We went visiting my Nan today to give the man on the Lilypad some well deserved "blue" time as it all gets a little bit too pink and girly in our house sometimes. My girls love to see their Great Grandmother and sit playing with toys that I am quite sure have been in that toybox since I was a child but today with the weather being so lovely, they ventured out into her garden to go exploring.
Soon I heard squeals of "we found a blackberry bush" and they were determined they were going to pick some!
My Nan couldn't walk as far as the blackberry bush but she was giving them strict instructions to only pick the ripe ones and there little fingers were sneaking their way through the leaves to find them.
Unfortunately for me, the only time I tried to get involved I managed to get caught in the thorns so I left them and their little hands to it. (note to self: Blackberry bushes can be dangerous if not careful or have tiny hands)
They absolutely loved it and I am not sure if they were more excited about finding them in their Great Grandmothers own garden or wanting to have them for dessert!
Sometimes it is just the little things that make your day!
