My little bit of this big World

Jubilee celebrations.

 On Thursday we were invited to a family fun day with Portsmouth Downs Syndrome charity, we went with daughter, SIL, Will, George and Molly, just a few photo's of the day. It was held in a huge garden of a farm near Petersfield, there was loads of room to run around, the boys were both safe to play, Will has loads of friends in this group and was happy all day.  

The children had fancy dress, Molly was Queen, both Will and George were guardsmen, which Will loved as he knows his Grancha was a guardsman and did duty at Buckingham Palace. Hopefully we will get to see the professional photos soon. Molly does look cute, the only way we could keep her hat and wig on was to give her food. 
Hubby and youngest daughter, so good to see her happy, last month was so hard for her, but on a lovely day out, all can be forgotten. 

This amazing charity put on a fantastic day, loads of fun things for the children to do, Miss G came to entertain everyone, loads of soft drinks, a BBQ and later icecreams. Each child who dressed up had a huge bar of chocolate, and as they left each child was given a gift, everything again was free, they are brilliant at family functions. Tommy Jessop was also there, he grew up locally, he was in Line of Duty, he often attends.

It means so much to us as grandparents to see this lovely family enjoying themselves, and to spend such a wonderful time together. The weather was hot and sunny, a few clouds, which cooled us down in short breaks, all three children changed into cooler outfits, there was plenty of shade, so a really enjoyable day.
