After their visit to St. Paul’s Noah and Kristi headed out to Woodford Green to meet up with me and the kids. It was a glorious day, bright and beautiful and so we headed to Queen Elizabeth's Hunting lodge in Epping Forrest to have a picnic of Fish and Chips and Trifle (Noah's favorite). It was a perfect, crystally kind of afternoon.
And we took way too many pictures. Yes, I know. Emmeline is a total ragamuffin, with her un-brushed hair always in her face. But, boy do I love this girl. She has pizazz! And she loves to take pictures.Hazel, like always, spent most of the afternoon picking flowers and climbing trees. And Peter cuddled with me and charmed the socks off of everyone.And Charlie just did his usual super handsome thing.
It was so great for the kids to be with their Aunt and Uncle. Noah and Kristi are the kind of people who are still super fun for the kids even though they have kids of their own (as opposed to me, who became really a drab aunt once my own kids started tiring me out).
What a perfect day. I miss that lush green life.
