Donning one of her multiple pairs of sunglasses and her swimming costume Iz hit her Grandma and Grandad’s back garden and she owned it, lazing with her feet dangling in her paddling pool like a Hollywood star.
We were there for the first BBQ of the year and Iz was doubly excited as her cousins, Jamie and Amelia, were also in attedance. She followed Amelia round as if she was her shadow, following her wherever she went, playing catch, eating together and Iz hanging on and laughing at her every word. There was some serious heroine worship going on.
With not enough sun-soaked hours in the day Iz had to combine activities to cram them all in, such as eating and trampolining, a shoe in to be an Olympic sport surely…plus any time saved obviously meant more able to be spent with Amelia.
Of course all good things must come to an end and inevitably people had to go home and tears were had but the memories and fun had during the sunny day will long linger.
