Our Month of August.

Well it's time to get back to blogging.  This month has been full of things it seems.  First Mark and I had our anniversary on the 12th.  It was our tenth anniversary.  I can't believe we have been married for 10 years.  The next was Gwyneth's 1st birthday.  That day was quite a day.  She was cranky all day!  Corina said if she knew it was her birthday she wouldn't be so cranky.  When she took a nap we decorated the dinning room with streamers and out happy birthday sign, we made the pink cake with rainbow sprinkles.  I made spaghetti because that seems to be her favorite meal for right now. It was all ready and Mark wasn't home from work yet so we had to wait.  So he finally got home and we ate and opened presents and ate the cake and sang happy birthday.  Then when I went to down load the pictures later on that night I somehow deleted all the pictures I had taken so we have none of Gwyneth's first birthday.  That was really just the icing on the cake for that day.  (If I was a child I'm pretty sureI would have thrown myself in the floor and threw a big fit but I kept it together.)

So on to the next subject....

My neighbor informed us that the summer is done and from here on out it will be getting colder.  Actually both neighbors asked how we enjoyed the 3-4 weeks of summer we had.  Ha.  Spring here did have some really nice days and summer did too.  This week though we have been waking up and it feels like one of those mornings where you want to stay under the covers because you know once you get out from under them you are going to regret it.
Another thing is that it has been raining and the grass is green again.  When it was summer it didn't rain and the grass was brown and now it's the end and everything is getting green again it seems.  In America everything get's brown at the end of summer and then it just stays that way till spring.

During one of the rainy days Corina and Aurora decided to build a pile of fluffy things at the bottom of the stairs.  It was a pretty big pile.  Corina even got her boogie board and was zinging down the stairs into the pile.  I took a video of it.  (Maybe I will post it on the next blog.)  Here are some pictures though.

Last weekend we went to a place called Wimpole Farm. It was just 30 minutes away from the house right by Cambridge. We had a good time there. It was a huge farm and they also had a Hall there with gardens.  We went to the farm part first.  You could pretend you were milking a cow and see all different kids of animals.  There was also a hay maze and a zip line and things like that.  

Here is Corina milking the pretend cow.         Check out the thatched roof.

Aurora thought this was a big pig.  And it was!                  I put this one in because it makes me smile.

Until next week!
