
With the picnic basket packed full of delicious treats we headed off to Exmoor for the day and managed to find the exact same spot Hubs and his Sis had been whisked off to all those years ago in Grampys old Morris Minor Traveller.
We had so much fun and on the way home the guys declared that hanging out with "the oldies" wasn't so bad after all :D
Scrapping wise, in between entertaining visitors who had travelled down to pay their last respect to Nana, I managed to get 3 LO's completed.
This page was for Scrapdreamie using the wonderful Eclectique range from Chatterbox
and just a sneak of another page as its not gone live yet.
My Pencil Lines LO for this week uses a real mix of product from Sassafrass, 7 Gyspises, My Minds Eye, Making Memories, Urban Lily, Cherry Arte, American Crafts, Doodlebug and Chatterbox - I'm trying to use up my scraps as my newly revamped scraproom is bursting at its seams and I really need to use up some stash!
The guys have broken up from school for the Summer and both are all geared up to go hit the beach for the day as the sun is shining at last.
