A Play Date in the Garden with Cousin Rio
Last week, we had the opportunity to travel to Barnsley (the town of my birth) to visit my Nanan Sylvia, my aunty and my cousin Rio.
Last time I saw my cousin he was a new born, his name is Rio and he is a cheeky monkey and I love him to bits. Although Sylvia and Rio had never played together before, they played really well together and it was lovely to be able to spend a few hours with family- these moments are precious, even more so when I am too unwell to visit as often as I would like.
Sylvia and Rio had a fab time in my Nanan’s Garden and I wanted to share the pictures here on the blog. So here is a photographic record of the afternoon. It was such a lovely day and the kids had fun while I chatted to my family and spent quality time on the sofa with my Nanan Sylvia.
I’m truly grateful for my Nanan. She is such a wonderful woman. Life has not always been easy for her and she lost the love of her life many years ago- but she is strong and now has over 55 grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Sylvia had plenty of fun with Rio, they enjoyed playing in the newly improved garden and enjoyed a number of Wicken toys.
My Nanan is a amazing. It is not easy to see her as unwell as she is. Her mobility is not so great these days and she has COPD but she still makes the most of her life and is a wonderful woman and grandmother to me.
Nanan enjoys sitting outdoors with the kids around her and we were thinking about buying one of those kids swing sets so she can watch the children having fun whilst out in the fresh air. I think that would be a great idea! I will have to take a look and see what we can find.
